New Contract with European Bank


Intercede, the producer of the MyID Identity and Credential Management System (IDCMS) software, is pleased to announce that it has received an order for the supply of MyID software licences, professional services and annual support to a large European bank. This order was received from an Intercede business partner and has an initial first year value of approximately €250,000.

This project concerns the secure issuance of smart card based identity credentials to bank employees across a number of European countries. The initial usage of these credentials is to enable enhanced logical access security to the Bank's computer systems and networks. Future phases may include using the same cards for physical access control.

 'This new order demonstrates Intercede's further penetration into the European market. It also shows that major banks are continuing to make investments in new security systems, in spite of the global turmoil in the financial services sector', said Richard Parris, Intercede's Chairman and Chief Executive. 'This business was won after a competitive procurement process that once again highlights Intercede's MyID as the leading product in its class.'
