Nexus at security essen 2014: Focus on Centralized Identity and Entitlement Management

Essen and Ettlingen, Germany, September 8, 2014 – Nexus, a leading international provider of IT security solutions and services, will exhibit at security essen, being held from September 23 to 26, 2014, in Essen, Germany. At the world’s leading trade show for the security sector, Nexus will showcase at booth 701 in hall 3 how a unified identity and access management can improve security and user-friendliness while maintaining high cost efficiency. The focus of this year’s trade fair appearance will be on the new platform Nexus PRIME.

Trends such as the ongoing globalization, the Internet of Things, the spread of mobile devices and the rapid digitalization of business processes pose new challenges to companies – especially with regards to security. At the same time, they hold enormous potential to rethink processes and leverage innovations. Since 2010, Nexus has been developing PRIME as a centralized solutions platform, addressing the challenges and technology trends of the digital era. Flexible workflows, mobile processes and modern user interfaces are at the core of Nexus PRIME. Since 2012, Nexus has completed several complex and demanding identity management projects based on this platform.

“With the new identity and access management platform Nexus PRIME, we now have a set of solutions that provide innovative answers to various customer needs,” says Birger Deuschel, sales manager key accounts at Interflex Datensysteme GmbH & Co. KG, an Allegion group company and a long-standing partner of Nexus. “The solution grows with our customers’ requirements. Standard packages, e.g. for RFID or PKI card management and entitlement management, can be freely combined and flexibly adjusted to the customer’s requirements. Security, flexibility and ease of use – Nexus PRIME is our first choice for complex customer projects.”

“Our customers today face the challenge of having to integrate mobile devices into their IT and business processes,” says Helmut Friedel, CEO of certgate GmbH, a specialist for mobile IT security and a technology partner of Nexus. “How can user convenience and efficiency be improved and the highest security requirements guaranteed? Nexus PRIME is the ideal identity and access management platform for businesses seeking to implement highly secure mobile IT processes. It enables the simple, centralized management of digital identities and entitlements as well as the highest security for data transmission from the server to the mobile device.”

As an additional key component of its solutions portfolio for the centralized management of entitlements for physical access, Nexus will present the standard product CardDesk by its new subsidiary INTEGID. Together, Nexus PRIME and CardDesk provide an end-to-end offering, from standard systems to complex customized solutions for entitlement management.

In addition, the following solutions will be showcased at the Nexus booth:

  • ID cards, printers and accessories complement the software portfolio of Nexus. Together with its subsidiary INTRAPROC, Nexus will present the latest ID card printers, including coding capabilities and can provide advice on all ID card-related matters.

  • Strong authentication and protection for IT systems are further crucial solution components.
