Over the next three years, Aladdin eToken will be provided to CIITE’s students wishing to access the CIITE Educational Portal. eToken will secure access to online academic services, including online libraries, video-based learning, and IT-related texts. CIITE’s initiative emphasizes the use of technology among the country’s current and upcoming generations of young professionals. In its ongoing mission to offer new and advanced e-Learning opportunities while implementing state-of-the-art information technology, CIITE officials selected the Aladdin eToken key after an exhaustive evaluation process lasting more than a year.
In addition to eToken, Aladdin has provided CIITE with an Aladdin Authentication Course — a comprehensive, academic-level DVD training course detailing authentication and security. This course will be used by students in CIITE-supported institutes and high-level educational organizations. Over the last year, the course was adopted to meet special CIITE requirements.
“With the digital identity of millions of students at stake and the need to secure vast online and networked educational resources, CIITE needs powerful, yet simple authentication tools for its program,” said Prof. S. Jain, Chief Security Officer at CIITE. “Aladdin eToken answers CIITE’s demand for completely portable, easily used smart card tokens for authenticating users. It is clear from our tests that eToken provides both the durability and reliability needed for our large, ongoing deployment of tokens throughout India.”
“We are honored to be chosen by CIITE as their nationwide authentication and security partner, providing high-quality security and educational materials that will benefit India’s IT students,” said Elinor Nissensohn, global vice president of sales and marketing at Aladdin Knowledge Systems. “Aladdin has recently established its Indian subsidiary in Mumbai and we are going to accelerate our growth and hiring in India to better support CIITE.”
Aladdin also announced today that it won a deal to supply its award- winning eSafe content security solution to educational institutes run by CIITE. CIITE selected eSafe to provide each institute’s location with powerful, integrated content security featuring proactive protection against known and unknown malicious code and spam, as well as non-productive and inappropriate content.
