DataCard Corporation Key Developments

Entrust Datacard Announces the Introduction of a New Push Authentication Capability in its Entrust IdentityGuard Mobile Platform

Entrust Datacard announced the introduction of a new push authentication capability in its Entrust IdentityGuard Mobile platform that allows authorized users to more easily and securely access VPNs and websites with their mobile phones or tablets. Instead of introducing another easily misplaced or forgotten hardware token, introducing complex passwords or series of security questions, the new IdentityGuard Mobile push authentication sets up a secure session using a mobile device by instantly pushing alerts to the users to verify login right as they access their VPN network. With a simple “OK” acknowledgement from the user, the VPN or website access is securely established – making it much faster and more convenient to authenticate users and secure the connection. While the user experience is incredibly simple, the new feature is rooted in Entrust Datacard’s most advanced approach to defeating account takeover attacks. Adopting this new mobile-enabled push notification approach allows enterprises to evolve from older, less secure methods that rely on usernames, passwords and hardware tokens. In addition, it reduces IT cost and complexity by eliminating the need to purchase dedicated and often costly hardware tokens, as well as simplifies user provisioning and management because users already know how to download and upgrade mobile applications. Mobile push authentication is a key element of the Entrust IdentityGuard enterprise authentication platform, which is designed for flexibility and scalability. Organizations can deploy the platform for their uses today, and then as requirements change or new threats emerge, Entrust Datacard customers can quickly scale up capacity or deploy new technologies by simply unlocking new functionality through the platform. IdentityGuard Mobile Push Authentication is part of the latest release of the IdentityGuard platform that includes a number of innovative capabilities to help banks and other enterprise customers address their identity based security needs. Specifically, the IdentityGuard platform now supports both QR code-based transaction verification and the recently introduced Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) 3.0. QR Code-based verification provides banking customers a strong and convenient mobile-based approach that eliminates the need for dedicated hardware such as EMV CAP readers or pocket tokens. Additionally, support for Microsoft ADFS 3.0 allows IdentityGuard mobile two-factor authentication to be extended to all cloud-based enterprise applications that leverage ADFS 3.0.

Entrust Datacard Announces Datacard TruCredential Suite Software

Entrust Datacard announced the new Datacard TruCredential Suite Software which is designed to help organizations of all sizes deploy a secure ID program that meets a wide range of application requirements from basic photo IDs to high-assurance credentials. The new software suite can be used to issue a variety of credentials such as student, faculty or visitor IDs; employee or contract badges; patient and staff healthcare IDs; credentials for local government programs; membership and customer loyalty cards; and transit passes. Available in four editions that allow organizations to easily scale from a single workstation to a multi-station, enterprise-wide application without increasing complexity the TruCredential Suite offers a combination of functionalities. These include pre-configured card design templates that can be easily customized to develop unique designs; enrollment and data capture capabilities with support for QR code, photo and signature devices for capturing physical and logical cardholder data; workflow tools for reduced set-up time; enterprise integration including physical access control system (PACS) interfaces; and smart card encoding support to drive operational efficiencies.
