Gemalto Technology Enables Authentication Devices for SYSteam

CeBIT, March 4, 2008–Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, today announces the first deployment of Allynis Device Administration Service (DAS) in Europe. Smartjac, a Gemalto distributor in Sweden, has fully equipped SYSteam, a leading IT supplier in the Nordic region, with the Gemalto Web-hosted service for issuing and administering strong authentication devices. Gemalto’s innovation enables SYSteam IT administrators to perform day-to-day management operations for .NET devices in a secure and convenient way. Administrators can perform device deployment and management through a Web interface and can easily administrate PIN codes and administrative keys of strong authentication devices.

This turnkey solution increases security and simplifies device management processes. IT organizations have full control over security as end-user administrative keys are diversified through the DAS controller, under sole control of the IT administrator. Via an online portal, end-users can handle PIN update and remote unlocking whenever they block their authentication card or forget their code. Furthermore, they can easily and securely import their own digital certificates hence facilitating rollout.

The hassle-free can be quickly implemented by companies. It includes both an easy-to-use administration portal for IT teams and an intuitive end-user portal with self-service capabilities. It does not require any purchase of server, hardware investment, setup and maintenance costs, nor training budget.

Gemalto provides a comprehensive service from the device management platform to the software maintenance. Gemalto commits itself to continuous 24 x 7 availability of the service through a rigorous service level agreement (SLA).

The service is compatible with Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox web browsers and runs on Windows 2000, XP and Vista operating systems.

“Device administration can sometimes be complex. In today’s highly connected world, we need flexible, compliant and secure systems. To our complete satisfaction, Gemalto provided us with a user-friendly and transparent service”, commented Jonas Westerdahl, Security Specialist, SYSteam i Halland AB.

“Gemalto thinks above and beyond the solution itself and offers full services. Its service model allows companies requiring strong security and valuing easy-to-use solutions to focus on their core business. Whatever small or big they are, they can rely on Gemalto know-how and digital security experience in developing management services of strong authentication devices”, added Nipa Raunio, Managing Director, SmartJac.
