Financial companies are under constant pressure to produce results in an increasingly regulated environment. It is therefore essential to control access to digital resources, while ensuring that these resources contribute effectively to the company’s results.
Efficiency, regulatory compliance and risk reduction: the three parameters which together should inform operational, legal and technical decisions.
Evidian’s identity and access management (IAM) ensures efficient and customised access to the data of a financial establishment. Each entry into this system can be easily audited, in accordance with legal and regulatory requirements.
So, whether in trading rooms or in branches, access to customer and employee financial data is secure and optimised. To provide the best possible service to clients, traders and branch employees can obtain the rapid access they need. They only have access to the resources they need and which they are authorised to use.
Evidian solutions are designed to improve the productivity of your organisation. A single authentication can now replace all the passwords of your branch employees. And if they change branch or role, their access rights are automatically modified, so they can get to work straight away.
You may wish to use strong authentication with cards or biometrics in your branches. But how can you ensure that employee productivity and the helpdesk workload don’t suffer? Evidian solutions allow a “zero password” policy to be applied in full security. Employees can access their resources in full security, wherever they are located.
Evidian solutions keep a record of all access attempts and decisions about access rights to resources. This information is accessible in a single location for your auditors, and can be used to rapidly identify the cause of any incidents. It therefore facilitates compliance with the regulatory constraints of trackability.
Your financial suppliers make their services available on the internet. But if several of your employees use the same access codes, how can an action be linked to the person who carried it out? Evidian allows you to eliminate shared passwords, making responsibility for financial actions clear.
Evidian solutions allow you to assess your exposure to operational risks, and to rapidly implement corrective action based on audit recommendations. They are ideal for the operational risk management units advocated by Basel III and Solvency II, as they allow numerous loss-making incidents to be documented.
You may wish to strengthen access control in your trading rooms in order to ensure that the authors of unauthorised actions can be identified. In practice, how can this control be made compatible with trading procedures? Designed with input from finance professionals, Evidian solutions offer authentication for clusters of workstations, while ensuring delegation and trackability.
Traders at SOCIETE GENERALE use the Evidian Enterprise SSO solution. A trader has several concurrent workstations (about twenty). A card inserted in a master station handles all access on all workstations of its cluster. If another workstation is available, it can be dynamically added to the cluster.
Banca Comerciala Romana (BCR), member of the Erste group, is a universal bank serving private customers and companies. BCR is the largest provider of financial services in Romania, with asset management valued at more than € 16 billion.

The LE FOYER Group, created in 1922, is the largest institutional investor on the French stock exchange.
Evidian Enterprise SSO and Evidian Web Access Manager have been deployed to authenticate and secure access to corporate applications for both employees and partners.
The LE FOYER Group decided in June 2013 to implement the IAM 9 Suite solution to manage the lifecycle of its users and better respond to business requirements regarding the management of user rights.
Evidian Enterprise SSO has been implemented by the Banque Centrale des Etats d’Afrique de l’Ouest (BCEAO) in Dakar (Western Africa Central Bank) for more than 2,500 users using an LDAP infrastructure, enabling the financial organization to manage access in a transparent manner. Enterprise SSO comes with delegation modules, strong authentication with “Store on Card” biometrics, and Precise Biometrics, Audit and Reporting hardware.
