INTERCEDE GROUP plc

('Intercede', the ‘Company' or the ‘Group') 

New Contract Award 

Intercede, the software and service company specialising in identity, credential management and secure mobility, today announces it has signed a contract with a large European bank.

Under this agreement, Intercede will supply its MyID product for over 10,000 employees in addition to recurring support and maintenance services. The deal is worth more than £250,000 over a three-year period with most of the value accruing in the first 12 months of the contract period.

Intercede’s MyID will enable the bank to eliminate a reliance on the use of potentially insecure passwords for its internal systems security. In doing so, the bank will become more resistant to social engineering and other cyber-attacks based on compromising employee passwords. By deploying more robust methods of authentication, the bank will be able to reduce instances of fraud and improve the level of privacy and security provided to customers across the globe. Consequently, the bank will reduce its overall financial risks and exposures under the upcoming the EU’s General Data and Protection Regulations (GDPR).

Richard Parris, Chairman & Chief Executive of Intercede, said:

“This contract was secured following a comprehensive and exhaustive tender process over an extended period. Our success demonstrates that Intercede’s MyID product for employees remains the top of its class, is technically relevant and commercially viable for some of the world’s largest and most security sensitive companies. I am delighted we secured this win in a country with a strongly competitive local market thereby proving our capacity to project our sales and technical support capabilities into the wider EU marketplace.”
