The increased global business challenges which have been experienced over the last few days, as a result of the recent volcanic eruptions in Iceland, have highlighted the need for constant accessibility to practical answers, expert advice, and proven solutions which are available 24-7 and without an over reliance on planes, trains and automobiles.

Cisco as the worldwide leader in networking aims to transform how people connect, communicate and collaborate and open up possibilities around the world for companies in a format that is convenient for users. The disruption caused by the grounding of flights across the UK, Ireland, Norway, northern France, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, the Netherlands and Belgium, demonstrates the need for increased borderless networking and improved online solutions.

The new TechWise TV videos have been released as part of Cisco’s latest marketing push and cover the important and highly pertinent subjects of Data Centers, Collaboration and Borderless Networks for businesses.

The video entitled ‘Journey to Unified Computing‘ covers how to simplify a data center and discovering the benefits of this new architectural approach and the unified Cisco Interactive Network. This broadcast illustrates the benefits of unified computing in a data center how to reduce costs and improve ROI while migrating incrementally to protect existing investments.

Your Network Has the Power‘ is a 60-minute episode of TechWiseTV provides help with how to aggregate and share power supplies for greater efficiency and resilience and transform and optimize a network into a strategic energy management tool across an entire organization.

The ‘IP Telephony Without the Migration Migraines‘ TechWise broadcast covers IP telephony migration with a complete roadmap developed through dozens of customer implementations to help make a smooth transition, including planning, technical nuts and bolts, carrier considerations, signaling and protocol options, training, security, and more.

Expansion of company’s SecureAuth authentication products fuels growth

MultiFactor Corporation, an innovator in 2-way 2-factor authentication, Web application security and SSL VPN Authentication solutions, announces record fourth quarter growth of its SecureAuth authentication products, despite the slumping global economy.

Thomas Stewart, CFO of MultiFactor Corporation stated, “Our recently completed Q4 ‘08 sales revenues maintained 300 percent quarter over quarter growth for the third consecutive quarter as enterprises and Web operators are increasingly adopting SecureAuth as a superior authentication method for SSL VPN, IPsec VPN, and secure Web applications. We are very happy with our ‘08 results and our projections for 2009 are strong.”

A contributing factor to SecureAuth’s continued market growth was the addition in the third and fourth quarter of native integration into Juniper SSL VPN products, CA’s SiteMinder and the IBM Tivoli Security Products. This complements very strong adoption for SecureAuth with Cisco ASA SSL VPNs, Microsoft Outlook Web Access, Microsoft SharePoint Server and all .NET applications. New customers were drawn to the automated simplicity of a truly strong dual factor authentication scheme. SecureAuth’s low acquisition cost and minimal implementation burden provided added incentive to move forward.

“Security concerns have not subsided due to the economic downturn,” said Craig Lund, CEO of MultiFactor Corporation. “On the contrary, threats are increasing and rendering legacy authentication methods practically obsolete. SecureAuth’s novel technology allows companies to have the strongest authentication without the large capital investment.”

“In these times, we are fortunate to be operating in the relatively resilient sector of IT security,” added Lund. “However, we are even more fortunate to have a product with a price/performance value far superior to any competitive or substitutive technology.”

About MultiFactor Corporation
MultiFactor Corporation is the leader in automated 2-way 2-factor user authentication. SecureAuth is a true plug-n-play multi-factor authentication mechanism that allows secure access into the enterprise network and application resources.
