Evidian, a Bull Group company and the European leader in identity and access management software, announces that Otto GmbH, the world’s largest mail order company, has chosen Evidian Enterprise SSO and Authentication Manager to provide its employees with fast and secure access to their applications.
Evidian Enterprise SSO is a leading single sign-on environment that has over 2.5 million active users worldwide. A complete desktop- and web-based solution, it provides access to client-server or web applications. Evidian Authentication Manager reinforces access security and supports authentication scenarios that make employees more productive while granting role-based information access.
Otto will initially deploy Evidian’s access management solution among the 6,000 end-users of its Hamburg, Germany headquarters. Evidian provides the Enterprise SSO and Authentication Manager software, plus tools and services to smoothly migrate Otto users away from their previous single sign-on solution. As a result, employees will access tens of resources without having to manage application passwords.
Evidian’s software replaces an existing identity and access management tool. To choose a new long-term supplier of access security, Otto pre-selected the world’s most established vendors and tested their offers extensively. Evidian was able to demonstrate the strength of its solution’s features, its flexibility and the reliability of its support procedures.
“The retail sector has very strict requirements in terms of access reliability and security. This is why we are providing features that adapted to this sector, such as kiosk mode” says Hassan Maad, Evidian COO. “For this reason, we are very proud to have been selected by a market leader such as Otto. This demonstrates our commitment to our customers’ business needs and Evidian’s business mometum in Germany and Central Europe”.
