Entrust IdentityGuard leveraged to secure firm's online investment
DALLAS, Aug. 7 /CNW/ -- The challenge of implementing strong online
security at a cost-effective price is not unique. For India's FCH Centrum
Wealth Managers Limited, the goal is to implement a solution that helps
protect the digital identities of their customers, reduces phishing attacks
and secures personal information when using the company's online resources.
They selected Entrust, Inc. (Nasdaq: ENTU) and the Entrust IdentityGuard
versatile authentication platform, including the solution's cost-effective
grid card authenticator.
"In order to protect our customer base from online phishing and secure
their identities, we sought an easy-to-use, simple-to-deploy authentication
solution," said FCH Centrum Executive Director "Entrust's multifactor
authentication capabilities are cost-efficient, easy to deploy and provide the
strong second factor of security that we sought for our online customers."
With Entrust IdentityGuard, customers will have the option of using the
strong authenticator without incurring additional costs. The grid cards are
easy to print, distribute and can even be e-mailed should an organization
choose to do so. The platform's versatility will allow FCH Centrum to deploy
any of 10 proven authenticators to help verify the identities of a wide range
of user types.

versatile authentication platform -- a multifactor authentication solution for
mass audiences -- is a sound, proven method," said Entrust Chairman, President
and Chief Executive Officer Bill Conner. "FCH Centrum recognized an
opportunity to secure their customers without sacrificing cost or ease of use
within their online application. With the widest selection of authenticators
from a single platform, Entrust IdentityGuard also can be scaled to easily
adapt to future security challenges as FCH Centrum's needs evolve."
