Codebench integrates PIVCheck software with S2 Security Corporation’s NetBox

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. and FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — (January 10, 2012) Codebench, Inc., the leading provider of TWIC / HSPD-12 / FIPS-201 authentication software, and S2 Security Corporation announced today that Codebench's PIVCheck Plus software suite, an end-to-end card validation, authentication, and registration solution for HSPD-12 compliance, now seamlessly integrates with the S2 NetBox Extreme and Enterprise systems from S2 Security Corporation.

Pairing the PIVCheck Plus solution with S2's physical security management systems will allow for automatic updates to cardholder records within the S2 system, streamline security management and ensure up-to-date user status. S2 Security, a global provider of IP-based integrated physical security systems, will market this integration to government, petrochemical and port security integrators.

"We have seen a lot of interest in offering S2 integration to meet the security requirements of organizations held to FIPS-201 compliance standards," said John Moss, CEO of S2 Security. "S2 is pleased to offer integrated physical security management products to help these sectors meet their specific security requirements."

By combining PIVCheck Plus and S2's NetBox Extreme and Enterprise, federal government users and other organizations that need to comply with HSPD-12 requirements can easily validate FIPS-201 compliant credentials in real-time and can continue that validation on an ongoing, user-defined schedule. In addition, it will allow entities to easily register PIV, TWIC, CAC or FRAC cards without having to perform additional data entry on each cardholder.

"We are excited that our PIVCheck software integrates with S2 Security's physical security management systems," said Geri B. Castaldo, CEO of Codebench. "This integration with S2 Security provides government agencies and others that need to comply with HSPD-12 requirements with a choice as to which solution is most appropriate for their needs."

Codebench's PIVCheck software suite provides a seamless transition to HSPD-12 or FIPS-201 compliance by leveraging a facility's physical access control system for card validation, authentication, and registration.
