Entrust Expands Strong Authentication Platform

IdentityGuard now compatible with Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008

DALLAS, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- More organizations than ever before are now able to deploy the Entrust, Inc., versatile authentication platform, designed to protect access to Microsoft Windows desktops and servers. Considered as one of the most flexible authentication solutions on the market today, the Entrust IdentityGuard solution is now compatible with Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 -- all built on Entrust's exceptional support for Microsoft Windows XP.

"This expanded support is about providing more and more organizations with a proven solution that is capable of addressing current and future authentication needs -- regardless of the operating systems within their environment," said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "As a result, Entrust IdentityGuard is now designed to operate on more than 90 percent of the world's Microsoft Windows desktops allowing those users the ability to benefit from the solution's demonstrated authentication capabilities."

The Entrust IdentityGuard for Microsoft Windows desktop client enables organizations to deploy strong multifactor authentication for end-user access to enterprise machines. Whether users are accessing the desktop while online or offline, Entrust provides a number of strong authentication choices, which range from Entrust's patented grid card to one-time-passcode (OTP) tokens.

Entrust IdentityGuard enables organizations to layer security -- according to access requirements or the risk of a given transaction -- across diverse users and applications. Entrust's authentication capabilities include username and password, IP-geolocation, device, questions and answers, out-of-band one-time passcode (delivered via voice, SMS or e-mail), grid and eGrid cards, digital certificates (in software or on smart cards/USB tokens) and a range of one-time-passcode tokens, including Entrust IdentityGuard Mobile.
