Gemalto: Gemalto enhances secure remote access for Red Hat employees

Amsterdam, April 28, 2014
- Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security,
has been selected by Red Hat to implement digital security tokens that enable
secure remote access for the company's more than 6,000 employees. Red Hat is
the world's leading provider of open source software solutions, using a
community-powered approach to reliable and high-performing cloud, Linux®,
middleware, storage and virtualization technologies.Gemalto'sProtiva
tokenintegrates easily with Red Hat's strong authentication technology for
employees connecting to the company's virtual private network (VPN) and
security assertion markup language (SAML) enabled applications.

Red Hat is at the forefront of open source technology, making it essential
that their sensitive information is protected by more secure measures than
just a username and password. Utilizing Gemalto's security form-factor Red
Hat receives secure remote access, with an extra layer of security. With the
importance Red Hat places on open standard solutions, the interoperability of
Gemalto's solution gives Red Hat the flexibility to easily integrate it into
their existing and future IT systems. Implementing multi-factor
authentication offers advantages on top of the immediate security benefits to
enterprises; it is also a preventative measure that can reduce costs from
helpdesk calls related to password resets.

"We needed a security solution that provided the same standards we work to
promote
,and Gemalto's product and
customer support throughout the deployment enabled our members to easily
integrate the token into our multi-factor authentication process without
missing a beat,"
said Jay Madison, Senior Director, Information and Services, Red Hat.

"Gemalto and Red Hat share the same mission of innovation as well as the
dedication to providing high-performance software products and services, such
as future-proof cloud computing solutions,"
said Thomas Flynn, Vice President of Identity and Access for Gemalto North
America. "The two-factor authentication market is growing rapidly and we are
seeing that
in more and more enterprises, strong authentication has shifted from being
considered a best practice to now being a security policy obligation."
