Natixis: a company committed
to the security of its IS
Natixis is a French financial establishment with an international presence, specialising in asset and wealth management, finance and investment banking, insurance and payments. A subsidiary of Groupe BPCE, the 2nd largest banking group in France through its Banque Populaire et Caisse d’Épargne networks. Natixis has nearly 16,000 employees across 38 countries. It offers support and advice to its own clients including businesses, financial institutions and institutional investors, as well as to clients from networks of the BPCE Group.
Cybersecurity is a major issue for Natixis: it has more than 150 security experts working daily in its IT department. Of these, around twenty are dedicated exclusively to subjects relating to identity protection and access control.
In 2017, Natixis launched the «Global Adaptive Access Platform» (GAAP) program, the aim of which is to centralise and reinforce the security of access to its IS and to reduce the risk of identity theft, but also to offer ergonomic and innovative methods of authentication to all of its users.
