Bull Evidian takes the Gold medal
ITEA 2 the pan-European strategic research program has given its highest distinction, the Gold Award, to Evidian, a Bull Group company and the European identity and access management leader for the led MULTIPOL project. The aim of MULTIPOL, an ambitious research project to which ten European companies and organizations contributed, is to coordinate security policies in the extended enterprise.
“The gold award 2011 went to MULTIPOL, a project addressing smart access control to company infrastructures – physical and digital (buildings, offices, software, hardware, databases and applications). There the major challenge is to manage control across organizational boundaries, such as in post-merger integrations, subcontracting or virtual enterprises” said Rudolf Haggenmüller, the ITEA 2 Chairman.
“MULTIPOL established a mathematical theory of access control in which mergers or cooperations are mathematical operations. The theory has been implemented in working software solutions, which generated concrete business impacts during the lifetime of the project: fast exploitation.”
