Authentium Delivers Extensible Service Platform

Framework lets customers select, swap, and manage best-of-breed enterprise client software with the click of a mouse

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Dec. 13, 2006 -- Authentium Inc. announced today the immediate availability of the Authentium Extensible Service Platform (ESP) for Enterprise, enabling organizations to procure, deploy, and manage anti-spyware, anti-virus, content- filtering solutions, and other endpoint software applications from multiple vendors through a single, integrated, management interface.

With ESP Enterprise, network administrators no longer have to settle for nonperforming vendor solutions. Through a simple online interface, administrators can remove an existing security tool and select a new one within minutes, eliminating the need to interface with multiple vendors. Authentium's next-generation ESP Enterprise platform enables fast, easy deployment of security and other application modules from Authentium and other leading developers, plus integrated procurement, policy configuration, reporting, and update-management capabilities. Additionally, acquiring new licenses can be easily managed through the console, reducing the time it takes to get users up and running.

Authentium's ESP Enterprise platform was designed specifically to enable service providers such as carriers, ISPs, and cable companies to customize and embed security technologies from Authentium and other developers -- such as anti-virus, real-time anti-spyware, endpoint firewall, content filtering, and compliance monitoring -- into their service offerings for distribution to large enterprise and small business customers.


Authentium's unique approach to security provides the following key benefits:

  • Central management: Manage endpoint protection across the enterprise from one central console

  • Best-of-breed: Select protection modules from a catalog of multiple vendors and technologies

  • Support for any buying criteria: Create custom deployments for departments within an organization based on virtually any criteria, such as price, performance, brand, or features

  • Proactive policies: Create protection policies that block threats before they can compromise desktop security

  • Simple interface: Swap out nonperforming vendor modules with the click of a mouse

  • Robust management: View comprehensive reports on deployment, protection status, and alert history

  • Broad protection: Comprehensive threat database ensures protection against viruses, worms, trojans, spyware, and other threats
