From Consumer Gadget to Business Tool - Entrust Helps iPhone Become All-In-One Device



    Entrust enables secure, authenticated access to an organization's
corporate network via popular smartphone

    DALLAS, June 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Carrying too many electronic
devices or smartphones? Consolidate your digital tethers and simplify your
life. Entrust, Inc., a global leader in securing digital identities and
information, now offers solutions to seamlessly and securely connect to your
organization's corporate network via the popular Apple iPhone, possibly
eliminating the need for a business-only communication device.

    "Entrust's mission is to enable users through affordable, convenient
security solutions," said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "Smartphones,
including the iPhone, are ubiquitous in enterprise environments. We want to
take advantage of this technology to safeguard corporate information and
intellectual property, but also make the lives of end-users easier and more
efficient. This unique solution helps to do just that."

    Compatible with the latest iPhone operating system, Entrust enterprise
customers can use their existing X.509 digital certificates for strong remote
access authentication via the built-in Cisco IPSec VPN client. This
combination helps provide  a high level of IP-based encryption for
transmission of sensitive company information. Employees can authenticate via
password, two-factor token or digital certificate. iPhone also supports WPA2
Enterprise with 802.1X authentication -- the standard for Wi-Fi network
protection.

    Entrust also delivers a wide range of strong authentication capabilities
that are designed to operate with the iPhone. These include out-of-band OTP
transaction authentication via SMS, voice, or email; SMS soft tokens; as well
as Entrust's unique eGrid solution that can easily be stored and viewed on the
iPhone's screen.

    This ability, combined with the iPhone's native support of Microsoft(R)
Exchange(R) for enterprise e-mail communication, Microsoft(R) Office(R) (view
Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents) and Adobe(R) PDFs, transforms the iPhone
into one of today's most versatile devices that is equally productive in both
consumer and enterprise environments.

    In fact, a November 2008 J.D. Power and Associates study ranked the Apple
iPhone No. 1 in overall customer satisfaction among enterprise smartphones
users -- even topping the popular RIM BlackBerry. Additional iPhone enterprise
applications include push e-mail, push contacts, push calendar, Global Address
List (GAL) support, certificates and identities, WPA2/802.1X, enforced
security policies, VPN protocols, device configuration and remote wipe as an
additional security precaution.

    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
strong username and password, IP-geolocation, device profiling, questions and
answers, digital certificates, out-of-band one-time passcode (delivered via
voice, SMS or e-mail), grid cards, SMS soft tokens, eGrid cards and a range of
one-time-passcode tokens. Entrust IdentityGuard also provides multiple methods
of supporting mutual authentication, including picture and caption replay.
