DALLAS — November 13, 2013 — Entrust, Inc., a world leader in securing digital identities and information, has been selected as a Reader Trust Award finalist in two categories for the SC Awards 2014, a competition which honors best-in-class security solutions and services as selected by a panel of SC Magazine readers. Entrust TransactionGuard and Entrust IdentityGuard have been recognized as top products in the “Best Fraud Protection Solution” and “Best Multifactor Solution” categories, respectively.

“It’s an honor to have been recognized by the SC Magazine awards for multiple years running, and it stands as a testament to Entrust’s products and solutions for the magazine’s readership to highlight the innovation and strength of our offerings once again,” said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. “With the ever-increasing number of cyberthreats targeting global and national financial institutions, coupled with regulatory and market pressures, it’s important that digital security continue to move into the spotlight. At Entrust, we are committed to bringing robust software platforms to these entities that fully leverage mobile technology to create comprehensive authentication solutions.”

Entrust TransactionGuard blends a number of approaches to form an integrated framework to help financial institutions detect, defend and adapt to the fast-paced fraud landscape. The zero-touch approach enables rapid deployment into complex environments, requires no invasive integration with banking applications, and does not impact the end-user experience.

Entrust’s flagship authentication solution, Entrust IdentityGuard, leads the industry as one of the most robust authentication and identity-assurance platforms. It delivers unmatched breadth of capabilities and flexibility to meet the most demanding security environments.

“Being named a finalist for a Reader Trust Award is truly noteworthy, because it reflects the opinions of real IT professionals and the solutions they use to address the network security problems that plague their companies on a daily basis,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “The SC Awards represent the best of the best in the information security industry and we look forward to recognizing the people and solutions our readers see as stand-outs.”
