ATOS: Atos integrates heartbeat identification into its unique authentication solutions

Atos introduces the Nymi Band(TM) wristband to its Evidian Enterprise SSO
unique authentication solution

Paris, Lille, 24 January 2017 -
Atos, leader in digital transformation, is launching, under its technological
brand Bull, a new, ultra-secure authentication method in its Evidian
Enterprise SSO solution. It will now use theNymi Band
, an authentication wristband based on a person's heartbeat, to enable Always
On Authentication(TM). In partnership with Nymi, the leader in wearable
authentication devices and creator of the Nymi Band, Atos is now offering
users a new way to securely access their data and critical applications via
multi-factor authentication.

Based on advanced biometric methods from Nymi like HeartID(TM) orAlways On
Authentication,
theEvidian Enterprise SSO (Single Sign-On)
solution allows users to authenticate themselves and stay authenticated, and
to easily and securely communicate with authorized workstations, either
viaBluetooth Low Energy
technologies or via NFC (Near Field Communication
).

Evidian Enterprise SSO is thereby offering an alternative to conventional
security products, such as biometric identification at terminals, chips or
card readers. This solution represents a major advance for sectors such as
health, the pharmaceutical industry and research laboratories, as users can
now sign in, hands-free, by simply pressing their Nymi Band against an NFC
reader. They are then authenticated by Bluetooth and, thanks to wireless
connection, remain so until they leave their workstation.

This enables employees to benefit from a simplified and ultra-protected user
experience to authenticate themselves and access company data and
applications without having to remember and enter passwords.

"It is an entirely unique experience for end users: this innovative
authentication will make the way they work simpler while guaranteeing company
security. Together, Atos and Nymi will be able to attain operational
excellence, even in the most sensitive of fields, while continuing to offer
optimal user convenience for their teams,"
explainsLouis-Marie Fouchard, manager of the Identity Management product
range at Atos
.

"We are delighted to work with partners like Atos to offer a new form of
authentication aimed in particular at the health and pharmaceuticals sectors.
The unique Always On Authentication technology of the Nymi Band enables
clinicians, doctors and nursing staff to easily access their data while
maintaining complete security, without using their hands or having to
remember a PIN or a password. The combined solution brings together security
and convenience like never before,"
declaresShawn Chance, Vice President of Strategy at Nymi
.

Atos is attending the International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC) 2017 on January
24thand 25that stand A22. Experts are available to discuss any issues related
to cybersecurity.
