The data stored and worked on in those documents is business-critical and sensitive. “Cybercrime is everywhere, and everyone is fully conscious and apprehensive of its possible consequences. We received more and more requests from our customers to enhance our product with an extra layer of security,” explains Detlef Schmuck, COO at TeamDrive. “Ease of use has always been an important point of interest for us, but the security factor has become imperative as well. Browser access is easy, but it is too insecure. We started investigating the possibilities for adding strong authentication to our web portal.”

The technical team from OneSpan did an outstanding job. They guided us through the whole integration process and their support was excellent.

TeamDrive examined different vendors for a two-factor authentication solution, and ultimately choose OneSpan’s Digipass GO series. “OneSpan has established a solid track record for many years in the security space.”

Easy and Convenient

Eppendorf, a leading life science company that develops and sells instruments, consumables, and services for liquid, sample, and cell handling in laboratories worldwide, is one of TeamDrive’s customers that successfully uses OneSpan’s strong authentication technology. “Because of the sensitiveness of our data, we were a driving force to get twofactor authentication integrated in the TeamDrive platform,” says Michael Fehse, Vice President at Eppendorf. “The web portal provided a good user experience, but it opened a risk that we did not want to accept, so we believed two-factor authentication was required.”

“More than half of the top 100 banks worldwide rely on the company’s products, so we were sure that OneSpan could offer us the security that we needed,” Mr. Schmuck continues. “Moreover, OneSpan was already the number 1 choice of some of our customers.”

“We are happy to see that the integration went really well,” says Mr. Schmuck, COO of TeamDrive. “The technical team from OneSpan did an outstanding job. They guided us through the whole integration process and their support was excellent.” Eppendorf required the extra layer of security, confirms Mr. Fehse. “The technology feels very familiar to our workforce, since we also use OneSpan for other solutions besides TeamDrive.”
