FREMONT, Calif., – ActivCard Corp., d/b/a ActivIdentity, a global leader in digital identity assurance, says it has signed new customer Nissan, part of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, the number four automotive group in the world. Nissan is deploying the Company’s integrated solution for employee badges to gain physical access to buildings and logical access to networks with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), Single Sign-On (SSO) and one-time use password (OTP) technology.
“Nissan was looking for an end-to-end security solution to manage user identities integrating smart card technology,” said Graham Orton, Manager, IT Infrastructure and Operations at Nissan Europe. “This complete and flexible solution enables us to remotely add new access to employee’s services, with a powerful role delegation to local entities in a scalable environment.
