International Car Dealership Network Uses Strong Authentication from OpenTrust

OpenTrust : 25 February, 2010  (Application Story)
Over 100,000 users have been subscribed onto a global car dealer network using OpenTrust strong authentication for security that goes beyond the use of passwords
OpenTrust has surpassed the 100K users in one of the largest enterprise authentication projects worldwide.

OpenTrust solutions allow remote secure authentication for various users of this global organization. Access to the corporate network and confidential internal information are only possible through strong authentication.

The company determined that simple password mechanisms could not provide sufficient access control for business-critical applications deployed worldwide. For security reasons, users were forced to use multiple passwords, often resorted to writing their passwords on post it notes, a big security risk for a major publicly listed organization.

The challenge was to find a robust solution capable of managing the life cycle of this immense number of tokens and credentials worldwide. OpenTrust solutions offered a simple management solution strengthened by high modularity and scalability for large volumes of distributed users.

Each user within this manufacturers' worldwide network has been equipped with a token containing their certificate for portal access. With the trusted identities and trusted devices across the enterprises' network involved in all access control operations, the security and traceability of transactions is guaranteed.

Today, OpenTrust solution has surpassed all expectations and will continue on its successful roll out to be deployed for more than 150,000 users over the next months.

"Our customer was looking for a flexible PKI solution with fast ROI that was capable of being integrated into a rapidly expanding environment. The OpenTrust PKI solution was selected because it was the only solution on today's market that met all of the current requirements while, simultaneously, allowing for the planning of future business needs.', said Olivier Guilbert, CEO of OpenTrust.
