ZTE will distribute a projected 22,000 Aladdin eToken devices in 2008. An integral part of ZTE's solution, Aladdin eToken will enable secure remote access to ZTE's customers using two-factor authentication. Aladdin eToken allows users to gain access to protected corporate networks anytime, anywhere with a highly portable USB-based device. To date, more than 2,000 eToken devices have been distributed with the remainder to be deployed throughout the year.

ZTE is one example of the IDC-forecasted 14.7 percent growth in the Asia Pacific identity and access management market in the next three years, as predicted in its July 2007 article "Worldwide Identity and Access Management 2007-2011 Forecast and 2006 Vendor Shares" (#207609). Following this trend toward strong authentication for secure remote network access, ZTE chose eToken for its simple integration into existing solutions.

"We tested many different authentication options, and finally we selected Aladdin eToken to enhance our VPN access system," said Mr. Zhang Wei, project manager of ZTE. "Aladdin eToken provides a secure, manageable solution that is easily incorporated into our existing solutions and provides the highest level of authentication available to our customers."

"Aladdin is constantly striving to provide our customers with security solutions that improve their business, and we are proud to see Aladdin eToken provide ZTE with strong authentication for its global customers," said Warren Stein, General Manager of Aladdin Asia. "ZTE's decision to include Aladdin eToken in their security solutions is yet another example of the fast-growing trend toward strong authentication for secure remote access among large organizations."
