Below is our recent interview with Joakim Thorén, CEO and Founder at Versasec:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Versasec was founded 15 years ago in Stockholm, Sweden. Our mission from the start has been to help organizations manage their digital identities effectively.
The Versasec founders have a solid background in Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and credential management projects before starting Versasec. PKI projects used to be large, complex, and costly. The Versasec founders saw a need for a product to enable small and mid-size organizations to achieve the same high level of security with PKI-enabled hardware devices without the cost and complexity.
The goal has always been to deliver a Credential Management Solution that grows with the industry. The vSEC:CMS was developed for the small to the mid-size business tier. Larger businesses noticed the simplicity of deploying credentials using vSEC:CMS and all verticals adopted our product. From small companies with ten employees to companies with hundreds of thousands. Since then, vSEC:CMS has grown to manage FIDO2, and supports the largest list of PKI authenticators.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Versasec recently released Version 6.3 of vSEC:CMS, the award-winning credential management system. The new version of the credential management system software now includes management of FIDO with PKI credentials. Operators can additionally enroll their users’ FIDO credentials into the Gluu IdP. The combination of PKI with FIDO credential management will extend the security level across web services and cloud applications.

Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Versasec’s flagship product, vSEC:CMS, helps companies of all sizes easily deploy and manage virtual and physical smarts cards, tokens, RFID and other PKI credentials throughout their lifecycle. It streamlines all aspects of managing credentials by connecting to enterprise directories, certificate authorities, physical access control systems, email servers, log servers, biometric fingerprint readers, PIN mailers, and the list goes on, continually increasing.
Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: The full power of vSEC:CMS currently on-prem will soon be available as Software as a Service (SaaS). vSEC:CMS in the cloud can make implementing and maintaining strong multi-factor authentication effortless, without sacrificing the level of security.
