A Swivel Secure reforça a agilidade operacional para clientes e parceiros de canal

A Swivel Secure, líder global na tecnologia de autentificação sem token, anuncia algumas alterações operacionais que irão trazer uma maior agilidade ao seu compromisso, tanto com os clientes como com os parceiros.

Modelos de preços flexíveis

De modo a apoiar a procura crescente do mercado por autentificação sem token a ser oferecida como parte de um serviço de gestão, a Swivel anuncia hoje um novo esquema de preços de prazo flexível, ao enquadrado nas necessidades temporais, para parceiros de que operam neste mercado. A procura por uma maior flexibilidade nos preços tem sido guiada, em parte, pela popularidade crescente do ambiente Microsoft Office 365 para o qual a Swivel é o único fornecedor aprovado/certificado de autentificação sem token.

Ao alinhar os seus termos contratuais e de pagamento com um modelo de negócio de serviços de gestão, a Swivel possibilitou aos parceiros lançarem a plataforma de autentificação da Swivel nas suas próprias ofertas de serviço de gestão sem incorrer nos riscos associados com contratos anuais de venda tradicionais. Oferecer contratos de prazo flexível e pagamentos mensais irá permitir-lhes transmitir essa flexibilidade para os clientes.

Ter uma flexibilidade mensal nos preços irá permitir às organizações adaptarem a sua utilização da plataforma Swivel ao longo do tempo para melhor satisfazerem as suas exigências, utilizando qualquer combinação de tecnologias de que necessitem para se adaptarem às suas políticas de segurança e regulamentações de conformidade. Ao contrário de outros fornecedores de autentificação sem token que oferecem modelos de serviços geridos, a Swivel proporciona às organizações a flexibilidade de escolher o que integrar em segurança - web, VPN, cloud ou computador - bem como a liberdade de escolher as ferramentas de comunicação utilizadas para gerir o processo: aplicação telemóvel, SMS/E-mail, telefone/voz ou web. Esta liberdade resolve uma variedade de dores de cabeças relativas à autentificação enfrentadas pelas organizações que estão a combater a necessidade de atualizar continuamente as suas políticas de segurança em linha com as exigências crescentes de novos dispositivos e aplicações que se ligam à rede da empresa.

A plataforma de autentificação da Swivel: Reduzido o ciclo de lançamento

A Swivel transformou os seus procedimentos de desenvolvimento e de lançamento de plataformas, adotando uma abordagem ágil, encurtando dramaticamente o tempo de aprovisionamento entre cada lançamento para apenas seis a oito semanas. A mudança irá simplificar o processo de atualização para a versão mais recente e acelerar a entrega de melhoramentos da plataforma aos clientes.

Em vez de gerir uma atualização substancial a cada seis ou nove meses, o ciclo de integração reduzido irá também permitir aos clientes da Swivel beneficiar de novas funcionalidades e de outros melhoramentos, conforme vão sendo desenvolvidos.

Como parte desta alteração, a versão 3.9.2 atualiza a forma como os dados de configuração são armazenados no servidor da Swivel, de modo a que quando a nova versão do software for utilizada, esta não substitua a configuração existente, mas que, em vez disso, leia e atualize automaticamente a configuração. Este desenvolvimento importante reduz muito o tempo, os recursos e os riscos associados à atualização da plataforma.

“Estas alterações evidenciam a intenção da Swivel de construir uma maior agilidade e flexibilidade tanto nas suas operações diárias como na sua plataforma de autentificação, de modo a conseguir acompanhar o mercado em desenvolvimento da autentificação baseada em dois fatores”, comenta Chris Russell, Vice-presidente de Tecnologia da Swivel. “Enquanto a Swivel continuar aumentar a sua base global de parceiros, é vital que continuemos a apoiar efetivamente o nosso canal. Levamos a sério as nossas responsabilidades de fabricante e moldámos a nossa oferta para satisfazer as necessidades dos nossos parceiros e clientes”.

A plataforma de autentificação da Swivel foi lançada pela primeira vez em 2003. É agora utilizada por grandes empresas mundiais, governos locais, pelo serviço nacional de saúde inglês e por centenas de empresas mais pequenas, em mais de 35 países para acederem remotamente às suas redes empresariais, VDI, web e aplicações baseadas na Cloud. Oferecer a mais vasta gama de opções de utilização, de acordo com a Gartner, os analistas líderes da indústria das Tecnologias da Informação, a plataforma Swivel oferece a escolha de diversos canais de autenticação como podem ser aplicação para telemóvel, SMS/E-Mail ou interativa resposta por voz quando é obrigatório ter dois fatores de autenticação.
