MINNEAPOLIS—(April 17, 2018)—Entrust Datacard, a leading provider of trusted identity and secure transaction technology solutions, today announced that the company has earned Frost and Sullivan 2018 North American Adaptive Authentication Technology Leadership Award for its IntelliTrust authentication solution.
Frost & Sullivan Best Practice Awards recognize companies in a variety of markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Recognized companies consistently invest in innovation, enabling them to create a distinctive position within their industries.
“We’re honored to be selected by Frost & Sullivan as the winner of the North American Adaptive Authentication Technology Leadership Award,” said Ryan Zlockie, global vice president of authentication for Entrust Datacard. “Market and user expectations have evolved significantly over the past few years with a focus on improving both security and the user experience. We’re committed to transforming authentication beyond just two-factor.”
Zlockie continues, “We continually create and leverage new technologies that improve the overall security and experience from initial user and device onboarding to seamless authentication and continuous security monitoring. We believe authentication should be intelligent and secure without excessive factors and friction that can frustrate the user. Which is why we’re driven to take the “F” — factors, friction and frustration — out of authentication.”
Entrust Datacard launched its authentication cloud service in June 2016. This adaptive authentication solution enables rapid, secure access to cloud, mobile and legacy applications in the government, financial, and enterprise spaces. The IntelliTrust solution leverages the low touch deployment aspects of the cloud with new levels of intelligent identity for users and devices using single sign-on (SSO) capabilities to provide a seamless user experience with strong security in an easy-to-deploy model.
Key features of the IntelliTrust authentication solution:
- Frictionless Authentication - A rich set of modern authentication capabilities such as soft tokens, mobile smart credentials, adaptive authentication, biometrics, and device reputation ensure a strong and frictionless experience.
- Flexible Provisioning - The ability to match authentication strength to different user profiles based on business needs provides flexibility and control.
- Seamless Conditional Access - Native access management capabilities enable access to 1) authorize enforcement around who can access what applications under which conditions and 2) single sign-on that streamlines the user experience.
- Secure, Streamlined and Simple Integrations – Out of the box support benefits standards-based applications as well as on-premise application integrations.
