Entrust Demonstrates Enterprise-Wide Security Framework at 2012 FS-ISAC & BITS Annual Summit
DALLAS, May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Entrust Inc., a global leader of identity-based security solutions, will be demonstrating the award-winning software authentication platform, Entrust IdentityGuard, and the zero-touch fraud detection solution, TransactionGuard, during the 2012 FS-ISAC & BITS Annual Summit May 14-16 at the Turnberry Isle Hotel and Resort, Miami, Fla. Representatives from leading financial institutions around the world will meet to discuss today’s challenges, solutions and how the industry can work together to mitigate the latest cybersecurity and physical threat vectors.
Differentiated in deployment flexibility and agility, Entrust empowers organizations to build and modify security policies to immediately provision new authenticators and/or fraud models to defend against emerging attacks and risks.
“After enduring the management headaches of ‘stove-piped’ security solutions, FIs are now migrating to flexible platforms to not only support broad ranges of authenticators — including mobile and physical logical controls across diverse user groups — but also demanding the ability to provision and de-provision authentication and fraud policies within hours, or even minutes,” said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner.
Entrust security experts will be on hand — at Entrust Booth No. 37 — to demonstrate the benefits of a layered and extensible framework security approach, a proven method of combating today’s most advanced malware including ZeuS, SpyEye and Ice IX. This flexible combination of strong authentication, real-time fraud detection and out-of-band transaction verification provides FIs a cross-channel and cross-application layered security framework for protecting their client accounts and own internal data.
Entrust IdentityGuard, winner of SC Magazine’s 2012 ‘Best Multifactor Authentication Solution,’ offers the broadest range of authenticators on the market today, including smartcards and USB tokens, soft tokens, grid cards and eGrids, IP-geolocation, questions and answers, mobile smart credentials, out-of-band one-time passcode (delivered via voice, SMS or email), and a range of one-time-passcode tokens. Seamlessly integrated with Entrust TransactionGuard, the two solutions provide a collaborative fraud detection and strong authentication perfect for large banks, financial institutions and other monetary-dependent organizations.
