ActivIdentity Corp., a provider of strong authentication and credential management, announced that Dutch bank SNS Bank has selected ActivIdentity’s solution to secure access to the bank’s corporate facilities and IT resources.
Fifty percent of the bank’s workforce requires access to the institution’s trading system, compelling the use of strong authentication and audit trail structure to trace individual online transactions as per national regulations. Compliance is important for the bank as regulators have introduced new guidelines reflecting increased use of online trading, requiring every employee accessing the trading system to have a unique and secure sign-in.
SNS Bank also decided to deploy a secure ID badge to access corporate facilities and IT resources, combining logical and physical access into a single smart card. ActivIdentity was selected by the bank and their value added reseller Avensus who implemented the solution at SNS Bank.
ActivIdentity’s Smart Employee ID was seen as the best fit and the institution also deployed ActivID Credential Management System for smart card, ActivClient, 4TRESS and authenticators like smart cards and tokens.
