Citizens benefit from ease of use with SafeNet Authentication Service

to protect online access to Fondo Nacional del Ahorro's accounts

AMSTERDAM - May 19, 2016 -
Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653), the world leader in digital security,
announces that the Government of Colombia has deployed itsSafeNet
Authentication Service. The solution provides secure online access to
financial services for millions of citizens provided through theFondo
Nacional del Ahorro (FNA)or National Savings Fund.

Gemalto'sSafeNet Authentication Service
provides secure, cloud-based multi-factor authentication when Colombian
citizens log into their FNA accounts. The FNA provides a broad range of
financial services, including retirement savings, loans, higher education
financial support, and unemployment benefits. Colombian citizens benefit
from simple, easy-to-use two-factor authentication provided by the solution.
After entering their online user name and password, FNA account holders
receive a one-time password (OTP) via SMS text or email that they then enter
online as a second form of user authentication and additional security to
protect their online accounts.

SafeNet Authentication Service
is a cloud-based offering that enabled the government of Colombia to rapidly
deploy a highly scalable authentication solution to support millions of users
with no upfront capital expenditures. In addition, the Gemalto authentication
solution integrated easily with the FNA back office systems, which simplifies
enrolling new users, provisioning new tokens, and reporting for the FNA IT
organization, which placed a high priority on ease of use, integration
capabilities and cloud-based delivery.

"We chose Gemalto because they are a leader in user authentication
," said Cesar Amar, Vice President of Technology at FNA. "Their cloud-based
authentication solution met out goals to operate with no
infrastructure costs and be highly automated. It was also very important that
the SafeNet Authentication Service was very simple and easy to use for Fondo
Nacional del Ahorro account users
."

"We're very excited to be able to support an initiative of this scale and
importance for the Fondo Nacional del Ahorro
," said François Lasnier, Senior Vice President for Identity Protection at
Gemalto. "The SafeNet Authentication Services provides the scalability and
cost-effectiveness for organizations to support millions of users without
having to invest in infrastructure. That is a significant advantage for IT
organizations that are looking to operate as efficiently as possible while
being able to protect access to a large number of applications and services
."

SafeNet Authentication
Service delivers fully-automated, highly secure and strong authentication with
flexible token options that are tailored to the unique needs of each
organization, substantially reducing the total cost of operation. With no
infrastructure required, the service enables a quick migration to a
multi-tier and multi-tenant cloud environment, and protects cloud-based and
on-premises applications and data as well as corporate networks, identities
and devices.
