Singapore Deploys Gemalto’s Authentication Solution

The Objective Is to secure access to government e-services

Gemalto has deployed its Coesys eGov Authentication Server in Singapore, which provides Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) and end-to-end encryption of passwords to secure Singapore Personal Access (SingPass) logins. The authentication solution helps to provide better security for SingPass users when they access government e-services involving sensitive data.

As part of the new two-step login process, users are required to enter a One-Time Password (OTP), in addition to their SingPass user ID and password. By end of 2016, more than 60% of country’s e-government services will require users to use this additional layer of verification, offering greater security for citizens and Government alike.
Gemalto’s Coesys eGov Authentication Server supports a wide range of authentication methods, including hardware tokens and mobile phones. It is compatible with all open standards and is easy-to-integrate with existing solutions within the e-government framework.

“Data breaches worldwide continue to compromise millions of records, with identity theft accounting for 75% of them,” said Michael Au, President South Asia and Japan at Gemalto. “Gemalto’s authentication solution will make it harder to steal identities, allowing citizens to enjoy a safe and secure access to their e-government services.”
