Entrust's Versatile Authentication Platform Chosen for Russian Internet Giant



    
    Platform's affordable cost, ease of use cited as differentiators in deal

    
    DALLAS, Aug. 13 /CNW/ -- Confidence in transactions is a cornerstone of
the online channel. Ensuring that thoroughfare of information is secure is of
utmost concern, particularly in markets or countries where fewer secure
infrastructures exist. To overcome these challenges, Yandex.Money
(money.yandex.ru) selected Entrust, Inc. (Nasdaq:   ENTU) and the Entrust
IdentityGuard versatile authentication platform.
    Facilitated by valued partner Rainbow Technologies Components and Systems
(RTCS, http://www.rainbow.msk.ru), Yandex.Money will use Entrust
IdentityGuard. Yandex.Money, one of the largest Internet portals in Russia,
cited the versatility of the platform and the simplicity of implementing
different authenticators.
    Founded in 2002, Yandex.Money is one of the premier online payments
systems in Russia, as well as the largest media partner in Russia for foreign
merchants and retailers.
    Entrust IdentityGuard enables organizations to layer security --
according to access requirements or the risk of a given transaction -- across
diverse users and applications. The platform's authentication options include
username and password, IP-geolocation, machine/device, questions and answers,
out-of-band one-time passcode (delivered via voice, SMS or e-mail), grid cards
and a range of low priced one-time-passcode tokens. Entrust IdentityGuard also
provides multiple methods of supporting mutual authentication, including
picture and caption replay.
    Entrust IdentityGuard minimizes operational challenges such as burdens to
help desks and infrastructure maintenance. It includes a complete Web-based
administration capability for user and policy management, enabling
organizations to easily distribute administrative tasks to the right
individuals, all based on role.
    In operation for more than 10 years, Yandex is a leading Russian Internet
portal that provides a full spectrum of Web services, including free e-mail,
news, dictionaries, maps and more. The site welcomes more than 30 million
visitors each month.
