SeeZam, the 100% safe fortress for sensitive business information, grows and continues to confidently partner with Entrust for its Strong Authentication Solution to Solve a Three-Tiered Authentication Challenge

DALLAS — November 14, 2013 —  Luxemburg’s SeeZam S.A. has recently integrated the Systemat BeLux S.A. Group, a local cloud integrator in Belgium and Luxembourg, accelerating its development on an international level. SeeZam’s innovative online information service is secured by Entrust’s unique three-tiered authentication solution. Facilitated by the Entrust IdentityGuard software authentication platform, SeeZam’s security strategy uses a combination of authenticators to manage access to an online application that secures personal information, legal documents and other sensitive data for B2B and B2B2C purposes.

On October 24th in Belgium and November 14th in Luxembourg, the 250 CEOs from all business sectors attending Systemat’s Paradise IT events will receive a SeeZam virtual safety deposit box with an Entrust authenticator to boost awareness levels of this unique solution.

To safeguard information contained in the SeeZam e-Vault, Entrust IdentityGuard forms the foundation for a SeeZam-branded, three-tiered security infrastructure — public, confidential and secret. Each level is protected by a more advanced authenticator.

Currently, SeeZam’s public service tier offers simple, but secure, strong username and password capabilities. The next two dedicated SeeZam tiers — confidential and secret — are protected by grid cards and one-time-passcode (OTP) hardware tokens, respectively. The secret account type is unique in that it is designed to grant access to two named, trusted and authenticated individuals, in the event of an account holder’s death.

The Entrust-patented grid card is a credit card-sized authenticator consisting of numbers and characters in a row-column format. Upon login, users are presented with a coordinate challenge and must respond with the information in the corresponding cells from the unique grid card they possess. The authenticator is equally effective in consumer, banking, government or enterprise environments.

Entrust offers two versions of the popular OTP hardware token. The Entrust IdentityGuard Mini Token is OATH-compliant and generates a secure eight-digit passcode at the press of a button. The OATH-compliant Pocket Token offers additional features including PIN unlock prior to generating the passcode, in addition to a challenge-response mode.

Entrust IdentityGuard is an award-winning software authentication platform that helps financial institutions, governments and enterprises issue, manage and authenticate identities to safeguard physical, logical, mobile and cloud access. The solution integrates with today’s leading mobile platforms and is extensible for future requirements.

Entrust IdentityGuard offers the widest range of authenticators on the market — and all from a single, cost-effective platform. Entrust’s diverse set of authentication capabilities include 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), out-of-band transaction verification, biometrics and a range of one-time-passcode tokens.

SeeZam is revolutionizing the exchange of sensitive information by means of this real confidential space.
