Entrust IdentityGuard™

Ensuring trusted access for a connected and evolving digital world

Secure identity management has become a critical component of organizational security. This includes secure access to your private networks, applications and buildings. You also need to authenticate the identities of your users and their devices. But passwords are too vulnerable, and compromised credentials are one of the primary causes of serious and costly security breaches.

The complex technology models that have evolved over the last decade have transformed financial institutions, governments and enterprise—requiring new ways to reduce costs and improve user experiences and security across geographies and networks. Traditional two-factor authentication identity management has an excessively high total cost of ownership — and it frustrates users. The proliferation of applications, mobile workers and bring your own device environments is accelerating the problem.

Authentication technologies provide the best way for your organization to fight remote attacks, exploitation and attempts to take over your accounts. Entrust IdentityGuard offers a broad range of authentication solutions built on decades of identity management and security expertise to help organizations like yours provide strong security and trusted access.

Top 5 Reasons Why Mobile Will Transform Enterprise Authentication

The mobile device is part and parcel of daily life. It’s fundamentally changed the way consumers behave, and this influence has spread to the enterprise sector as well. For instance, patron‑owned mobile devices have largely helped pave the way for the widespread emergence of bring-your-own‑device (BYOD) policies. Ten years ago, the idea of a company employee logging into the enterprise system while they’re on an airplane over the Atlantic would seem far‑fetched, but today such behavior is relatively commonplace. Mobility is changing how we shop, work and live our daily lives. Mobile is transforming Enterprise Authentication.
