Collaboration with MDM partner empowers clients to better manage digital
identities on mobile devices
DALLAS, Feb. 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Leading identity-based security solutions
provider Entrust, Inc. and enterprise mobile management partner AirWatch will exhibit and address attendees at the 2013 Mobile World Congress
Feb. 25-28 in Barcelona, Spain.
"Mobile has the power to change identity and offers significant
opportunity to today's enterprise," said Entrust President and CEO Bill
Conner. "Mobile security should not create barriers. Rather, effective mobile
security allows companies to leverage mobile devices to improve
productivity and efficiency, while also providing a higher standard of
security for both logical, physical and cloud environments."
Entrust began its strategic relationship with AirWatch in February 2012 to advance access for Entrust PKI,
Managed Service and Entrust IdentityGuard users who can then leverage
AirWatch's Software as a Service (SaaS) appliance-based or on-premise
solutions. The integrated solution between AirWatch's Enterprise mobile
device management solution and Entrust IdentityGuard Cloud allows
AirWatch customers to easily manage digital identities on mobile
This integration also enables organizations to leverage digital
certificates for Wi-Fi and VPN authentication via AirWatch's simple
device enrollment process. Hundreds of mobile devices — including Apple
iOS, Google Android, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile — are authenticated
via Entrust's shared certification authority (CA).
Mark Reeves, Entrust's senior vice president of international sales, will take part
in a panel discussion on Feb. 25, which will focus on mobile security
in the enterprise. In this discussion, Reeves will address the top
security challenges companies face as they develop mobility strategies
and expand their mobile footprint.
At Mobile World Congress 2013, CEOs of the world's most influential
companies, along with more than 1,500 of the industry's leading
suppliers of mobile devices, services and technologies, will share
their visions of the mobile landscape. Last year's conference was its
