ViaTech Adds RSA Security Technology to VTCyberPak

RSA Data Security Inc. said that it
licensed its widely used BSAFE encryption engine for use in ViaTech Inc.’s VTCyberPak e-commerce
solution.


VTCyberPak incorporates try-and-buy capabilities, secure electronic purchases,
electronic distribution and automated electronic licensing in a single
product. Financial terms were not disclosed.


VTCyberPak said it uses RSA technology to provide secure communication between the
customer’s desktop and the clearinghouse in the purchasing phase. During
online transactions, credit card numbers and purchase information are
protected against eavesdropping.


BSAFE said it includes modules for popular security encryption techniques, such as
RSA, DES, RC2, RC4, and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), and also supports
digital signatures and certificates.


VTCyberPak is designed to allow software publishers to electronically package their software
and distribute products on the company Web site or via CDs. Software
publishers can also use VTCyberPak’s banner advertising capabilities to create
custom ads promoting new releases and upgrades.


Headquartered in Natick, MA, ViaTech provides products and professional
services in the electronic software distribution (ESD) and software license
management marketplaces.
