vSEC:CMS will change your views on how to manage the lifecycle of user authentication credentials. The vSEC:CMS S-Series is an innovative, easily integrated and cost effective Smart Card Management System or Credential Management System (SCMS or CMS) that will help you deploy and manage credentials within your organization.

The vSEC:CMS S-Series is fully functional with minidriver enabled credentials such as smart cards and it streamlines all aspects of managing credentials by connecting to enterprise directories, certificate authorities, physical access control systems, email servers, log servers, biometric fingerprint readers, PIN mailers... the list goes on.
