KUALA LUMPUR: Digital security firm Securemetric Bhd has launched its cloud-based cybersecurity platform Centagate Cloud (Centagate), marking the group’s foray into the recurring income business model.

Centagate, which is short for Centralised Authentication Gateway, manages user authentication and supports multi-factor and multi-channel authentication. It allows enterprises to establish a single authentication platform for enterprise-wide applications.

Speaking after the launch ceremony yesterday, Securemetric CEO Edward Law Seeh Key said the launch of Centagate comes as part of the group’s diversification plans to reduce dependence on project-driven revenue.

“Our target for 2020 is to have at least 1,000 companies signing up for Centagate each month, beginning February.

“In each company, we are targeting 50 users -- this includes free account users.

“Along the way, we will continue to add new features to Centagate,” said Law.

Upon hitting the maximum transaction limit per month, users can shift to the pay-per use model, which costs US$2 per user each month.

Law encouraged small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to sign up for a free Centagate account to defend enterprises’ electronic identity and access their enterprise applications via Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) + Single Sign-on (SSO) + Risk Scoring authentication platform.

“With such a cloud-native platform, we are able to meet high customer demand for a wide and flexible portfolio of solutions – from on-premise services to cloud-based services and managed security services – to combat the ever-increasing cyber threat.

“Centagate Cloud is the next example of how Securemetric continues to push cybersecurity innovation and make security intuitive, scalable and customer value-driven,” said Law, adding that Centegate will be rolled out to Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines.

At the same event, Securemetric also inked two Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs), with Joget Inc and Innov8tif Solutions Sdn Bhd, to establish and enhance collaborations to achieve cross-technology innovation and excellence.

The MoU with Joget creates the framework for both companies to work together and enable the Joget low-code platform for workflow and application development integration with digital signing capabilities provided by Securemetric Signing Cloud. With the partnership, Joget will focus on providing strong authentication support through Securemetric’s Centagate Cloud and Signing Cloud for workflow authorisation and approval across the platform.

Meanwhile, the second MoU with Innov8tif Solutions entails the integration of Securemetric’s Centagate Cloud and Signing Cloud with Innov8tif Solutions’ EMAS eKYC (Electronic Know-Your-Customer).

Innov8tif Solutions will enable the support of strong authentication through Securemetric’s Centagate Cloud for their application access control and offer it as optional feature to their customers.

The launch ceremony was graced by Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry Dr Ong Kian Ming, Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation COO Datuk Ng Wan Peng and CyberSecurity Malaysia CEO Datuk Dr Haji Amirudin Abdul Wahab.
