ActivIdentity launches FIPS 201 Partner Program

California-based ActivIdentity, a manufacturer of authentication and credentialing solutions, announced this week that it is launching a new FIPS 201 Partner Program aimed at providing government agencies and commercial clients with integrated security management solutions.

In addition, the company also announced the release of its new F5 PAC Solution with API, which "provides a seamless and transparent module to authenticate PIV credentials at any of the specified assurance levels for controlled, limited and exclusion areas."

As a part of the partner program, ActivIdentity said it would provide the FIPS 201 F5 Solution, as well as several other products including ActivID CMS and ActivClient.

"Manufacturers have looked to us for help in developing cost-effective access control and credential management solutions for their government agency and government contractor customers to meet the new government mandates for PIV," said Todd Freyman, director of government markets worldwide for ActivIdentity. "Our FIPS 201 F5 Solution combines the unique approach of delivering compliance with today’s standards while providing an economical upgrade path to adapt to evolving government-mandated standards. The F5 Module component of the solution can be field upgraded with updates pushed out from the head-end to all devices on the network, and it maintains full offline functionality."
