ActivCard: Microsoft deploys Identity Management System

ActivCard announced this morning that Microsoft is deploying its Identity Management System to more than 25,000 employees in the initial deployment phase.

As a component of its overall corporate security strategy, all Microsoft employees, contractors, and authorized users will carry the ID smart card for physical access to on-campus facilities and remote access to Microsoft’s corporate network. The AIMS solution met Microsoft’s requirements for secure issuance and distribution of smart cards and user credentials in a large-scale enterprise – and performed under the demands of Microsoft’s rapid deployment schedule.

One analyst estimated the contract value at $500,000 which seems to work out to about $20/seat.
