Gemalto Collaborates With OpenTrust
As part of the collaboration, OpenTrust has incorporated Gemalto’s entire range of secure identity management solutions into its Smart Card Manager offering strong authentication solutions in particular.
According to Gemalto, the combined solution, which is already being deployed at joint customers of the two companies, enables users in the public and private sector to authenticate themselves and access their sensitive data through fixed or wireless networks, in a secure and convenient way.
The company has added that OpenTrust’s Smart Card Manager ensures flexible management of smart cards and certificates. Combined with Gemalto’s strong authentication solutions, it enables organizations to implement one-time password and certificate-based programs in a smooth manner. Since it is integrated prior to deployment, the new solution simplifies IT management and reduces total cost of ownership.
Cédric Collomb, senior vice-president of identity and access management at Gemalto, said: “This collaboration with OpenTrust brings about new opportunities for our customers, they can benefit from more innovative, convenient and easy to deploy solutions, and therefore optimize both data protection and access to IT resources while streamlining business processes.”
