Solutions for financial services
The financial services industry is under constant pressure to provide results in an increasingly regulated environment. This makes it critical to control access to IT resources: whether in trading rooms or in branch offices, employee access to customer and financial data must be secured and optimized. Traders and branch employees need fast access to ensure business efficiency and prompt customer service. But they should only access the resources they need and are allowed to use.
Evidian's identity and access management (IAM)
solutions make it easy to control, facilitate and audit access to all your resources - including legacy financial applications.
- In trading rooms, traders or floor assistants authenticate just once to access their cluster of PCs and perform their daily actions according to the security policy in place. Evidian has worked with major investment banks to ensure that its IAM solutions fully offer the functionalities required to comply with the exacting procedures of trading floors. Highly secured strong authentication devices have been tested and implemented.
- In local branches, employees access either their own PC or a kiosk to quickly answer customer requests, providing better service. Fast user switching means that a colleague will not have to wait for session reboot. As a result, shared workstations are available for service and all accesses can be audited.
Evidian's IAM solutions ensure that access to applications is traceable to individual employees. Single sign-on
and advanced delegation functions eliminate anonymous access to accounts as employees do not share their passwords anymore. Strong authentication support can further ascertain employee identity via smart card or biometrics. And in case they forget their login details, self-service password request (SSPR) still allows them to work quickly.
