Entrust brings strong authentication to mobile devices
With the newest release of Entrust IdentityGuard, Entrust will add the innovative Entrust IdentityGuard Mobile application, which seamlessly authenticates consumer, corporate or enterprise users using many of today’s smartphones.
A key addition to the Entrust IdentityGuard versatile authentication platform, Entrust IdentityGuard Mobile is a new mobile identity application that allows organizations to strongly authenticate users via a smartphone device.
Leveraging secure out-of-band techniques, and without requiring any specialized hardware, Entrust IdentityGuard Mobile helps defeat the latest malware threat affecting online-banking users – man-in-the-browser. And while it’s proven to do just that, it is equally effective as a strong authentication capability for enterprise VPN access, Web portal access or corporate desktop security. Helpful options include the ability to store and save transaction history, as well as enabling deploying organizations to easily incorporate their brand into the application.
Entrust IdentityGuard Mobile is designed to operate with the Apple iPhone, RIM BlackBerry, Microsoft Windows Mobile and Symbian (Java). The new mobile authenticator will be available in summer 2010 as part of the release of Entrust IdentityGuard 9.3.
