accells Strengthens Team
Increasing concerns about identify theft and compromised access to business data and systems have heightened businesses interests in access security and strong authentication. accells technologies, a provider of cloud-based mobile identity services allows customers to use their smartphones for fast, easy and secure identification and access to any service across any channel at any time.
With new and now patented service capabilities, accells is expanding its team to reach the broad range of partners and companies, large and small, who can use its solutions to build access and transaction security, while boosting confidence.
Covering remote access, cloud service access and the protection of existing single sign-on (SSO) mechanisms, accells secures standard login and SSO use cases. In addition, accells enables easy identification and secure authentication, transaction verification, signing and approval workflows, secure data capture and feedback as well as secure collaboration and sharing flows.
accells is also in the process of strengthening its management team. The cloud-based Mobile Identity service provider named Igal Chemerinski, formerly a senior sales leader in several startups, as VP of Channel and Partner Sales and Shakil Haroon, formerly GM North America for Spring Wireless (News - Alert), as VP of Sales and GM North America.
“We believe that Igal’s substantial capabilities in sales and e-commerce, and Shakil’s experience in building the North American market for startups add significant value to our executive team,” said Eckhard Ortwein, chief executive officer at accells said in a statement.
“We look forward to working with Igal and Shakil to continue to increase our market reach and elevate the impact for our disruptive approach in the authentication market,” Ortwein added.
In addition, accells mobile identify service can help to break the vicious cycle of identity theft.
Garner’s prediction indicates that the personal cloud will soon replace the personal computer and the preference for cloud computing is going to further complicate security issues because each cloud service is a directly exposed gateway for any attacker and they do not easily integrate into existing enterprise security. And with this, identity theft is becoming even more attractive and even easier.
To handle this well, businesses are pressured to implement a multi-factor authentication and secure solution that can support all interaction channels. Mobile phone-based identification and authentication are becoming increasingly necessary. accells specializes in Mobile Identity solutions and provides fast, easy and secure identification and access with just mobile phone. The company recently announced a 30-day free trial service for business customers.
