A UniToken is a device that plugs into a USB port on your computer. It is designed to hold a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) security certificate, which is an electronic certificate that uniquely identifies individuals to computers. A rough analogy would be that a UniToken is part of an electronic Identification Card that is completed or enabled when you enter your password.

Every Business has Information Security Problems
The rapid growth and widespread use of electronic data processing and electronic business conducted through the Internet, along with numerous occurrences of international terrorism, fueled the need for better methods of protecting the computers and the information they store, process and transmit.
Governments, military, corporations, financial institutions, hospitals, and private businesses amass a great deal of confidential information about their employees, customers, products, research, and financial status.
Passwords, the primary tool for user authentication, can be easily stolen, lost, shared or cracked. Due to the need to manage multiple passwords and to ensure the effectiveness of passwords used, organizations have adopted stringent password policies. This has translated into more complex passwords and consequently, made them more difficult to remember. To cope, users are writing their passwords down; compromising the security they were meant to improve.
In today’s business world, security in general - and user authentication in particular are critical components in enabling business and protecting sensitive corporate information. Protecting confidential information is a business requirement, and in many cases also an ethical and legal requirement.
