Colombia selects Gemalto strong authentication solution to secure citizens access to financial services

SafeNet Authentication Service is a cloud-based offering that enabled the government of Colombia to rapidly deploy a highly scalable authentication solution to support millions of users with no upfront capital expenditures. In addition, the Gemalto authentication solution integrated easily with the FNA back office systems, which simplifies enrolling new users, provisioning new tokens, and reporting for the FNA IT organization, which placed a high priority on ease of use, integration capabilities and cloud-based delivery.

„We chose Gemalto because they are a leader in user authentication,“ said Cesar Amar, Vice President of Technology at FNA. „Their cloud-based authentication solution met out goals to operate with no infrastructure costs and be highly automated. It was also very important that the SafeNet Authentication Service was very simple and easy to use for Fondo Nacional del Ahorro account users.“

„We’re very excited to be able to support an initiative of this scale and importance for the Fondo Nacional del Ahorro,“ said François Lasnier, Senior Vice President for Identity Protection at Gemalto. „The SafeNet Authentication Services provides the scalability and cost-effectiveness for organizations to support millions of users without having to invest in infrastructure. That is a significant advantage for IT organizations that are looking to operate as efficiently as possible while being able to protect access to a large number of applications and services.“

SafeNet Authentication Service delivers fully-automated, highly secure and strong authentication with flexible token options that are tailored to the unique needs of each organization, substantially reducing the total cost of operation. With no infrastructure required, the service enables a quick migration to a multi-tier and multi-tenant cloud environment, and protects cloud-based and on-premises applications and data as well as corporate networks, identities and devices.
