Gemalto Unveils Industry’s First Cloud Access Management and Single Sign on Solution Enhanced for Smart Card Users

Jaa

Gemalto today announced the launch of an industry-first solution that will enable organizations which have invested in Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) security applications to leverage their investment without compromise on security or user experience when moving to the cloud. Through SafeNet Trusted Access, security-sensitive organizations whose employees log into enterprise resources with smart cards can use those same credentials to access cloud and web-based apps and benefit from single sign on (SSO).

Up until now, PKI hardware’s limitations meant companies could not adopt cloud and mobility projects without having to completely ‘rip and replace’ their current security framework. As a result, companies have been using smart cards and tokens to allow their employees to authenticate themselves while accessing corporate resources, but this was limited to activity within the enterprise perimeter. In addition, companies that use PKI credentials for email encryption and digital signing have also been limited to on-premises environments.

This new offer from Gemalto enables employees and organizations to benefit from SSO and high assurance PKI-based authentication, making it easier and more secure to access cloud and web-based apps and resources from wherever and on any device. Employees will no longer have to re-authenticate each time they access a resource with their smart card, while allowing enterprises to maintain high assurance security when needed. In addition, Gemalto will also help users access PKI applications from new environments, including mobile devices and virtualized desktops environments (VDI) and use PKI credentials for security applications including digital signing and email encryption.

“As much as cloud computing is recognized for its many benefits, the reality for most firms is that they will be operating in a hybrid environment for years to come,” said Garrett Bekker, Principal Security Analyst at 451 Research. “By enabling firms to extend their existing PKI investments to cloud and web-based resources, SafeNet Trusted Access can help firms build on their existing security frameworks to accelerate their digital and cloud transformation.”

Gemalto is offering different ways to build on current PKI investments, so companies embrace digital transformation without compromising on security.

  • Enabling cloud transformation: Organizations can extend PKI credentials to access policies, allowing CISOs to maintain security in the cloud by triggering the use of step up PKI-based authentication to cloud and web-based apps when needed
  • Facilitating mobility:
    Employees can access enterprise applications within virtual environments with their PKI credentials. This means that employees and consultants will be able to perform all the same actions they would normally perform with a smart card, with a virtual smart card.

“With the rapid development and adoption of cloud services, many organizations are struggling to balance their digital transformation projects with the need to keep themselves secure,” said Francois Lasnier, senior vice president of Identity and Access Management at Gemalto. “For organizations that are using high assurance PKI deployments for an added layer of security, our SafeNet Trusted Access solution makes it easier for them to expand into the cloud, virtual desktop infrastructures and mobile devices easily and securely, without putting themselves at risk. Our solution enables companies to allow their employees to operate as normal, while introducing them to the benefits of cloud, mobility and SSO.”

Elliott Statement on Proposal to Uniper21.3.2019 10:00:00 EETTiedote

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited (“Elliott”) has written to the Management Board of Uniper SE (the “Company” or “Uniper”), to formally request the convocation of an Extraordinary General Meeting (“EGM”) with the express purpose of instructing management to prepare a lawful domination agreement with the Company’s largest shareholder Fortum Oyj (“Fortum”). Elliott believes the thus far ill-defined and ambiguous nature of the relationship between Uniper and Fortum has created an unsatisfactory and unsustainable dynamic, which is detrimental to Uniper. In Elliott’s view, the status quo – operational underperformance and pervasive uncertainty – if sustained, will risk further undermining the Company’s fundamental value. Elliott believes a timely shareholder vote to advance a domination agreement may resolve the prolonged uncertainty at Uniper and clarify the relationship between the Company and Fortum, such that value can be created for the Company and all stakeholders. Elliott believes that F

Key UK SEP Patent Win for TQ Delta20.3.2019 22:03:00 EETTiedote

TQ Delta LLC, a technology development and licensing firm, secured a judgment on March 18 by the High Court of Justice of England and Wales immediately enjoining ZyXEL Communications UK Ltd and its Danish parent company, ZyXEL Communications A/S, from further infringement of TQ Delta's European Patent (UK) 1 453 268. TQ Delta's patent relates to Digital Subscriber Line ("DSL") technology. In an earlier judgment, handed down on March 12, the Court found that the patent was valid and essential to the operation of ADSL2 and VDSL2. In that judgment, the Court held that the ZyXEL defendants have infringed and continue to infringe the patent. The Court also found that a second patent would have also been essential and infringed but was invalid. In its judgment earlier this week, the Court also found that the ZyXEL defendants were "holding out" against taking a licence to TQ Delta's portfolio of patents relating to DSL. It granted an immediate injunction and costs against the ZyXEL defendants
