Entrust Addresses Convergence of Physical and Logical Authentication Systems During Leading Smartcard and Payment Event in the Middle East

DALLAS, May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Entrust Inc. cybersecurity expert Jeremy Boorer will address attendees of Cards & Payments Middle East May 16th at 12.00pm local time at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Center, UAE. Boorer’s presentation will highlight trends in the convergence of two-factor authentication systems with physical access control systems inside the organization.

Traditionally, physical access has provided authorized admission to buildings, while logical access provides access to networks. Increasingly, organizations are looking to a single platform that may be deployed to solve one or both of these access control challenges.

Entrust will explore the benefits of  a new standard for physical and logical access control for effective enterprise authentication, where an integrated platform approach can simplify the issuance and management of smartcards and certificates, leveraging industry standards, all from a single trusted vendor.

Boorer, who has worked at Entrust since 2004, is as territory manager for the Middle East and Africa. A respected security software expert, Boorer discusses, advises and helps governments and financial institutions, throughout the 77 countries that make up his region, with projects such as electronic passports, national ID programs, federated identity and credentialing. Boorer’s expertise helps solve the complex issues of enrollment, validation and issuance of secure identities in various and large citizen-centric deployments.
