Continental Airlines has issued more than 1,000 security tokens to its staff and business partners to help meet the demands of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

PCI DSS is an industry-defined set of rules that regulate cardholder data handling and transaction processing.

The tokens will help deliver secure remote access to Continental's corporate network.

The airline, the world's fifth biggest, has enabled two factor authentication to its network with the tokens.

"Prioritising the security of our network, Continental looks to technologies such as the Aladdin eToken to meet important IT security guidelines," said Andrew Dana, Continental Airlines' IT Security Manager.
