GlobalSign Showcases Innovative Identity Management and Security Services for the Banking Industry at CL@B

As Consumers Seek Convenience Through Mobile Banking and Other Smart Technologies, GlobalSign's Solutions Achieve Secure Yet Agile Authentication

PANAMA CITY, PANAMA--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2014) - GlobalSign, a leading global Certificate Authority (CA) and a provider of identity and security services for commerce, communications, content and communities, will leverage this week's 14th annual Congress of Latin American Banks (XIV CL@B) exposition to showcase innovative solutions it has deployed with financial institutions and insurance firms worldwide. With on-the-go consumer banking services dramatically increasing the number and types of transactions to be secured from rampant threats, GlobalSign will provide ideas on ways that cloud-based certificate management, two factor authentication and API technology can help. 

"Latin America has seen brisk adoption of GlobalSign's identity and security solutions this year, with the banking sector a top vertical segment," said Laila Robak, regional manager of GlobalSign's Latin American operations. "As threats become more sophisticated, yet consumer offerings multiply, financial industry firms are turning to GlobalSign for automated, highly secure solutions that identify and authenticate devices, documents and people, while enhancing consumer ease and simplicity."

At CL@B, GlobalSign hopes to educate organizations on how to meet today's top security requirements as banks and financial institutions alike meet the demands of smart technology and the Internet of Things (IoT). GlobalSign's identity and authentication solutions help identify and secure devices, communications, content, transactions and products that are critical to business operations. A recent example of this is a payment provider company which needed a solution to ensure that only authenticated machines could communicate with their back-end servers and also encrypt the information being transmitted when consumers would insert cash in their terminals to securely pay utility bills and make other payments,

By using GlobalSign's digital certificates and API, the company is able to programmatically push SSL certificates to each Kiosk, automating deployment, renewal and other stages of certificate lifecycle management, while ensuring secure transactions.

Additionally, GlobalSign will showcase the following use cases and benefits of its enterprise identity and security services:

  • Digital Certificates for Strong Authentication. Using digital certificates for convenient and secure certificate-based and token-based two-factor authentication. GlobalSign's solutions allow granular control over who, or what, accesses services, data and digital assets. The solution also provides extended features perfectly suited for large organizations operating in a Windows environment by leveraging Active Directory for auto enrollment and silent installation.

  • Digital Signatures and HostedHSM. A hosted Hardware Security Module (HSM) allows for digital signing in high-volume applications, such as authenticating bank statements. This provides a cost-effective, yet highly secure way to apply digital signatures to documents, conveying trust to the recipients.

  • SaaS-based Certificate Management Platform. GlobalSign's certificate management platform supports distribution and lifecycle management of both SSL and enterprise PKI certificates, ensuring easy deployment within an enterprise.

GlobalSign is the security division of GMO Internet, Inc. (TSE: 9449), headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. The CL@B exposition takes place at the Hard Rock Hotel and Convention Center in Panama City from September 10th-12th.
