OTTAWA and LONDON -- CRYPTOCard (, the leading authentication technology developer for heterogeneous environments, today announced that Scorpion Software, a provider of premium security solutions for SMBs has released AuthAnvil, a strong two-factor authentication solution developed using CRYPTOCard's AuthEngine SDK and designed specifically to run on Microsoft's Small Business Server (SBS) and Windows Server product lines.

AuthAnvil enhances online trust and enables secure remote access to protected information assets by offering the ability to reliably prove user identities through the use of strong authentication. Utilizing CRYPTOCard's event-based KT-1 keychain tokens that generate new one-time passwords (OTP) for every login attempt, AuthAnvil makes it simple and cost-effective for small businesses to eliminate the risks associated with traditional static passwords.

AuthAnvil increases security by preventing reuse, sharing, or theft of passwords and thwarts phishing and other attacks targeting passwords. With AuthAnvil, users never need to remember passwords, reducing help desk calls and related costs. AuthAnvil also increases user satisfaction and productivity by removing the need to manage password changes, and makes it simple for SMBs to comply with new security legislation and privacy laws such as SOX and HSPD-12.

"Scorpion Software was able to demonstrate the power and flexibility of AuthEngine by developing in a matter of a few weeks, an effective and easy to use authentication solution that meets the needs of SMBs," said Bill LaHam, Vice President of Products and Business Development at CRYPTOCard. "AuthAnvil is an incredible solution - its tight integration with Small Business Server and well conceived management interface will have most SMBs authenticating in a matter of minutes."
