    DALLAS, Sept. 6 /CNW/ -- The Entrust GetAccess(TM) solution has always
been a leader in providing highly secure, scalable Web single sign-on (SSO)
capabilities to some of the world's largest and most demanding Web sites. Now,
with Entrust's (Nasdaq:   ENTU) release of the Entrust GetAccess 8.0 product,
deploying organizations can take advantage of seamless integration with the
award-winning Entrust(R) IdentityGuard versatile authentication platform.
    A key component of a layered consumer security strategy, Entrust
GetAccess 8.0 software can provide organizations with the ultimate in
authentication flexibility by now supporting the full platform of multifactor
authentication capabilities found in the Entrust IdentityGuard solution.
Centrally controlled via policy, organizations can seamlessly protect
sensitive applications and data with a wide range of authenticators, including
machine, knowledge-based questions, grid cards, various one-time-passcode
(OTP) hardware tokens, as well as out-of-band OTP via voice, SMS or e-mail.
    "Particularly as part of a layered security model, versatile
authentication is a critical capability for any security-conscious
organization. Now that Entrust GetAccess 8.0 can natively leverage Entrust
IdentityGuard -- our market-leading versatile authentication platform -- the
result will be more secure and streamlined online experiences for end-users,"
said Entrust Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Conner.
    A proven, scalable Web access control solution, Entrust GetAccess 8.0
also includes the ability to step up authentication based on the risk or
sensitivity of a transaction. Leveraging a single native policy interface,
organizations can choose from the wide range Entrust IdentityGuard multifactor
authentication capabilities to dynamically protect access to sensitive online
resources. Combined with increased performance, Entrust GetAccess 8.0 provides
global organizations with a high-performance, standards-based solution for
protecting their online presence.
    Underpinned by Entrust's active role in the evolution of federation
technologies, Entrust GetAccess 8.0 solution includes support for SAML 2.0,
enabling commercial and government enterprises to easily share identities
across different Web properties. Combined with robust standards-based policy
(via XACML), Entrust GetAccess software can enable central management of
access to multiple applications through a single portal, providing users with
single sign-on to the applications and content they are authorized to see.
    With the broadest support for Entrust IdentityGuard multifactor
authenticators, flexible roles, rules-based access control and proven
performance supporting many multimillion-user deployments, Entrust GetAccess
8.0 solution can help enable organizations in reducing administration costs
while driving more services through Web portals.
    Entrust IdentityGuard is an open versatile authentication platform that
enables enterprises to layer security -- according to the risk of a given
transaction -- across diverse users and applications. It is a common-sense
approach to strong authentication that allows organizations to apply the
proper level of authentication tailored to the assessed risk for the access or
transaction that the user is performing. Entrust IdentityGuard authentication
options include one-time-password tokens, grid card, biometrics, questions and
answers, out-of-band and mutual authentication.
