LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 26, 2003–CoreStreet, a leading provider of authorization and validation technology, today became the first company to announce that it supports the Department of Defense’s (DoD) new Common Access Card (CAC) and that its software supports physical and logical access in connected and disconnected environments. CoreStreet also announced it supports the MiFare and RFID wireless technology standards, two technologies suited for CAC. By supporting the CAC, the DoD is now empowered to easily and cost-effectively provide ubiquitous security in real time.
The DoD began issuing the CACs in October 2002 and over the next several years it will become the standard ID card for up to 20 million active duty military personnel, DoD civilian employees and family members. The CACs will enable authorized card holders to access government buildings and computer networks in real time. With the help of CoreStreet’s technology, organizations can authorize or revoke security privileges for virtually any type of physical or information access.
“Supporting the Department of Defense’s Common Access Card reflects CoreStreet’s continued commitment to providing the industry’s most secure, highly scalable and cost-effective validation and authorization solutions,” said Phil Libin, president of CoreStreet. “By using CoreStreet’s technology, organizations can increase security immediately, in real time, by granting and revoking individual’s access to connected environments such as buildings or computer networks, or disconnected environments such as cargo containers located on barges. If a CAC was expired, stolen or lost, the card’s privileges can be revoked immediately and then reissued easily if the card is later located.”
At the ISC Expo, CoreStreet will be demonstrating a physical access system that will grant or revoke multiple privileges using contact and contactless smart cards – even without network connectivity. To schedule a demo while at ISC, please contact Bill Keeler or Chuck Tanowitz at Schwartz Communications by calling 781 684-0770.
Bridging the security gap between physical and information security, CoreStreet provides the only secure authorization and validation technology for connected and disconnected environments. Combining security, safety and convenience, CoreStreet enables organizations to grant or revoke an individual’s access rights to a building, computer network, laptop or wireless devices immediately in real time. The company, headquartered in the Boston area, holds 14 patents with more pending. For more information, visit www.CoreStreet.com.
