S&T Group Selects Entrust PKI for Implementation



    
    S&T, an Entrust Trusted Partner, to deploy PKI for 3100 employees

    
    DALLAS, Aug. 28 /CNW/ -- Austrian-based S&T Group has been one of the
most valuable partners for Entrust, Inc. (Nasdaq:   ENTU) in Europe and the
Asia-Pacific region. A value-added reseller of Entrust solutions, S&T opted to
internally deploy the same proven security technology it sells to its elite
customer base -- specifically Entrust's public key infrastructure (PKI) and
complementary solutions -- to enable authentication to corporate assets,
encryption of sensitive information and the use of digital signatures to help
verify identities.

    "S&T has implemented Entrust solutions for years -- for a number of
high-profile customers across the globe -- with great success," said S&T Chief
Executive Officer Christian Rosner. "When it came time for us to deploy our
own PKI, it only made sense to choose the same solution that we sell, support
and is trusted by our own customers."
    With a need to secure more than 3,100 employees, the S&T Group will
deploy Entrust Authority PKI to enable internal encryption, authentication and
the use of digital signatures. Entrust Authority Security Manager and Entrust
Entelligence Security Provider will be leveraged to manage various aspect of
the infrastructure for authentication to desktops and applications, as well as
secure e-mail communication.
    "Particularly in the government space, S&T is one of our most respected
vendors," said Entrust Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Bill
Conner. "We appreciate S&T offering our solutions to their customers and for
believing in Entrust PKI so much they standardized on it for their own
internal security. This statement serves as a resounding testament to the
platform's scalability, reliability and performance."
    Entrust Authority Security Manager, an industry leading public key
infrastructure (PKI), is designed to manage the digital keys and certificates
