Finance Case Studies

Bertrand Dunoyer de Segonzac, DSI. "Evidian’s Enterprise SSO solution is highly appreciated by the back-office services. When combined with biometrics, it very quickly becomes part of everyday life. Those who do not yet have it are demanding the solution." 

Alain Bernard, Chief Security Officer. "Trading room security is strategic for Natixis. Evidian’s solution reinforces access to our traders’ clusters of PCs via biometrics. This strengthens user authentication in a very critical environment. Evidian solution fits very well in our demanding environment, with its stringent operational processes and requirements. We have strongly reduced access risks while improving trader productivity."

Peter Knight, Sales Manager. "Business continuity and disaster recovery are a major concern for our Locus banking application deployed in numerous Credit Unions around Ireland and the UK. We have found with SafeKit a simple and robust solution for high availability and synchronous replication between two servers with no data loss. With this software solution, we are not dependent on a specific and costly hardware clustering solution. It is a perfect tool to provide a software high availability option to an application of a software vendor."

By rationalizing access to sensitive data and managing accesses and identities in a structured and coherent way, banks and financial companies can fundamentally reduce their exposure to operational risks.

Healthcare Case Studies

Claude Salomon, Head of Information System. "The Evidian solution brings us substantial benefits on a daily basis. Security is ensured with strong authentication and name-based access to kiosk sessions. Clinicians have quickly adopted the system. Their work is made easier by the roaming session and SSO access to applications, so they have more time to dedicate to their patients. "

Herbert Stangl, Deputy IT Manager. "Enterprise SSO lets all our clinical staff get at their data easily and securely, and the legal requirements for traceability and auditability are ensured. A straightforward and fluid workflow for the clinical applications is now possible, with no restrictions.”

Tunde Ishola, Head of IM&T. "By simplifying access to essential applications, staff need only to log-in once to carry out essential daily activities, freeing up their time and resources to focus on patient care."

Steve Nicholson, IT services manager. "The Enterprise SSO solution has been so popular with staff that they are actually demanding to be signed up to it. It makes their jobs considerably easier and more efficient and also encourages a greater level of security when it comes to the use of healthcare applications. It will also make our job easier as we start to deal less and less with password related problems – we expect it to cut IT helpdesk calls by around 70%."

Marc Pellas, CEO. "SafeKit perfectly meets the needs of a software vendor. Its main advantage is that it brings in high availability through a software option that is added to our own multi-platform software suite. This way, we are not dependent on a specific and costly hardware clustering solution that is not only difficult to install and maintain, but also differs according to client environments. With SafeKit, our firefighter call centers are run with an integrated software clustering solution, which is the same for all our customers, is user friendly and for which we master the installation up to after-sales support."

Sint Franciscus hospital (Rotterdam, NL) chose Evidian for its IAM and SSO solutions and knowhow of the healthcare sector to ensure that personal health data remains confidential. Evidian provides the various healthcare professionals with a personal and secure access to sensitive patient information.

Every day, thousands of your employees use dozens of applications. This means hundreds of support calls for lost or forgotten passwords. Clinicians must log in and out of programs one by one, wasting patient time. Incomplete or inaccurate audit trails result in poor information governance.

Governement Case Studies

Manfred Pospich, Head of Planning and Procurement. "Multiple login procedures with
different user name / password combinations often complicate the everyday work of state employees. With the SSO solution, Hessian state administration staff can use a single authentication procedure to access all computers and services for which they are authorized, without having to sign-on again each time. This also increases IT security."

José María Rubio Martín, Information Systems Security Manager. “We needed to reinforce information system access security. Out of all the solutions available on the market, we chose Evidian’s SSO because it is efficient and easy to integrate into an industrial environment. Moreover, Evidian makes it possible to naturally upgrade to identity management. Therefore, we think that deploying Evidian Enterprise SSO is a first step towards full identity and access management.”

Bruno Garguet-Duport, Director of Information Systems and Telecommunications. "The deployment went very smoothly. Evidian Enterprise SSO is so easy to install that we have set it up ourselves on our ten sites. Users are more than convinced: now, they would hardly accept working without the solution!"

Sheila Davidge, Head of IM&T. "Evidian’s SSO solution exceeds the CoCo requirements for password strength, and saves users’ time…It gives us a single, consistent security policy that is easy to apply, with minimal support overhead. We wanted to ensure we were compliant with CoCo ahead of the Government’s original deadline. Evidian’s SSO solution exceeds the CoCo requirements for password strength, and saves users’ time by negating the need to sign in to multiple applications. It also cuts the number of helpdesk calls from users for resets of forgotten passwords. It gives us a single, consistent security policy that’s easy to apply, with minimal support overhead."

Alexandre Barth, Systems administrator. "Our production team implemented the SafeKit solution without any difficulty on 14 Windows and Linux clusters. Our critical activity is thus secure, with high-availability and load balancing functions. The advantages of this product are easy deployment and administration of clusters, on the one hand, and uniformity of the solution in the face of heterogeneous operating systems, on the other hand."

Telecom Case Studies

Davy Roland Lago, Project manager. "We are very satisfied with Evidian Enterprise SSO. Users easily adopt card-based single sign-on. Our needs have been met far beyond our expectations as we have discovered some other very useful functions such as delegation.”

Babacar Kebe, Project Manager. "Feedback is positive; no problems were observed during deployment in the field. Evidian's solution will allow us to define and control our entire access security policy from a single location.”

After a single authentication, P&T Luxembourg’s customers easily access to all their applications on virtual desktops. The selection criterion of the Evidian solution has been: no modification of application, delegation, security, audit and fast deployment.

Enterprise Case Studies

Vincent Rossetto, Information security and protection department. "Evidian’s solution is easy to manage because it is centralized and based on our directory. It is not intrusive and therefore economic in terms of support and maintenance. The users appreciate the new ease of use. They only have to let themselves be guided."

It is not intrusive and therefore economic in terms of support and maintenance. The users appreciate the new ease of use. They only have to let themselves be guided."

Vincent Girardin, IT Manager. "For us, Evidian's identity and access management software is one of the rare solutions on the market that offer all the elements required to build a secure management system in terms of application access. This is why we chose Evidian's SSO solution; we share the opinion of Gartner Group's analysts on this issue."

Stéphane Guilmin, Project manager. "Automation of line 1 of the Paris subway is a major project for RATP, requiring a centralized command room (CCR) designed to resist IT failures. With SafeKit, we have three distinct advantages to meet this need. Firstly, SafeKit is a purely software solution that does not demand the use of shared disks on a SAN and network boxes for load balancing. It is very simple to separate our servers into separate machine rooms. Moreover, this clustering solution is homogeneous for our Windows and Unix platforms. SafeKit provides the three functions that we needed: load balancing between servers, automatic failover after an incident and real time data replication."

Tony Myers, Director of Business Development. "By developing applications for air traffic control, Copperchase is in one of the most critical business activities. We absolutely need our applications to be available all the time. We have found with SafeKit a simple and complete clustering solution for our needs. This software combines in a single product load balancingreal time data replication with no data loss and automatic failover. This is why, since 2004, Copperchase deploys SafeKit for air traffic control in airports in the UK and the 30 countries where we are present."
