STS Group selected PasswordBank for its compliance to standards, its comprehensive solution and its well-appreciated flexibility and responsiveness
(PRWEB) June 04, 2011
PasswordBank provides Federated Identity to cloud service providers (CSP) such as STS Group creating a greater level of security and compliance to access critical corporate information (documents and other confidential data of organizations).
In this case, PasswordBank provided to STS Group new methods of authentication such as digital certificates, OTP,... integrated in a web-based portal that their clients can use to securely access and sign documents.
PasswordBank, as an Identity Provider, authenticates the user and increases the level of security.
Another potential scenario is PasswordBank acting as identity broker. This means that the company sends the access request to a third party provider (Google, Salesforce.com, etc). This provides accepts the petition, and then PasswordBank grants the access to the client.
After a thorough selection process, STS Group selected PasswordBank for its compliance to standards, its comprehensive solution and its well-appreciated flexibility and responsiveness. PasswordBank rapidly became our Trusted partner, bringing added-value to our Digital Trust portfolio built around Trusted Archiving and Secure Exchange. Our combined solution, on top of enhancing security, brings ease of use and integration to our network of partners around the world.”, declares Xavier Vignal, Chief Product Manager, STS Group.
The benefits of Federated Identity to STS Group are security and scalability of their portals, since they can provide not only authentication by user and password but also by new authentication methods.
