KeyTalk sees an increasing demand for safer ways to work and email during the ‘Covid’ year
16 Dec ‘20

KeyTalk, like other IT security companies, sees a greater demand for IT security products, such as the demand for its Certificate & Key Management System and its secure email service. Inquiries with customers give an idea of what other IT security companies also indicate, employees work much more from home and certificate technology is seen as an excellent solution to easily and cost-effectively improve the security of the home workplace.

Some of the new customers who chose KeyTalk IT Security software solutions this year;

  • Thyssenkrupp Elevator, was in the news this year when it was sold by parent company Thyssenkrupp to an investment consortium for 17 2 billion euros and has therefore become completely independent. TKE was looking for a cloud-based certificate management solution to provide its 30,000+ workstations at more than 1,000 locations worldwide with short-lived authentication certificates. The three-year contract for the KeyTalk CKMS, which automatically installs GlobalSign’s machine certificates at all workstations and replaces them every 5 days, is one of the largest contracts for KeyTalk.
  • Trafigura, the global trading company wanted to use digital certificates for all more than 7,000 employees and agents to sign all outgoing email, in order to better protect the organization against Business Email Compromise, the no.1 cyber security threat of the moment. In addition, the KeyTalk solution was the only one capable of automatically adjusting and managing the email disclaimer for the more than 70 Trafigura companies at user level.
  • AEG Europe, part of the Anschutz Entertainment Group, is Europe’s no. 1 sports and music events company. AEG Europe has selected KeyTalk together with GlobalSign for the automated roll-out and management of +1,500 authentication certificates for users.
  • Fidelity Bank, the 2th Nigerian Bank that we welcomed as a customer and also realized this time by our excellent Nigerian/English partner Baverianvine. At Fidelity Bank, this involves the use of KeyTalk’s Secure Email Service, in which Fidelity Bank uses the automatically deployed S/MIME certificates not only for digital e-mail signing, but also for end-to-end encryption of highly confidential messages and authentication. of the employees’ workplace.
  • Flugger Group A/S, the market leader in paint in Denmark. Is one of the many new end customers we welcomed this year from Denmark and other Scandinavian countries. We owe this to our enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very ambitious partner TRUSTZONE who see the KeyTalk CKMS and the Secure Email Service as important spearheads for their sustainable customer loyalty. see.

We close the year with a mixed feeling, on the one hand there is the enormous human sadness and the very strong business setback in various industries due to the global Covid-19 pandemic and on the other hand we see the positive developments in new customers and partners that we have welcomed worldwide and of which we expect an even greater increase in 2021. In any case, we will make even greater efforts in 2021 to make the world a little bit more IT-safe.

We wish everyone healthy and very happy holidays, and that 2021 may bring more joy, health and joint festivities again!
