Gemalto and OpenTrust Jointly Provide Integrated Enterprise Security Solution
Secures physical and logical access, while streamlining business and IT processes
Amsterdam, Oct 6, 2009 – Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, today announced it is working alongside OpenTrust, a leader in trust infrastructures for secure electronic transactions, to provide an integrated turnkey enterprise security solution. As part of the collaboration, OpenTrust has incorporated Gemalto’s entire range of secure identity management solutions into its Smart Card Manager offering, including the Gemalto Protiva .NET & Strong Authentication Solutions in particular.
The combined solution, which is already being deployed at joint customers of the two companies, enables users in the public and private sector to authenticate themselves and access their sensitive data through fixed or wireless networks, in a secure and convenient way.
OpenTrust’s Smart Card Manager ensures flexible management of smart cards and certificates. Combined with Gemalto’s strong authentication solutions, it enables organizations to implement one-time password and certificate-based programs in a smooth manner. Since it is integrated prior to deployment, the new solution simplifies IT management and reduces total cost of ownership.
“We are proud to team up with the world leader in digital security,” commented Olivier Guilbert, OpenTrust Chief Executive Officer. “This collaboration facilitates future deployments of security solutions within organizations and constitutes a concrete answer to an increasing market demand.”
“This collaboration with OpenTrust brings about new opportunities for our customers,” added Cédric Collomb, Senior Vice-President, Identity and Access Management at Gemalto. “They can benefit from more innovative, convenient and easy to deploy solutions, and therefore optimize both data protection and access to IT resources while streamlining business processes.”
