- In 2004, Deloitte invested in a full Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) program that resulted in the company deploying smartcard technology across the organization—including access to buildings, computers and printers.
- In line with this, Deloitte identified the need for full encryption to ensure that the confidential information stored on every one of its people's desktop and laptop computers was secure.
- Since encryption solutions do not typically have a uniform means of dealing with smartcard technology, integration could have proven a challenge.
- But with the help of Sophos Professional Services, Sophos SafeGuard Enterprise was integrated quickly and effectively with Deloitte Ireland's existing security infrastructure, including the firm's smartcard system.
- With the installation of Sophos SafeGuard Enterprise, Deloitte Ireland now has a best-of-breed partnership, combining smartcard and encryption policies.
