Novell exteNd and Nsure solutions help travelling Egemin employees be more productive with secure, remote access to a personalized portal
More than a third of Egemin's employees work outside the office and need remote access to files stored on the company's central servers. In the past, employees would dial in with a simple modem connection, but the data volume soon became too large and the information too sensitive for a slow, insecure link.
In addition, an increasing number of customers have requested remote access to improve cooperation on their projects. Egemin wanted to create a corporate portal to give both employees and customers secure access to information at any time, and from any machine.
"We evaluated a variety of solutions and after long and careful consideration, we decided to go for a solution built around Novell iChain. Novell iChain was simply the best product - and the easiest to implement."
"We evaluated a variety of solutions and after long and careful consideration, we decided to go for a solution built around Novell iChain," said Gert Vanden Bergh, ICT Systems Manager at Egemin. "Novell iChain was simply the best product - and the easiest to implement."
To implement a secure portal solution, Egemin relied on 4all NetWorks, a Novell Business Expert Partner in Belgium and long-time consulting partner. The team used Novell exteNd to create a portal for its applications, all of which run on central servers at Egemin's headquarters.
Novell eDirectory provides a central repository for user information to authenticate users based on identity. Novell iChain provides a secure front-end for portal applications, ensuring that the right people have access to the right information. Egemin uses iChain to enforce strong authentication without having to make any changes to back-end applications, reducing both implementation time and costs.
