Apr 05, 2001, 01:00 ET from Authentify, Inc.

    CHICAGO, April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Authentify, Inc., an emerging provider of
 Internet identity solutions, announced today it has joined the RSA Secured(TM)
 Partner Program to support interoperability between Authentify|Register
 service and RSA Keon(R) public key infrastructure (PKI) software.
     Authentify|Register delivers real-time authentication of a user's identity
 during the online registration process.  By synchronizing an Internet session
 with an automated telephone call to the end user, Authentify|Register provides
 an added level of security to the RSA Keon OneStep(TM) registration process by
 utilizing the world's most widely deployed infrastructure, the telephone
 network.  The Authentify|Register process is highly scalable and provides an
 enhanced audit trail for increased security.  The automation provided by
 Authentify|Register reduces costs and eliminates the risk of human error or
 omission.   Authentify's customizable application provides two-factor
 authentication and, integrated with RSA Keon OneStep, it allows an
 organization to quickly, securely and cost-effectively deploy digital
 certificates.
     "Authentify's automated authentication process fills a critical void in an
 organization's e-Security strategy," said Peter Tapling, president & CEO of
 Authentify.  "PKI requires strong registration processes and audit trails to
 be truly effective.  This requirement has traditionally made PKI deployments
 slow and expensive.  Authentify|Register will improve the quality of the audit
 trail while speeding deployment of certificates and reducing the cost of
 registration."
     "We are excited to welcome Authentify to the RSA Secured Partner Program,"
 said Robert Pritchard, vice president of corporate and partner development at
 RSA Security.  "Our strategic partner program is one of the most aggressive
 and successful in the industry, and we look forward to working with Authentify
 to help deliver secure e-business solutions to our customers."
     Mr. Tapling added, "Receiving this certification from RSA Security
 illustrates the versatility of our Authentify|Register service.  We look
 forward to working with RSA to accelerate the deployment of certificates
 within RSA Keon customer installations."
     Authentify is exhibiting at the RSA Conference in San Francisco
 April 8-12, 2001.  Thomas Swalla, senior systems engineer for Authentify, will
 be speaking April 12th on "Using the Telephone Network to Solve First-Time
 Registration Problems".  Authentify will be demonstrating the
 Authentify|Register technology at booth #104.
