 accepted as the ultimate device for securing your networks and e-Business
 needs.  It offers a fully portable and cost-effective means to authenticate
 users and to digitally sign sensitive business transactions.

 functionality as its underlying technology. It offers both 2-factor

 securely store private keys and digital certificates.  Both the eToken
 PRO and the eToken R2 offer enhanced physical features in their newly designed
 one-piece plastic housing, providing an unmatched tamper-evident and
 water-resistant container.
     Support for open, non-proprietary security standards such as Microsoft
 CAPI and PKCS11, makes integration with security applications quick and
 smooth.  eToken's innovative Enterprise solution set also offers an
 out-of-the-box plug-and-play connectivity for various security clients.
