GLOBAL MINING CORPORATION

MyID® credential management enables Governments and their departments to issue and manage secure digital identities to protect user access to software, data, systems and buildings for cyber secure operations

Faster transactions with greater security – how a leading global mining corporation use MyID for mobile authentication and transaction signing.

One of the world’s largest natural resource companies, operating mining, metallurgical and oil production sites across more than 35 countries and employing 145,000 people, required a solution to free up its teams from the slow, in-efficient process of transaction approvals.

THE CHALLENGE

With a geographically spread workforce, and operations in many remote locations, employees regularly need access to financial applications without easy access to an office and desktop computer.

Whether it is an employee at a mining operation requiring to sign off a financial transaction to a parts supplier, or accessing an accounting or expenses application remotely. Employees regularly need to sign off on large transactions and so the company will not compromise on security. Strong multi-factor authentication using public key infrastructure (PKI) has been the foundation of the company’s workforce authentication, ensuring only the right people have access to the right applications and funds.

However, the existing method of requiring employees to authenticate to virtual desktops was proving to be slow and unreliable, reducing efficiency and providing a poor user experience for employees.

The company needed a more flexible, user-friendly solution for its employees that would still be backed up by the security of PKI based multi-factor authentication.

BENEFITS

Futureproofed

MyID software has a quarterly release cycle, ensuring the deployment will continue to offer the functionality, and work with the technologies and vendors the company wants to use.
