Bracknell, UK: Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, has selected CRYPTO-MAS – CRYPTOCard’s innovative, user-friendly two-factor authentication service – to assist clients in providing secure access to its new cloud services solution – Capgemini Immediate.
Catering to a wide range of global enterprises, Capgemini Immediate is a best-of-breed ecosystem of cloud computing services, which enables Capgemini to provide clients with a true utility-based computing solution, with Capgemini acting as services orchestrator, integrator and prime contractor.
By deploying the CRYPTO-MAS authentication Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, Capgemini can ensure clients can secure the digital identities of all of their customers, and staff, ensuring that only authenticated users can take advantage of the innovative online and mobile technology offered through its cloud computing platform.
CRYPTO-MAS was designed specifically for systems integrators and service providers, offering a multi-tier, multi-tenant management capability and a ‘zero up-front investment’ commercial proposition – a major departure from the traditional authentication business model. No capex investment and CRYPTO-MAS’ seamless integration with a wide range of cloud and web-based applications, means systems integrators and service providers can offer security reassurance to their customers in a manageable, cost-effective manner.
Calum Murray, Global Head of Cloud Strategy, Capgemini, said: “We are delighted that CRYPTOCard is part of the Capgemini Immediate ecosystem of providers as they help us to address one of our clients’ major concerns, that of data and user security in the Cloud. Capgemini Immediate marks a coming-of-age for cloud computing and gives us the opportunity to show what this exciting new channel can do in terms of delivering IT services with speed, cost-effectiveness, scalability and flexibility. We look forward to working closely with CRYPTOCard as we develop one of the first complete cloud service offerings in the market.”
“The password is still the weakest link of any IT infrastructure and a growing issue for companies as they migrate to the cloud,” said Neil Hollister, President and CEO of CRYPTOCard. “By securing their cloud-based services with CRYPTO-MAS two-factor authentication, Capgemini is leading the way among service integrators, giving their customers a peace of mind that their cloud-based data and applications are safe from unauthorised access.”
