Unisys is to distribute 28,000 security tokens to staff to help protect its network and buildings.

Unisys is using eTokens supplied by Aladdin Knowledge Systems, and they will eventually be carried by staff at 300 of the company’s sites worldwide.

About the size of a credit card, the cards will allow staff to gain access to offices, while also allowing them to complete a Windows-based network log-in.

John Frymier, director of information security at Unisys, said, “Convenience, performance, seamless integration and ease of use are critical, since thousands of employees with digital credentials will use them to enter a Unisys facility and log on to the network.

“This integrated solution maximises the use of smartcard technology, creating a streamlined tool that provides a simple and consistent layer of security,” said Frymier.
