Integralis implementing fully outsourced managed security solution for Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG

Ismaning, (PresseBox) - MDAX-listed Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg), the world's leading producer of equipment for industrial users in the printing industry, has outsourced all of its strong-authentication IT security activities to Integralis Deutschland GmbH. The contract will initially run for two years.

Originally implemented five years ago, the Integralis "Managed Authentication" solution has been successfully migrated to the Integralis "SecureAuthenticate" fully managed service.

As a result, Integralis is now managing the authentication process for a total of 6,000 users globally who access enterprise resources remotely.

Secure authentication of users is one of the most crucial precautions for preventing unauthorized or unwanted external and internal access to an enterprise's IT systems. The Integralis SecureAuthenticate service uses one-time passwords (OTPs) which are generated by means of tokens. The necessary infrastructure is hosted by Integralis via its worldwide Security Operation Centres (SOCs).

"Integralis prepared the migration very well in close consultation with Heidelberg, resulting in minimum disruption to ongoing operations," says Wolfgang Ruland, Head of Global Security Operations at Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, praising the joint multidisciplinary activities. "The previous successful partnership based on mutual trust as well as the potential for cutting costs by outsourcing the infrastructure ultimately prompted our decision to go with Integralis' managed services."

"The decision by a major global company in favour of Integralis managed security services marks a further milestone for us in this promising segment of the market," says Michael Sautter, General Manager of Global Services at Integralis.
