The main challenge is having the right skill set to achieve superiority. With determination and perseverance, the company has grown and trained over 40 engineers and consultants with skills and knowledge.

Endless Possibilities

Aug-Tech actively collaborates with, institutions of higher learning in research field for possibilities in post-quantum algorithm design, optimistic of breaking frontier of what it was and what it could be in anticipation of possibility of the complexity of quantum computing breakthrough in securing communication. Aug-Tech is also exploring to collaborate in   areas such as Digital Time Stamping.

Aug-Tech extends services in Security including Application Programming Interface (API) development on Symmetric and Asymmetric key cryptographic for data encryption and file encryption/protection; and integration by any platform. Aug-Tech has vast experiences in Security Management and Key Management scalability and extendability via the single, centralized and unified platform that is based on high-performance industry grade Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Technology, enabling integration to third-party applications and simply suits into existing IT eco-system as well as future implementation. They render augmentation of security on top of existing system such as mobile support portal security with SSO (Aug-SSO) and SSL client authentication or AuthoGate; they also provide database security and regulatory or standard requirements such as PCI-DSS.

Extending services and strength in development and commissioning of PKI Key Management Centre (KMC), it encompasses authentication mechanism and certificate management with PKI transactions. It authorises the hosts to access services using SSL client authentication which is protected by attached network or embedded through general purpose Hardware Security Module (HSM) that protects the cryptographic infrastructure by safeguarding the cryptographic keys, thus ensuring seamless approach and cost effectiveness of implementing KMC.
