Entrust Datacard Integrates with Citrix Mobility Solution to Empower Mobile

Integration between Entrust IdentityGuard authentication and credential management capabilities with XenMobile enable secure anytime-anywhere productivity for the mobile workforce

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.—(June 08, 2015)—Entrust Datacard announced it is working with Citrix, a leader in mobile workplaces, to drive productivity and enhance security for the rapidly growing mobile workforce. Entrust Datacard is debuting new integrations with XenMobile®, a comprehensive enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution developed by Citrix, to provide a trusted mobile identity to secure access to sensitive data and corporate information – truly enabling mobile as the new desktop.

The integrations combine the authentication and credential management strengths of Entrust IdentityGuard software with XenMobile’s business optimized mobile productivity apps to deliver secure and frictionless access for the mobile worker and ease the onboarding process for commercial and government organizations. 

“Employees want more flexibility including the ability to access organizational resources directly from their mobile devices,” said Josh Jabs, vice president of strategy at Entrust Datacard. “Organizations realize that enabling employees with seamless access to enterprise resources not only satisfies employee demand, but also improves productivity.  As such, businesses and IT service organizations know they need to build a strategy around enabling mobile as the primary computing environment. But, the challenge then becomes enabling this environment in a cost-effective and user-friendly manner, without sacrificing security.”

With the new integration, mobile workers will no longer need to manage multiple passwords and separate log-ins.  Instead, users can have a more simplified sign-on and a streamlined user experience. The integration transforms the mobile device into a universal mobile credential, creating a single-sign-on process that replaces multiple smart cards, one-time-passcodes, PINs and passwords.

This can all be done by leveraging enterprises’ existing and underlying architectures – including policies put into place by IT departments, as well as credentials that workers already use to access their PC desktop environment. This simplifies the process and minimizes operational costs, ultimately protecting investments. 

The Entrust IdentityGuard software secures mobile identities, application access and transactions with a range of embedded credentials, such as digital certificates and simplifies the mobile application deployment process by tying into current identity and access management infrastructure.  The solution also meets regulatory standards, including FIPS-201 and NIST 800-157, for the issuance of derived credentials. By controlling access to applications with authentication of both the mobile device and the user, organizations can confidently offer mobile access.

 The proliferation of devices and the mobility of today’s workforce are driving seismic change in the industry,” said Manoj Raisinghani, vice president of product marketing, Mobile Platforms group, Citrix. “The integration between Entrust Datacard and XenMobile will provide enhanced authentication and credential management capabilities to our customers, empowering them to improve security and flexibility, streamline processes, and enhance productivity while being mobile.”

As a Citrix Ready® partner, Entrust Datacard is joining other experts and thought leaders at the Citrix Mobility 2015 Conference this week in Washington D.C.; as well as participated at the recent Citrix Synergy 2015 – sharing insights and innovations and defining direction for the future of the mobile workspace.
