Managed Security Services and PalmSecure helps Hydro’s Brazilian business operations to align to global standards

"Fujitsu became our best performing vendor in recent years with high user satisfaction. It was the clear choice to deliver a standardized environment in line with the rest of the business."

Jo De Vliegher Chief Information Officer Hydro

Customer

Hydro is a fully integrated aluminum company with 35,000 employees in 40 countries on all continents, combining local expertise, worldwide reach and unmatched capabilities in R&D. Hydro is present within all market segments for aluminum, with sales and trading activities throughout the value chain serving more than 30,000 customers.

Challenge

Hydro wanted to bring its Brazilian operations into line with the rest of the business to reduce costs and improve performance. It turned to long-time service and technology partner, Fujitsu, for advice.

Solution

The Brazilian managed infrastructure services were transferred to Fujitsu. To achieve this, the infrastructure was modernized, including Fujitsu servers, storage and networking, as well as a dedicated Managed Security Service and FUJITSU PalmSecure™ for user ID. Teams in Finland, Norway, Poland, India and Brazil ensured the seamless transition to the new platform.

Benefit

  • 20 percent reduction in operational costs
  • FUJITSU PalmSecure™ provides secure biometric access to devices even in dusty and dirty environments
  • One standardized, global IT platform ensures consistency and availability
  • Fujitsu Managed Security Service minimizes threats and vulnerabilities
