Helvetia, one of the leading Swiss insurers, has decided to expand its partnership with AdNovum, the Swiss leader in identity and access management. To speed up secure deployment of new digital offerings, it introduces the new administration platform of AdNovum's NEVIS Security Suite by the end of this year.
Helvetia’s aim is to further strengthen its position in the market by executing its helvetia 20.20 strategy, focusing on business agility and new digital offerings to deliver outstanding customer experiences. A key factor in achieving this aim is to reduce time to market for digital offerings.
“The new administration platform of AdNovum's Security Suite NEVIS enables our product development and operations teams to quickly deploy security infrastructures, following best practices, in an agile and automated manner. We can now react faster to changing customer needs”, says Mr. Harald Müller, Head of Web Access Services at Helvetia.
With NEVIS' new administration platform nevisAdmin4, Helvetia's product development teams can conveniently cater to security needs as part of the development process. This leads to shorter deployment times and guarantees that security is built into new services from the start, and not as an afterthought. nevisAdmin4 integrates seamlessly into existing infrastructures.
Mohamed Abdel-Gaber, Head of Sales and Business Development NEVIS, comments: “We are very pleased to win Helvetia, a renowned Swiss insurer, as one of the first customers for our new administration platform. This deployment helps moving the security infrastructure at Helvetia to an agile state and will bring the company closer to its customers.”
