RSA Conference -- Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in
digital security, today announced its Protiva Cloud Confirm solutions are
being used by Exostar to help secure applications connected to the company’s
cloud-based Identity Hubs for aerospace and life sciences communities. Gemalto
Protiva Cloud solutions include IDProve one-time password (OTP) tokens and the
IDConfirm strong authentication server.

Exostar’s Identity Hubs offer a connect-once environment that allows companies
and their suppliers, partners, and customers to conduct business securely,
effectively, and seamlessly. In addition to its federated identity management
services, Exostar delivers a single sign-on user experience and controlled
access to applications, be they Exostar applications, customer
applications/portals, or third-party applications. Today, Exostar’s Identity
Hubs support over 300,000 organizations and individuals located in upwards of
100 countries worldwide.

With the Protiva Cloud Confirm solution, Exostar has augmented its strong
authentication options (which include Government-compliant hardware and
software digital certificates and Common Access Cards) with OTP tokens.
Gemalto’s scaleable, open standard solutions have empowered Exostar to
program, provision, and support all OTP tokens in-house.

”Our customers must be able to conduct business and collaborate across
enterprise boundaries with great ease and efficiency. They also require the
certainty that their sensitive information and intellectual property are
protected at all times,” said Vijay Takanti, Exostar’s Vice President of
Security and Collaboration Solutions. “That’s why more of our customers are
demanding strong authentication access controls. By adding the OTP solution
from Gemalto to our arsenal, we’re reinforcing our objective of enabling our
customers to reduce risk, improve agility, and collaborate securely and
confidently throughout their communities.”

“When you’re dealing with some of the world’s largest companies in aerospace
and life sciences, it is paramount that the security solutions in place match
the intricate and proprietary caliber of business interactions,” said Tom
Flynn, Vice President Online Authentication at Gemalto North America.
“Gemalto’s Protiva Cloud Confirm offerings are specifically suited to meet the
rigorous access requirements inherent in the everyday workings of Exostar’s
customer base.”
