Digital Certificates on Your Phone?

September 9, 2013 by Matthew Lewis     No Comments

It’s not a Peyton Manning TV spot, but it’s certainly more important to the security of your identities. In Entrust’s recent infographic, “Mobile Security: Perception vs. Reality,” a third-party study found that 38 percent of enterprises have or plan to implement mobile device certificates in 2013. But there is also the myth that certificate-based identities are hard to deploy and manage. Quite simply, that’s not the case.

Mobile Certificate Based SecurityMany mobile and security software vendors are able to integrate solutions to transparently provision and manage digital identities for mobile devices.

For example, Entrust and AirWatch help organizations transparently enable strong authentication of devices and people to networks, enabling secure email and providing access to secure containers on the devices, among other things.

Want to see how it’s done? Entrust will be on hand for AirWatch Connect, September 9-12, at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta. We’ll show you how mobile device management and integration, and respective device certificates, can provide some very cool capabilities.

Visit Entrust at Booth 305, or catch the presentation in the Mobility Theatre, on Tuesday, Sept. 10, at  1:40 p.m. EDT.
