 BIO-key International has announced that GATX Corporation, the leading global railcar leasing company, has chosen to expand their use of BIO-key's PortalGuard IAM solution to its GATX Rail Europe operations to deliver cost-effective and secure password management to improve their employees' end-user experience and reduce related costs.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, GATX Rail Europe's operations team has shifted most of their employees to remote work, creating the need to implement secure password management from remote locations. The IT team was faced with runaway Help Desk costs supporting employees in the work-from-home model while it strove to deliver a great user experience. The PortalGuard IAM solution met important project goals that included cybersecurity, reduced IT resource costs, and the enforcement and management of strong passwords on all devices, whether company-owned or not.

"Since 2004, our team has built a strong track record delivering multiple value-add security solutions to GATX," said Mark Cochran, President of BIO-key - PortalGuard. "Events this year have substantially accelerated enterprise adoption of the work-from-home model, resulting in widespread security and identity challenges, rising costs, and workflow disruption. PortalGuard is an ideal solution for these challenges, providing the perfect balance of security, usability, and rapid deployment, all at a very competitive cost. Expanding our footprint within an existing customer is both gratifying and the strongest possible endorsement of the value and flexibility of our PortalGuard solution."
