Global Manufacturer and Distributor Leverages LANDESK/Avatier Technology Partnership
San Ramon, CA — August 11, 2014 — CF Industries, a global leader in nitrogen fertilizer manufacturing and distribution has selected Password Central from Avatier partner LANDESK, as their reset and synchronization solution for operations worldwide. Password Central, which combines technology from both companies, empowers users to independently reset and synchronize their own passwords across multiple business applications and services without service desk technician involvement. The company will be replacing Courion in its implementation of Password Central.
CF Industries has operations around the world with seven nitrogen fertilizer manufacturing complexes in the U.S. region and Canada; fifty percent interest in KEYTRADE AG, a global fertilizer trading company headquartered in Switzerland; as well as joint ventures in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. The company employs approximately 2,800 people.
"This is another huge win in our partnership with LANDESK," commented Nelson Cicchitto, Founder and CEO of Avatier. "It validates both our identity management vision and our strong ability to execute around the world with our partners. CF Industries joins some of the best known brands in the world using Avatier solutions including Marriott Corp, Stanley Black & Decker, DHL, and Starbucks."
A feature of LANDesk Service Desk, Password Central, greatly reduces the number of password reset request calls to the service desk and increases end-user productivity. With online, touch-tone phone PIN code, voice recognition and biometric access options, Password Central offers users the ultimate flexibility in selecting a secure access reset mechanism. It transfers the power of self-service password management to the user with a simple reset capability.
