    PT Bank Mandiri's deployment leverages Entrust IdentityGuard, Entrust
    Entelligence Group Share

    DALLAS, Nov. 14 /CNW/ -- The ability to seamlessly implement security
solutions in strategic layers is quickly becoming the standard for
organizations seeking cost-efficient methods of protecting digital identities
and information. The Hong Kong branch of PT Bank Mandiri, one of Indonesia's
largest financial institutions, chose Entrust, Inc. (Nasdaq:   ENTU) to address
their security challenges. The bank will deploy the Entrust IdentityGuard
versatile authentication platform and the Entrust Entelligence Group Share
network folder encryption solution, which are key components of a layered
security model.
    "The sensitive information of our customers, as well as our own
intellectual property, is one of our most valuable assets," said PT Bank
Mandiri MIS manager Richard Yiu. "Understanding the need to protect these
identities and information, the Hong Kong branch of PT Bank Mandiri sought
easy-to-use solutions that would help authenticate users and encrypt vital
files, folders or networks. Entrust offered a complete package that could be
implemented seamlessly within our existing environment."
    PT Bank Mandiri elected to deploy Entrust IdentityGuard to secure remote
access to corporate resources. To help protect the loss or misuse of sensitive
corporate data, PT Bank Mandiri will leverage the Entrust Entelligence Group
Share network folder encryption solution, which is based on patented
client-server architecture. The easy-to-use solution enables enterprises to
implement transparent and automatic network folder encryption that can provide
streamlined audit capabilities, centralized management and can be deployed in
a variety of different environments.
    "Organizations require easy-to-use solutions that can help them secure
sensitive information or intellectual property, as well as facilitate online
transactions in a safe, secure manner," said Entrust Chairman, President and
Chief Executive Officer Bill Conner. "Leveraging the capabilities of several
solutions as part of a layered security model helps promote efficiency and
cost-effectiveness, and also instills an invaluable peace of mind for
consumers and organizations alike."
    With more than 9.2 million licenses in use today, Entrust IdentityGuard
is an open versatile authentication platform that 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 username and password, IP-geolocation,
machine/device, questions and answers, out-of-band one-time passcode
(delivered via voice, SMS or e-mail), grid cards and a range of
one-time-password tokens.
    Entrust IdentityGuard can help organizations minimize operational
challenges such as burdens to help desks and infrastructure maintenance. It
includes a complete Web-based administration capability for user and policy
management, enabling organizations to easily distribute administrative tasks
to the right individuals, all based on role.
    To promote efficiency and interoperability, Entrust Entelligence Group
Share can extend outside the enterprise to allow the transfer and
collaboration of information and sensitive data with partners, suppliers and
select third parties, as needed. By granting specific parties access, Entrust
Entelligence Group Share allows the collaboration of vital business assets
without comprising security.
    One of Indonesia's largest banks, Bank Mandiri employs 21,379 employees
and operates 924 branches, including six subsidiaries overseas. The
organization's distribution network consists of 13,300 ATMs, as well as
electronic channels such as Internet and SMS banking. The Hong Kong branch is
principally engaged in deposits, trade services and commercial lending.
