Tullow Oil employees must be able to access corporate email from a number of diverse locations. They also needed guaranteed data and communications integrity as employees often communicate about extremely sensitive issues. The solution needed to keep communications secure and ensure that only verified Tullow Oil employees could have access.
Tullow Oil chose Zinopy to help them evaluate solutions to meet its need for secure remote access. F5 and Swivel Secure were chosen as they could ensure both security and scalability as the company’s needs evolved.
Initially, Tullow Oil put in place a solution based on F5’s SSL VPN and Swivel Secure’s authentication platform. The SSL VPN enables secure access to corporate applications such as email via a web browser. Tullow employees are extremely mobile, so it was vital that any secure login solution was easy to use and eliminated the possibility of losing tokens, cards or other security management devices. Swivel Secure’s solution is a tokenless two-factor and strong authentication platform.
