Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital

trading floors where workstations have multiple trading terminals. This
new solution enables traders to log on to multiple terminals in one go
with the highest security level ensured by two-factor authentication –
the only solution on the market today that offers this unique
combination of flexibility and security. Protiva One4all is already
being piloted at a leading global financial institution.

Protiva One4all provides unprecedented security and traceability for
banks and complete ease-of-use for traders. Users simply log on at their
primary (‘master’) terminal using their PKI smart card and the exact
same strong authentication is automatically replicated across each of
their other (‘slave’) terminals. One action, multiple secure log-on’s,
hundreds of valuable minutes saved over the course of an active trading

Crucially, all events, such as log-off, log-on, lock and unlock can be
replicated across the slave terminals, which significantly increases
efficiency in the workplace and provides banks and brokers with
unrivalled transaction security and tracking. A transparent screenlock
feature is also integrated into the solution, again providing peace of
mind to both the firm and the individual traders.

This innovative solution was designed in close collaboration with
our customer to ensure that it meets the myriad security requirements
that a fast-paced trading floor demands
,” commented François
Lasnier, Senior Vice President of Online Authentication at Gemalto. “Our
strategy is to make cutting-edge security solutions much simpler for
corporations and their employees, so intuitive and convenient that user
adoption is virtually guaranteed

Protiva One4all is a stand-alone software designed to work with any PKI
smart card and middleware. It can be effortlessly installed on
workstations, with no impact on a bank's existing IT systems. Full
support and maintenance of the ProtiveOne4All solution are provided by

To date, over 20 million employees across the world securely access
their company premises and sensitive data every day, thanks to the
Gemalto’s Protiva family of strong authentication solutions.
