Security Dynamics introduces SecurID Key FOB SecurID two-factor authentication now available in new and convenient form.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 18, 1995--Security Dynamics Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SDTI), a leading provider of network and computer security solutions, today announced the SecurID(R) Key Fob, a new form factor of the Company's industry standard SecurID technology.

The SecurID Key Fob, the third addition to the Company's family of easy-to-use, highly secure super smart card tokens, can be conveniently attached to a key chain.

The SecurID Key Fob is a lightweight and water-resistant token that is well suited for a variety of environments beyond the corporate office. Network users are today accessing enterprise networks from virtually any remote location imaginable, whether it be from home, a hotel room, an airport terminal or even outdoor locations.

"Security Dynamics strives to fulfill customer requests for convenient, highly secure access control products," said James M. Geary, vice president of marketing at Security Dynamics. "Whether attached to a user's key ring or hanging from the belt of a telephone-pole lineman, the Key Fob's size and rugged exterior makes it an ideal tool for extending SecurID user authentication."

As with all SecurID tokens, the SecurID Key Fob works in conjunction with all of Security Dynamics' hardware and software access control products (ACE/Server(R) and Access Control Modules) to authenticate a user's identity, allowing network access to authorized users and locking out hackers and would-be trespassers.

The SecurID Key Fob displays a randomly generated access code which changes every 60 seconds. The SecurID Key Fob provides two-factor authentication: the user logs in by entering a secret personal identification number (PIN) followed by the current code displayed on the SecurID token. The logon process is one simple and quick step, and processing of user credentials is transparent to the user.

The SecurID Card and the SecurID PINPAD Card, Security Dynamics' popular access control tokens, will continue to be available, providing network managers and users with a choice of token form factors to secure their networks.

Pricing and Availability

The SecurID Key Fob is available immediately. Pricing for all SecurID tokens, including the SecurID Key Fob, starts at $34.
