Gemalto announced that its Protiva security solutions are now integrated with IBM’s single sign-on solution to provide customers with a secure and convenient identity and access management solution.
The Gemalto smart card solution is certified for use with IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-business and IBM Tivoli Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On. A range of Gemalto strong authentication devices are now available and certified under the IBM Ready for Tivoli program, including Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards for U.S. federal government agencies, PIV-I for U.S. government contractors, and .NET smart cards and USB devices for enterprises in the private sector.
Smart cards or USB devices for two-factor authentication are increasingly a customer requirement, such as in the government market as a result of the HSPD-12 program, critical infrastructure programs concerned with cyber security, and other industries facing increasing privacy and security regulations such as health care and financial services.
Gemalto will be demonstrating its Protiva two-factor authentication solutions for Tivoli in booth E112 at IBM Pulse, Feb. 21 to 24 in Las Vegas.
