Swiss Environmental Company Taps RSA to Ensure Business Continuity in the Event of Global H1N1 Pandemic
Date:11/11/2009

BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC) announced that Valorec Services AG, a Swiss environmental and waste services company, has almost quadrupled its deployment of the RSA SecurID® On-Demand Authenticator for secure, remote network access in order to help guarantee business continuity. Valorec previously outfitted RSA SecurID to a smaller group of employees including members of upper management. It decided to ready an expansion of its RSA SecurID deployment as a precaution to help prepare ahead of a potential global H1N1 pandemic scenario which could require anywhere, anytime access for a significantly expanded remote workforce.

"Many of our clients have been taking measures to ensure business continuity during a pandemic and this has been at the top of our agenda because protecting their data is critical to our organization's success," said John Martinussen, Chief Information Officer, Valorec Services. "We upgraded to the newer version of RSA® Authentication Manager to use its business continuity option where user access rights are controlled centrally, making it secure and easy to manage."

The business continuity option within RSA Authentication Manager -- the server-side software that powers the RSA SecurID system -- allows Valorec to temporarily expand its license to a large number of users. Pre-authorized personnel from departments such as purchasing, control and production will be able to leverage RSA SecurID in order to protect valuable data and help ensure that operations go uninterrupted. To prevent overwhelming the IT help desk during a time when a large number of users require secure network access, an online self-service module can be accessed to request and receive an eight-digit one-time password via simple messaging service (SMS) or email.

According to Patrick Epper, Technical Engineer, Valorec Services, "It is the perfect solution because it requires no physical hardware token or software to be installed on a laptop or smart phone. We simply create a user profile and define the length of time users have access to the network, whether it's a few hours or an entire day. This technology will provide us with a reliable and secure solution in the event of a pandemic."

"With the business continuity option, an enterprise can empower users to manage their RSA SecurID token lifecycles while maintaining compliance to organizational security policies designed to protect identities, information and the infrastructure," said Tom Corn, Vice President of Product Marketing at RSA. "The RSA SecurID On-Demand Authenticator can also open the door to productivity-enhancing applications by making it easier to support a large base of users, partners and vendors that do not access the network frequently enough to justify the issuing of individual credentials."
