Codebench, RedCloud Announce Integration
Codebench, Inc., a provider of TWIC / HSPD-12 / FIPS-201 authentication and physical access control middleware, announced recently that it has integrated its PIVCheck Plus software with RedCloud Security Management Software. RedCloud was formerly known as PlaSec.
This marks the first integration of PIVCheck Plus software with a physical and virtual network appliance access control platform. RedCloud Virtual is the industry's first VMware Ready access control solution purpose-built for organizations that have migrated their IT infrastructure to a secure, private cloud environment. RedCloud Enterprise offers all the software features found in RedCloud Virtual, including PIVCheck Plus integration, and is packaged in a dedicated, all-in-one, industrial grade network appliance.
Both RedCloud Systems are 100 percent web-based and leverage an open architecture, plus they offer integrated identity management and video surveillance.
The integration was accomplished by Codebench by utilizing RedCloud's REST API, one of many IT collaboration tools available from RedCloud.
"Our integration with RedCloud provides customers with an integrated logical and physical access control solution that is HSPD-12 compliant," said Geri B. Castaldo, CEO of Codebench. "Integrating our PIVCheck software suite with RedCloud Security Management Software provides our customers with a choice as to which solution is most appropriate for their needs and provides them with a true IP-based solution."
Codebench's PIVCheck software suite is an end-to-end card validation, authentication, and registration solution for HSPD-12 compliance. Pairing the PIVCheck solution with RedCloud Security Management Software will allow federal government users and other organizations that need to comply with HSPD-12 requirements to easily validate FIPS- 201 compliant credentials in real-time and to continue that validation on an ongoing, user-defined schedule. In addition, it will allow entities to easily register PIV, TWIC, CAC or FRAC cards without having to do additional data entry on each cardholder.
"By integrating with PIVCheck Plus software from Codebench, we are able to offer our government customers a FIPS-201 and HSPD-12 compliant solution that can validate credentials and check against the various hot lists," said Terry Neely, president of RedCloud. "We're excited to be working with Codebench and be recognized as one of its trusted physical access control system partners."Codebench's PIVCheck software suite provides a seamless transition to HSPD-12 or FIPS-201 compliance by leveraging a facility's physical access control system for card validation, authentication, and registration.
