Entrust Deploys E-mail Encryption for Top-50 U.K. Law Firm

    Charles Russell sought trusted vendor with proven standards-based,
    PKI-embedded capability

    DALLAS, Aug. 15 /CNW/ -- Charles Russell, a U.K.-based law practice,
heard the resounding requests from their customers and clients: provide
seamless e-mail encryption to protect sensitive data. In response, the top-50
law firm looked to Entrust (Nasdaq: ENTU) and the Entrust Entelligence
Messaging Server, a key component of a strong, layered security strategy.
    Leveraging Entrust Entelligence Messaging Server, Charles Russell is now
able to provide its customers full encryption for e-mails containing sensitive
data. Further, those clients can benefit from e-mail encryption regardless of
their own capabilities. To streamline protocol, the firm will place e-mail
encryption policy management in the hands of the organization's IT department,
freeing lawyers from the burden of encrypting confidential information during
electronic communication.
    "In an industry that is constantly viewing, storing and managing
extremely sensitive client information, the ability to seamlessly encrypt
e-mails will increase efficiency and help guarantee compliance with regulatory
mandates," said Charles Russell IT Director Jon Gould. "Not only did Entrust's
e-mail encryption solution solve our security requirements, but their
reputation and expertise in this field only confirmed our decision."
    A testament to Entrust's heritage, Charles Russell was attracted to the
standards-based credential management technology within Entrust Entelligence
Messaging Server. The solution automates harvesting of certificate
credentials, and boundary deployment eliminates lawyer intervention, one of
the initial requirements of the firm. As a standards-based credential
management solution, Entrust Entelligence Messaging Server delivers a
technology that can evolve as the practice's security goals change over time.
    "For an organization whose business revolves entirely around sensitive or
private information, seamless e-mail encryption is a much-needed asset," said
Entrust Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Conner. "A key
component of a strategic layered security approach, Entrust Entelligence
Messaging Server will afford Charles Russell clients, and its workforce, an
