CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS[R] Selects Arcot for Online Authentication.

Hosted Solution's Integration with calREDD[R] System, Ease of Use Cited

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Arcot Systems, Inc., today announced that the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS[R] (C.A.R.) has chosen Arcot's cloud-based A-OK strong-authentication service to provide highly secure access to the California Real Estate Dynamic Data (calREDD[R]) Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for member REALTORS[R] in six major MLS associations. The service protects approximately 5,000 individual REALTORS[R] from 15 regional offices, primarily in central and northern California.

With advanced technology that goes beyond current MLS systems, calREDD[R] creates one database for all California real property. calREDD[R] is a service of California MLS Inc. (CALMLS), a subsidiary of C.A.R.

"After careful evaluation, we felt Arcot's A-OK solution offered the best fit in terms of ease of use for our members, the ability to integrate calREDD[R] with a hosted solution, and the overall features and cost-effectiveness we gained from the A-OK platform," said Mike Silvas, CALMLS chairman.

"Other big plusses for us were the A-OK solution's flexibility to accommodate rapid expansion among other C.A.R. members. A hosted solution also meant we didn't have to build our own data center. Arcot had us up and running in no time," he added.
