Car rental company plans on using eTokens to meet PCI standards
Aladdin has made a deal with one of the world’s largest car rental companies, and will be deploying thousands of Aladdin eToken USB authentication keys across many of its U.S. facilities next month. The eTokens will act as a solution to meet Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard compliance requirements.

Remote employees will also use the eTokens to securely access their VPN and logon to Web applications.
One of World’s Largest Rental Car Companies to Deploy Aladdin eToken to Meet Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard Compliance Requirements
CHICAGO, July 2–Aladdin Knowledge Systems (Nasdaq: ALDN), the leader in Software DRM, USB-based authentication, and secure Web gateways, today announced that one of the world’s largest rental car companies will be deploying thousands of Aladdin eToken USB authentication keys across many of its U.S. facilities next month. The selection of Aladdin eToken follows a lengthy evaluation process by the company, directly competing against numerous other solutions to meet Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard compliance requirements.
The company will also be deploying Aladdin’s industry-leading Token Management System (TMS) in order to efficiently and easily manage its rental car company employee credentials, as well as the complete token life cycle and its associated security applications – all from one centralized system. Large amounts of time spent managing passwords affects productivity at a company of its size. Thus, the deployment of Aladdin eToken and the TMS, as part of their larger PKI implementation, reduces IT expenses and allows employees of the rental car leader to gain robust, two-factor authentication using highly-durable, portable and convenient eToken PRO USB keys. Remote employees will use the eToken PRO keys to securely access their VPN and logon to important Web applications – helping to prevent sophisticated thieves from extracting credit and debit card information from unsecured databases.
“Aladdin continues to see ongoing momentum in eToken growth, especially among large, global companies concerned with tightening access to sensitive data and providing overall, far-reaching user authentication,” said Chen Arbel, vice president of engineering at Aladdin Knowledge Systems. “The Aladdin eToken deployment by one of world’s largest rental car companies reaffirms eToken’s ability to provide large-scale, reliable and easily-managed authentication solutions for thousands of employees, as their selection of eToken centered on Aladdin’s superior technology, service and support. Combined with our unique TMS solution, eToken shines as an industry leader in innovation and flexibility – standing as a powerful tool for meeting important PCI Compliance requirements.”
