West Lindsey council supports flexible working with security system

Antony Savvas

West Lindsey District Council in Lincolnshire is supporting more flexible working by staff with a new security system.

The identity and access management (IAM) system from Enline delivers secure network access and provides single sign-on authentication for all applications.

Council workers are currently able to access network resources from multiple locations, such as the main council offices or terminals based in public amenities such as in libraries or church halls.

But network access involves a number of different security password/log-in processes which differ depending on the location, which is why Enline was brought in.

West Lindsey was keen to create a more seamless and consistent log-in experience for its staff, as well as offer greater flexibility and improved security for home based workers.

Enline specified the Imprivata OneSign system and Digipass one time password (OTP) tokens from Vasco, which, together, replace network passwords with two-factor authentication for staff from any location.
