AMV was requiring a solution which allowed their auditors and C-level executives to connect remotely to the company’s servers in order to access the organization’s centralized resources. Remote access made information vulnerable to attacks based on identity theft, particularly because access privileges of auditors and directors allowed them to access almost any type of information.
The technology team was afraid of implementing a VPN that required users to have extensive computing knowledge. The consulting team was specialized in markets, but not in operating systems.
After evaluating several possible solutions, AMV decided to implement Azuan® AZVPN to solve its need for remote access while protecting all users from a possible identity theft. By recommendation of Azuan® Technologies, AMV decided to include the AZHWID token solution so that users of the VPN could have a two-factor authentication mechanism, but without the costs associated with the purchase and management of proprietary tokens. Today, Azuan® AZVPN allows all employees of AMV to connect remotely to all the information and infrastructure resources in such a way as to allow them to work ‘transparently’ in a remote environment.
AMV began operations in 2006 as the first market self-regulator in Colombia, becoming a pioneer of this line of business in Latin America. To fulfill its role as regulator it was necessary for the company to send personnel to the offices of different market players. However, it was also necessary for said personnel to remotely access the technological resources that had been assigned to them.
