Siemens AG, the German industrial conglomerate, has selected a Verizon solution to authenticate users of Siemens’ communications systems.


Utilizing the solution, Siemens increases
the security of its internal and external communications and Web application


Siemens’ in-house PKI (Public Key Infrastructure)
solution and user identity certificates are fully authorized by Verizon‘s OmniRoot
certificate chaining services, which are relied on by nearly all internet and
phone browsers as well as email clients and applications.


It is increasingly difficult – but also increasingly
important — for global companies to enable and ensure secure communications,”
said Rainer Henkelmann, chief information security officer of Siemens AG.


A significant part of our business takes place online —
in an increasingly extended enterprise environment, with customers and
suppliers, as well as our own employees – and we need to ensure that our data
and information is secure. Verizon’s globally trusted solution and expertise
have enabled us to build a secure environment that supports our global business
needs while simultaneously decreasing our costs,” Henkelmann added.


Verizon Business through its Terremark subsidiary offers
managed security services; governance, risk and compliance solutions; data loss
and prevention solutions; and identity management solutions, all delivered by
the company’s more than 1,200 security professionals around the globe.
