Hi-Assurance Middleware

Hi-Assurance Manager- Is an enterprise based middleware that works with Cards and Tokens that require a greater level of security. The middleware solutions developed by 90meter utilize the Microsoft OS platform to enable smart cards and tokens natively in the OS, thus enabling Next Generation Crypto (NGC). Secure, logon, signing and encrypting communication are at the core of Hi-Assurance Manager. Just because our clients require greater security does not mean “make it difficult to use”.  Our intuitive designs, customer feedback and never ending pursuit of perfection helps create a secure middleware with easy to use design.  Our design maximizes security and performance and has enabled new specialized functionality for unique environments. Remote deployed individuals are also a concern with our Hi-Assurance Manager.  Time is a critical element in today’s communication environment and 90meter builds to minimize CPU cycles and footprint while allowing users to switch between domains and utilize different applets on one token or card for authentication, signing and encrypting. Additional features include the ability to:

  • Automatically set-up MS Outlook - Thunderbird on the desktops to sign and encrypt email
    • Limiting end user input, and help desk calls
  • Install a simple DLL into the OS and the token or smartcard becomes fully functional
  • Push minimal middleware applications to limit end user inadvertent corruption
  • Automatically publish Public certificates to the Global Address List (GAL).
    • Immediate secure communication with GAL colleagues
  • Implement and enforce the established enterprise PIN policy.
    • Change it if you need more/less security
  • Provide feedback to the user on the status of the card.

Inadvertent corruption by network administrators, and end users are costly to the whole enterprise.  90meter has developed a set of products that “work” without all the extras.  This solution is perfect for decentralized large scale deployments in which turn over can bring communication to a halt.  Encrypting email sometimes takes time, prevent un-needed support calls by letting the average user know his/her card is working with 90meter Hi-Assurance Manager.  Keep hardened security all the way to the workstation for logon, signing and encrypting.  Don’t let “alternative” solutions become the weakest link for attack. Hi-Assurance Manager can integrate seamlessly with Windows or Linux.   

• Utilize all three certificates (identity, sign, encrypt)
• Warn users prior to expiration of certificates on the card

The Hi-Assurance Manager software is made, tested, and supported with pride by US citizens in the USA.
