Gemalto Launches Advanced Solution for Strong Authentication and Traceability on the Trading Floor

Traders are empowered by convenient and simultaneous strong authentication on multiple workstations

Cartes & IDentification, Paris, France, Dec 7, 2010–Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, today launched Protiva One4all, a strong authentication solution specifically designed for trading floors where workstations have multiple trading terminals. This new solution enables traders to log on to multiple terminals in one go with the highest security level ensured by two-factor authentication–the only solution on the market today that offers this unique combination of flexibility and security. Protiva One4all is already being piloted at a leading global financial institution.

Protiva One4all provides unprecedented security and traceability for banks and complete ease-of-use for traders. Users simply log on at their primary (‘master’) terminal using their PKI smart card and the exact same strong authentication is automatically replicated across each of their other (‘slave’) terminals. One action, multiple secure log-on’s, hundreds of valuable minutes saved over the course of an active trading day.

Crucially, all events, such as log-off, log-on, lock and unlock can be replicated across the slave terminals, which significantly increases efficiency in the workplace and provides banks and brokers with unrivalled transaction security and tracking. A transparent screenlock feature is also integrated into the solution, again providing peace of mind to both the firm and the individual traders.

“This innovative solution was designed in close collaboration with our customer to ensure that it meets the myriad security requirements that a fast-paced trading floor demands,” commented François Lasnier, Senior Vice President of Online Authentication at Gemalto. “Our strategy is to make cutting-edge security solutions much simpler for corporations and their employees, so intuitive and convenient that user adoption is virtually guaranteed.”

Protiva One4all is a stand-alone software designed to work with any PKI smart card and middleware. It can be effortlessly installed on workstations, with no impact on a bank’s existing IT systems. Full support and maintenance of the ProtiveOne4All solution are provided by Gemalto.

To date, over 20 million employees across the world securely access their company premises and sensitive data every day, thanks to the Gemalto’s Protiva family of strong authentication solutions.
