JOHANNESBURG - Altron Bytes Managed Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of JSE-listed technology company Altron, said it had partnered with Nasdaq listed MicroStrategy to provide a digital security access solution that addresses enterprise security threats.

MicroStrategy is a worldwide leader in enterprise analytics and mobile software.

“With technology accelerating the speed of change everywhere, we are on the brink of a massive shift in enterprise security and authentication," said  Altron BMS Managing Director Chad Baker.

"The threats to information security are real. It’s more important than ever for organisations to make information security a top priority, and this becomes even more pressing as business people increasingly embrace mobile and wearable devices in their work lives.”

Altron BMS and MicroStrategy said the digital identity solution, Usher, was unique to the South African market, replacing traditional forms of security with mobile identity badges allowing employees to open doors, unlock workstations, log into applications and websites, scan QR and barcodes, record locations and find other users.

"Usher helps enterprises to address some of the biggest challenges they face today, such as protecting against cyber threats, increasing efficiency, and delivering more value to customers,”MicroStrategy Incorporated CEO Michael J. Saylor said.
