Oblix, a developer of identity-based security solutions, announced that The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company, the nation's second oldest mutual life insurer, has deployed the Oblix COREid Identity Management and Access Control solution for user authentication and authorization. With Oblix COREid, Penn Mutual home and field office associates, plus the company's thousands of financial professionals, can use a single user name and password to access applications they need to accomplish daily tasks, such as accessing e-mail, processing policy applications or reviewing client policy information -- all done seamlessly and securely.
Oblix COREid facilitates a secure, personalized user experience by authenticating each user's login and directing him or her to a user web site that includes accessible applications and information. Users can then easily access the data and applications for which they are authorized. In addition, end users can now manage their own registration process, user credentials and user profile, enabling them to make changes when needed. By automating these processes, COREid is helping Penn Mutual to deliver high levels of security, while reducing administrative costs, such as fielding helpdesk calls for forgotten passwords.
"Penn Mutual is dedicated to providing its financial professionals with the most efficient resources possible so they can spend more time servicing clients' needs and less time in the office on the phone with the Customer Service Center," said Stephen Byrne, director of Enterprise Architecture for Penn Mutual. "With Oblix, our sales representatives can use the same set of electronic credentials for almost everything they need -- that includes e-mail, LAN access and client-server applications. Looking forward, Oblix will play an even larger role as we expand our Web-based applications and deliver a more personalized experience that is unique to the user's profile and individual preferences."
"Large enterprises share a common challenge: they must provide higher levels of security to increasingly complex infrastructures while simplifying the end user experience," said Ken Sims, vice president of marketing and business development at Oblix. "Companies are recognizing that they must pull identity and access management out of the application silos they have traditionally resided in and manage them centrally. This increases overall system security while lowering costs. Penn Mutual is one of a large number of insurance institutions that are leveraging Oblix COREid to accomplish this critical function."
