vSEC:CMS on Azure

The vSEC:CMS on Azure is an innovative, easily integrated and cost-effective Credential Management System (CMS) that will help you deploy and manage credentials within your organization. vSEC:CMS will change your views on how to manage the lifecycle of physical and virtual credentials. Organizations can run vSEC:CMS C-Series in public clouds, private clouds and hybrid clouds.

Vendor Independent

vSEC:CMS is fully functional with minidriver enabled credentials such as smart cards, USB tokens and virtual smart cards including Windows Hello for Business (WHfB) 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. With vSEC:CMS organizations can issue credentials to employees, personalize the credentials with authentication credentials and manage the lifecycle of the credentials – directly from the cloud.

A cornerstone of vSEC:CMS is security, all sensitive data and keys are secured using hardware. Operators of the system are authenticated using two-factor authentication and all usage is securely audited for full traceability.
The main task of a CMS is to securely connect user identities (credentials) into an enterprise systems and maintain this connection throughout the lifecycle of the credential. That implies the need of secure communication with several external systems.
