Entrust Datacard launches mobile cloud authentication solution

June 25, 2017 - 

Entrust Datacard has launched IntelliTrust authentication service, its new authentication cloud service with Mobile Smart Credential technology.

The advanced adaptive authentication solution uses the cloud’s low touch deployment components with new levels of intelligent identity capabilities to deliver a more simplified and effective user experience with stronger security.

IntelliTrust authentication service enables organizations to quickly secure access to cloud, mobile and legacy applications using a unified authentication platform that delivers transparent security and broad use case enablement across the organization.

The service features intuitive graphical interfaces and point-and-click provisioning to provide IT teams with tools to establish sophisticated, customized risk policies.

Combining these advanced security features with highly configurable parameters gives organizations the flexibility to customize and quickly deploy authentication solutions and meet continually changing business requirements.

“Stronger identity-centric security is critical to both protect and enable new business capabilities, however, it’s complex, time-consuming, and often frustratingly dynamic in its requirements,” said Ryan Zlockie, global vice president of authentication for Entrust Datacard. “It is our mission to solve this problem for our customers and ensure they feel enabled, supported and confident along the way. IntelliTrust authentication service is redefining our everyday interactions with other people and devices, no matter an organization’s size or industry, all in the name of supporting more rapid digital transformation.”

Entrust Datacard’s Mobile Smart Credential technology turns mobile devices into virtual smart cards for proximity-based physical and logical access as well as for approving transactions, encrypting data and digital signing.

Additionally, the service’s cloud-centric approach supports secure access to both native applications and SaaS apps through multiple layers of assurance including PKI and biometrics, as well as advanced device and behavioral analytics.

In a February interview with BiometricUpdate.com, Zlockie said the ability to continuously authenticate a user during a session is a major opportunity for financial and banking companies with mobile customers.
