MINNEAPOLIS—(March 1, 2018)—Entrust Datacard, a leading provider of trusted identity and secure transaction technology solutions, today announced that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment.
Entrust Datacard brings a deep expertise in trusted identities and transactions, with offerings in IoT, authentication, access, issuance, PKI and SSL. In the last year, the company has launched two cloud-based solutions. The IntelliTrust™ Authentication Service delivers high levels of authentication security in the cloud, and the ioTrust™ Security Solution establishes a secure by design connected ecosystem from device manufacturing through the entire IoT lifecycle.
Josh Jabs, VP Office of the CTO, and General Manager of IoT at Entrust Datacard says, “CSA is a leader in driving thought leadership across the security industry — not just in cloud-based architectures and concepts — but in emerging technologies such as IoT, blockchain and quantum-safe solutions. We look forward to engaging with CSA members and bringing our long-time leadership in identity and specialized expertise in IoT and other emerging areas to various working group efforts.”
Trusted identity flows through a digital business and establishes unique identity for the people, devices and applications that comprise the organization. Entrust Datacard technologies allow companies to do business in new ways and create the trusted products and experiences that consumers demand.
“We’re excited to welcome Entrust Datacard to the Cloud Security Alliance. Over the years, Entrust Datacard has been a leader in secure identities, and their recent work has demonstrated an innovative mindset and drive to leverage emerging technologies to better enable their customers,” says Jim Reavis, CEO of the Cloud Security Alliance.
