Frost and Sullivan Honors CoreStreet
Frost and Sullivan has picked access control company CoreStreet as the winner of its 2003 Technology Innovation Award for Homeland Security. CoreStreet’s Real Time Credential Validation Authority (RTC VA) solution was honored for being “the most innovative and practical product of the year, it’s that simple,” according to Winn Harden, Frost and Sullivan aerospace and defense analyst.
The RTC VA converges physical and logical access control without the costly network and security infrastructure of earlier generation systems. “Government, financial services, healthcare related agencies and other global 1000 companies will find the RTC VA a perfect complement to authentication products already in place,” Harden says.
RTC VA works by sending small codes – as little as 20 bytes – called ‘proofs’ to establish certificate validation. The proofs can be used to determine the validity of a digital certificate or establish individual privileges or access rights. Unlike previous public key infrastructure (PKI) implementations, the RTC VA does not require secure responders.
“CoreStreet is the only software company to offer a cost-effective solution for the government and global 1000 companies that answers the simple question of whether or not an individual is authorized access to a military installation, building, computer network or laptop or wireless device,” says Phil Libin, CoreStreet president.
The Technology Innovation Award is presented each year to companies “demonstrating technological excellence within its industry.
