Organisations and governments are transferring more of their operations and business processes ‘on-line’ in order to improve productivity, efficiency and service. This shift to ‘online’ services requires organisations to turn their attention to providing secure access to sensitive information assets to a wider audience.
Cyber identity management with formal identity registration, has become a business critical requirement in order for organisations to provide ‘online’ services and meet their obligations under Corporate Governance and Information Assurance. The focus is now on e-identity assurance i.e. assuring the identities of those people particiipating in their e-community, for example, the work force, partner organisations, customers and citizens.
Providing identity assurance in a legally compliant, efficient, cost-effective and manageable manner is a major challenge for organisations and market sectors that need to establish the e-identities of people.
Objectsoft’s web-based e-ntitle.® has been specifically designed to meet these exacting requirements and provide the ‘e-identity assurance’ that is essential to a safer online world.

Speaking at the Techonomy conference 2010, the CEO of the iconic Google outlined a future Internet where cyber identitiy will require "true transparency and no anonymity". The Techonomy conference attracts many distinguished people from around the globe who seek to use technology to solve the world's big problems.
This year Google's CEO, Eric Schmidt, explained that people need to get ready for major technology disruption. Whilst Schmidt attributed the data explosion to our new world of user-generated content, his insight on the subject of misuse of information for criminal and/or anti-social purposes is particularly noteworthy. Mr.Schmidt explains that "the only way to manage this [misuse of information] is true transparency and no anonymity."
Mr.Schmidt added that "In a world of asynchronous threats, it is too dangerous for there not to be some way to identify you. We need a [verified] name service for people. Governments will demand it."
"This is an inspiration to those innovation and R&D companies like Objectsoft - some of whom are now engaged in the new IdM challenge for almost a decade, to hear a technology leader like Eric Schmidt, advocate transparency around e-Identities in cyberspace" - Ian White, CEO at Objectsoft. Ian adds that "this emerging realisation about the scale of the problem and the potential to cause harm to Internet users, will encourage demand in the marketplace to implement technology solutions across the IdM spectrum. This will make the Internet a safer, more trustworthy place."
