Datakey, Inc., a Minneapolis-based provider of information security systems, has received an order for a customized SignaSURE smart card-based system from a top five ranked U.S. bank. The new SignaSURE smart card system is intended to replace an existing system used for authentication of large value financial transactions. It includes an undisclosed number of client seats and a Datakey Security Control Center that initializes and customizes the client smart cards. All system elements are expected to ship in the first quarter of 1999.
“This is a very important competitive award for us,” said Carl Boecher, president and CEO of Datakey. “It shows the confidence the banking community has placed in our company and our SignaSURE product line. In addition, the resultant new custom product has direct applicability to other financial services firms who need the same high-security authentication capability that we now can provide.”
