New Entrust Discovery simplifies and automates notifications, analysis and validation — all via a single cloud or on-premise service. For more information about Entrust Discovery, visit entrust.net/discovery
DALLAS, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Finding, managing and analyzing SSL and other digital certificates can be time-consuming, complex and expensive. To help automate and simplify these tasks, Entrust Inc. introduces innovative features for the Entrust Discovery service that is designed to help solve three of the industry's top SSL challenges: avoiding application outages, ensuring compliance and managing multi-source certificate environments.
"Enterprise technical environments are too complex to believe that buying a few SSL certificates is sufficient to satisfy both internal and external security and compliance responsibilities," said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "From discovery, management and validation, to analysis and reporting, digital certificate management is required on an ongoing basis. This is particularly true for large organizations that may have different types of digital certificates from many different vendors."
Simplifying these responsibilities, Entrust introduces key service upgrades to directly address the most difficult SSL and digital certificate pitfalls experienced by enterprises, organizations and businesses in various industries and verticals.
Avoid Application Outages — Automatic 'Certificate Chain Validation' Alerts
Ensure Compliance, Avoid Breach — 'Custom Charts, Filtering & Rules'
Simplify Management in Delegated Environments — 'Organization' Customization
True Certificate Discovery
Available as a managed service (cloud model) or a customer-deployed solution, Entrust Discovery simplifies the certificate discovery and inventory process. This can help save the management effort of manually inventorying machines and networks, as well as tracking certificate expiry dates in complicated spreadsheets or tables.
Within an organization's environment, Entrust Discovery is capable of quickly finding and inventorying certificates. Three separate components — Entrust Discovery Agent, Entrust Discovery CAPI Scanner and Entrust Discovery Manager — collaborate to help organizations discover the risks caused by rogue or expiring certificates, and then subsequently assists in resolving these issues.

Entrust Product Marketing Manager for Financial Services Solutions, Mike Byrnes, discusses the release of an Arabic soft token. This expands Entrust's software authentication framework allowing local language security options to be leveraged for addressing security and business needs.
DALLAS, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its investment in the Middle East, Entrust Inc. announces the availability of Arabic-language soft tokens as part of the Entrust IdentityGuard software authentication platform and the company's comprehensive security framework. These distinctive soft tokens are available natively with Entrust IdentityGuard and don't require investment or application development by end-customers.
"Entrust's security framework not only bridges physical, logical and mobile access management via a single platform, but also provides necessary migration capabilities to co-exist with current systems that help streamline transition," said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "Dedicated Arabic-language soft tokens will simplify security for native Arabic-speaking customers, helping Entrust provide world-class security that delivers on both effectiveness and the end-user experience."
Entrust IdentityGuard is a key component of Entrust's identity framework that serves as the foundation of a complete layered security environment, which includes the deployment of strong, risk-based authentication to properly secure banking customers, enterprises, financial institutions and governments.
Entrust's Arabic soft token is already being deployed in two of the largest financial institutions within the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, with more than 6 million total users in the region. Distribution of soft tokens is achieved through mobile-based marketplaces, like Apple iTunes and Google Play, or the Entrust IdentityGuard Self-Service Module for user management.
The GCC, also known as the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf, consists of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar and Kuwait. The group boasts a combined population of 42.1 million.
"The Middle East, particularly the six GCC states, are experiencing tremendous growth, and have been for some time," said Conner. "Until now, many of their only authentication options were based on the English language. This is a true differentiator for Entrust and delivered as a native capability on our ever-expanding software authentication platform."
Entrust's comprehensive management framework serves as an organization's single software-based security platform that bridges emerging technologies for strong mobility, cloud and smart credentialing offerings. By seamlessly integrating co-deployment measures, federation security, advanced APIs and self-service management tools, Entrust strengthens security, maximizes staff efficiency and reduces overall costs.
Entrust's flagship authentication solution, Entrust IdentityGuard, continues to lead the industry as one of the most robust software authentication platforms, delivering an unmatched breadth of capabilities and flexibility to meet the most demanding security environments.
The solution enables organizations to layer security — according to access requirements or the risk of a given transaction — across diverse users and applications. Entrust's diverse set of authentication capabilities include smartcards and USB tokens, soft tokens, grid cards and eGrids, IP-geolocation, questions and answers, mobile smart credentials, out-of-band one-time passcode (delivered via voice, SMS or email), out-of-band transaction verification and a range of one-time-passcode tokens.
A trusted provider of identity-based security solutions, Entrust secures governments, enterprises and financial institutions in more than 5,000 organizations spanning 85 countries. Entrust's award-winning software authentication platforms manage today's most secure identity credentials, addressing customer pain points for cloud and mobile security, physical and logical access, citizen eID initiatives, certificate management and SSL.

Entrust Product Manager for Entrust Certificate Services, Scott Shetler, discusses Entrust becoming the first Certification Authority to complete the compliance review for the Microsoft Root Program. http://www.entrust.net/
DALLAS — July 11, 2012 — A continuation of years of leadership and innovation, Entrust, Inc. is the first public certification authority (CA) to be reviewed by a third party to comply with the technical requirements of the Microsoft Windows Root Certificate Program. Entrust also was the first CA to meet the standards set forth by WebTrust for CAs in 2001, then again for extended validation (EV) SSL certificates in 2007. The latter represented a critical shift in the verification process of SSL certificates and the strengthening of online security as a whole.
"This is yet another example of Entrust demonstrating its leadership as one of the most trusted CAs in the world," said Entrust Certificate Services general manager David Rockvam. "Entrust embraces its responsibilities as a global CA to help secure the Internet — and its various online channels, services and applications — via digital certificates."
As part of the new Microsoft requirements, Entrust met or exceeded 25 agreed-upon criteria in five specific categories. These categories include root certificate requirements with eight criteria; migration to 2048-bit RSA key strengths or greater with four criteria; additional security for intermediate end-entity certificates with five criteria; migration to more secure hash algorithms, such as SHA2, with three criteria; and CA practices regarding the operation of the certificate infrastructure with five criteria.
The third-party review, conducted by Deloitte & Touche, covered the periods from March 1, 2011, to February 29, 2012. CA audits or reviews typically are conducted each year to ensure proper industry standards and requirements are followed or maintained. The review was completed in accordance with guidelines published by the WebTrust organization.
Entrust Certificate Services provide organizations with SSL and specialty digital certificates that are proven, cost-effective and supported by standards-based technology. In January 2012, respected analyst firm Frost & Sullivan announced the findings of an in-depth market evaluation, identifying Entrust as the No. 2 provider of SSL digital certificates and services in the world.
