Gemalto announced that Swedbank is deploying the Protiva corporate solution across its organization, as well as in 60 savings banks in Sweden. The result will be a single identity management system designed to provide better access protection for networks and cloud resources.
Swedbank is a bank in Sweden and the Baltic countries, with 10 million private customers and nearly 700,000 corporate clients. The Protiva solution, part of Gemalto’s cloud computing security offer, will secure access to data networks and physical access for 20,000 employees, irrespective of country, branch or IT system. Implemented initially in Sweden, the solution is being deployed across the Baltic countries, as well as in a number of smaller representative offices internationally.
As part of a multi-year contract, Gemalto is providing Swedbank with the Protiva converged badge solution based on Public Key Infrastructure. The solution includes a server platform and software applications for a complete card management. It also includes deployment support and maintenance services, personalization and fulfillment services based out of Gemalto’s Stockholm offices, as well as advanced card renewal services.
In addition to providing Swedbanks’ employees with secure access to their company network remotely or on-site, the Protiva corporate badge will also enable email encryption and eSigning.
