Press Release 2013-10-14

Herndon, VA, October 14, 2013 – CertiPath, the trusted authority for high assurance identities, has announced the completion of its acquisition by two US-based strategic investors. The acquisition will provide increased stability and capital to expand CertiPath’s product and service offerings.  CertiPath will increase its focus on the usability of high assurance digital credentials in both logical and physical access. Presently CertiPath provides a unique set of solutions in the marketplace and is looking forward to offering an integrated suite of enabling products to its existing and future government, aerospace and defense, and financial services customers.

CertiPath’s Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Bridge services are used to establish trust in high assurance credential issuers globally.  CertiPath was instrumental in the creation of the first fully compliant HSPD-12 physical access control system (PACS) and the PIV-I standard.  In much the same way CertiPath certifies identities, it also certifies the access control systems that leverage them.  CertiPath provides the PACS testing lab for the General Services Administration’s Approved Products List.

Acquiring CertiPath is Crawley Hatfield Capital, a subsidiary of Crawley Ventures, (http://www.crawleyventures.com/) and SHiRT LLC.  SHiRT is a partnership between Shawn Hughes and Robert Trump.  Mr. Hughes is best known as the past CEO of Fortress Technologies which was acquired by General Dynamics in 2010.  As part of the transition, Mr. Hughes will assume the CEO role for CertiPath and Jeff Nigriny will serve as President and oversee day-to-day operations.

“My partners and I invest in only the most strategically positioned companies; we have spent significant time and effort studying the secure identity space,” said Shawn Hughes. “CertiPath is unparalleled in its market position, customer base, offerings and its team of subject matter experts.  We are excited to be part of one of the blue chip organizations serving this community and will be aggressive in meeting the urgent and increasingly complex needs of our customers.”

“As a bridge that connects the world, CertiPath has unique knowledge of the high assurance and commercial credentialing trust fabrics.  Our strategy is to productize this knowledge and make it available to all that rely on the trust fabric,” said Jeff Nigriny.  “With CertiPath’s new ownership, we are able to accelerate into a new growth strategy delivering products and services that make PKI relevant, easy to understand, and valuable to end users.  We are poised to help create a golden age for the usability of identities in electronic environments and PKI in general.”

Press Release 2013-04-09

CertiPath to debut CIV in a Box™ at ISC-West

 

Herndon, Va.  (April 9, 2013)CertiPath, the trusted authority for high assurance identities, today announced that it will introduce its CIV in a Box product at the International Security Conference (ISC) West in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 10-12 at booth #41013.

Commercial Identity Verification (CIV) leverages PIV technology to deliver a High Assurance Identity and Access Management credentialing capability to organizations interested in establishing an enterprise-wide trust environment where interoperability with external entities is not needed.  PIV and PIV-I are designed and deployed with inter-organizational trust as a primary driver, but until now there has not been an equivalent capability designed for local use.  CertiPath has long seen a need to close this credentialing gap and has designed CIV in a Box (CIViaB) specifically for this purpose.   

CertiPath has leveraged its decade of credential policy experience to create the first CIV issuance certificate policy to underpin the CIV card, the foundation of its CIViaB product.  CIViaBox provides the remedy for organizations that are seeking to converge physical and logical access, implement a single sign-on policy, manage visitor access rights, and eliminate the need of multiple passwords and/or cards per employee.  And, because CIV is based on PIV technology, it integrates seamlessly with existing PIV and PIV-I access control systems.

The solution is simple. CIViaBox provides everything an organization needs to start issuing CIV cards.  CertiPath manages the security policy, the organization manages the issuance.   Application and database server tiers are deployed on-site giving the organization total control over its infrastructure, credential issuance and use.  CertiPath has partnered with Intercede to deliver a fully-integrated, ready-to-use identity credentialing solution. The CertiPath certificate authority and MyID identity platforms come preconfigured, with a pre-integrated set of components to make it quick and easy for organizations to get started.

Jeff Nigriny, CEO of CertiPath, characterizes CIV as follows:  “We designed CIV to complement and augment existing PIV and PIV-I systems.  With this product’s launch, we believe the high assurance identity and access control suite is complete.  There can be no more excuses for failing to deploy a robust solution in any enterprise.”
