Entrust has combined its IdentityGuard cloud services into a single platform.
Now combining SSL, discovery, smart credentials, PKI and device certificates, the IdentityGuard allows users to go to a common place with different accessible services, according to Jay Schiavo, director of products and markets at Entrust.
He said: “This is now a unified platform and the product solution has set the services together and we are responding to request for service. This is a common set of applications and the main function is single sign-on to manage SSL certificates, and it is one place to log on and for the provision of the service.”
Schiavo told IT Security Guru that users requested that all services should be unified and especially for certificate authorities. In the future the company plans to introduce mobile certificates to the service, while the current offering will tell a user when a certificate is set to expire via the discovery service.
David Wagner, president of Entrust, said: “Organisations often deploy separate, disparate point solutions that result in difficult, time-consuming and expensive deployment and management. By consolidating identity management in the cloud, the Entrust solution helps reduce expenses, deployment challenges and management headaches that stem from legacy security solutions and techniques.”
