Security Down Under


October 14, 2005 2:41 pm





We had a press release out of Australia this week on an Identity Management deployment with St. George Bank. It’s a significant deal because St. George is one of Australia’s largest banks with 2.9 million customers and 7,300 employees. The bank has grown over time through a few mergers and acquisitions, so it was important to them to create a security platform that integrated their different systems and that could be centrally managed. In addition to managing access for employees, St. George Bank will use the solution to authenticate customers and provide them with self-service capabilities for managing their passwords.

    Please stop thinking of parts of the world as regions. Any deal this size should be major news, just how many other players in the market place can talk about authentication solutions (and I guess LDAP services) for 2.9M
    possible users.

    Banking is a world wide business with the same security issues world wide. You need to present such deals world wide. Novell’s main web site is making great play of the ID shoot out (which you won just). The news of a major client should be up ther along side it.

    There are a number of factors we consider with any customer win when determining whether or not to do a press release in the U.S., such as the size of the customer, name recognition and the potential for coverage. This blog is an additional forum we use for distributing that information. Ultimately, we do highlight a number of International customers in press releases, at our trade shows, throughout the Web site, etc.

    Thanks for your interest in the blog and commments on this and other postings.
