Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security,
today launched Protiva Trade Connect, a solution specifically designed for the
unique demands of multi-terminal computing environments such as those used by
financial traders. Protiva Trade Connect was developed in close relationship
with some of the world’s largest financial institutions and has been deployed
across their trading floors in key financial centers globally.

Protiva Trade Connect is an easy-to-deploy, easy-to-use authentication
software solution that delivers convenience, robust security controls, and a
strong return on investment through smooth and efficient trading floor
operations. This software solution allows traders to logon to multiple
terminals with a single identity credential, backed with several security
controls to ensure only an authorized user is accessing these systems. In
addition, all workstation commands are logged and securely maintained in a
centralized server for full audit capabilities.

“Protiva Trade Connect is perfect for hectic trading floor environments where
every second counts,” said François Lasnier, Senior  Vice President, Online
Authentication at Gemalto. “With Protiva Trade Connect in place, financial
institutions can streamline operations, increase productivity and provide a
better work experience for their traders. This is achieved through a secure,
yet simplified access process that gives traders the freedom to leave their
workstation without fear of unauthorized access. It helps institutions to
better ensure traceability and regulatory compliance initiatives governing
trading floor monitoring. More time means more trades, equaling more
commissions and revenue.”

Protiva Trade Connect is fully scalable and designed to fit the needs of any
organization. The identity credential on the Protiva IDCore badge can also be
customized to work with physical access systems, increasing the value,
simplicity and security of trading floor access requirements. Protiva Trade
Connect is the only solution on the market today that offers this unique
combination of flexibility and security, providing banks and brokers with
unrivaled efficiency and tracking of access events.

Protiva Trade Connect is available now, worldwide.
