Strong Authentication for Physical & Logical Access Security
With the evolution of smartcard technology, enterprises can integrate two security environments — physical and logical access — to provide consolidated management, improved ROI and a total security view.
Entrust is distinct in being able to bring together all of the elements necessary for physical and logical access solutions — on a single software platform — and provide the PKI to issue and manage digital certificates that are deployed to smartcards, mobile devices or USBs, and distributed to end-users.Request to be Contacted
Securing multiple access points — wireless, VPN, desktops and facilities, for example — by relying on separate, often incompatible solutions is expensive, inconvenient for end-users and difficult for administrators to manage.
With the evolution of smartcard technology, enterprises can integrate two security environments — physical and logical access — to provide consolidated management, improved ROI and a total security view. Organizations can also deploy a single strong authentication platform to facilitate enrollment, issuance and management, providing further efficiencies.
By leveraging a software-based platform approach, organizations can consolidate all authentication processes with a single, proven solution — Entrust IdentityGuard.
Whether it’s a smartcard or mobile smart credential for physical/logical access, or a unique grid card for strong authentication to a VPN, Entrust IdentityGuard is one of the most versatile authentication platforms available. It allows organizations to deploy the right authenticator to different user groups based on the amount of associated risk, access requirements, unique user needs and cost.
By managing the full lifecycles of digital certificate-based identities, Entrust Authority PKI enables encryption, digital signature and certificate authentication capabilities to be consistently and transparently applied across a broad range of applications and platforms.
This helps streamline the authentication of digital identities, particularly during the convergence of physical and logical access systems. Plus, these capabilities can be achieved by implementing a dedicated in-house PKI environment, or by partnering with Entrust to host, manage and maintain your PKI offsite.
Entrust’s innovative mobile application transforms a mobile device into a virtual smartcard, eliminating the need for physical smartcards or hardware-based one-time passcodes (OTP).
The most advanced approach to physical and logical access convergence, mobile-based multipurpose credentials securely access computer workstations, network resources, data, cloud applications, physical doors or buildings, and also enable users to digitally sign transactions and encrypt data.
