The company works on many of the most technically challenging and time critical infrastructure projects in the world. Data security is very important for the company, and as such, Atkins is investing substantial energy and resources into creating an excellent security program.

"Atkins North America conducted a comprehensive review of available password reset solutions and vendors. The company was particularly pleased with the ongoing support it received from Specops product specialists during the evaluation phase," stated Atkins North America's IT Security Director, Doug McTighe. "We needed a secure, reliable, and easy to use password reset solution that met our stringent security requirements while being flexible enough to meet our changing organizational needs.
