NGT Group has successfully deployed strong 2 factor authentication project in National Bank of Georgia. As its role of a central bank NBG follows the best practices and acts as an example for every Georgian bank.
NBG wanted to raise security of its internet-facing and internal IT resources with implementation of second factor of authentication. The solution chosen was based on Gemalto IDConfirm strong authentication server for one time passwords. For end user authenticators Mobile OTP device as well as smart card based OTP devices were offered.
Eventually the solution enables the employees and contactors of NBG to securely access to the following resources:
• Outlook web access
• Internal ERP system
The physical smart card based OTP authenticators are designed with RFID, in order to enable NBG to use the same cards for physical access control some time in future.
