Entrust Adds Valuable Partner, Enters Bangladesh Market

Tusuka Technotrade Limited to serve as value-added reseller in southern Asia

DALLAS, Feb. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Entrust, Inc., a world leader in securing digital identities and information, announces a new partnership with Tusuka Technotrade Limited (TTL) of Bangladesh. The agreement will focus on providing identity-based security solutions in the government, financial and enterprise verticals.

“Bangladesh is one of the world’s emerging markets and Tusuka Technotrade Limited will prove a valuable asset as we help organizations in the country deploy identity-based security solutions,” said Entrust President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Conner. “Their expertise of the market and local technology needs will help place Entrust solutions top-of-mind when organizations are faced with difficult security challenges.”

Bangladesh is one of the “Next Eleven” economies, which is a collection of countries noted by Goldman Sachs for having the highest potential of becoming one of the world’s largest economies in the 21st century. They are joined in the Next Eleven by Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, Turkey and Vietnam — half of which Entrust currently has a market presence.

“This partnership will give us a tremendous opportunity to jointly increase the footprint of efficient security and identity management solutions in Bangladesh,” said TTL chairman Mr. Faisal Chowdhury.
