G4S choose the Evidian’s SSO solution.
Our business sector is very competitive, and G4S has high middle management turnover. It became crucial to reinforce access security in order to avoid information leakage to our competitors.
Moreover, we had to comply with the group's security recommendations and specifications, which are generally stricter than the security requirements in France."
Evidian's Enterprise SSO offer has been chosen, which brings in extended SSO functions that work with all types of architectures such as LDAP directories and multi-directories, PCs that do not run Windows 2000 or XP, and thin client PCs. Moreover, it is a gateway to advanced functions such as identity management and provisioning. The SSO solution works with a smart card system, with
deployment of a PKI.
The Evidian solution enabled us to meet our group's security requirements within a very short time.
The reasons: it is a modular, simple and all-in-one offer. Security is ensured and audited within our information system.
