Entrust Advances Methods for Secure Third-Party Communication
Security expert adds new features, popular capabilities to enterprise security platform
"As hard as organizations work to maintain proper internal security protocol, industry compliance and government mandates often dictate that securing external communication channels is just as important," said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "From simple right-click encryption to the self-signed digital IDs, we saw a need for straightforward methods of secure communication with parties outside an organization's core network."
This release represents an important point on Entrust's technology roadmap for the popular enterprise security solutions. As the key management system for all digital certificates, this solution now includes enhanced capabilities and is evolving with customer usage as they migrate to new operating systems.
Comprehensive OS Support
With the introduction of 32- and 64-bit compatibility for Microsoft Windows 7, Entrust Entelligence Security Provider is now designed to operate with many of today's most popular platforms, including Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista.
Entrust Entelligence Solo enables a user to generate a self-signed digital ID to securely communicate with other Solo or Entrust enterprise users via encrypted e-mail or file exchange. The Solo module allows Entrust Entelligence Security Provider 9.1 customers to extend their existing security solution to their partners — all without having to install any additional software in their environment. The Entrust Entelligence Solo solution is also capable of providing digital signature and verification functions, as well as self-extracting password encryption.
To streamline encryption to trusted third parties, Entrust Entelligence Security Provider 9.1 now provides easy-to-use password encryption. As simple as the name implies, a user right-clicks to encrypt a document via a password rather than a digital certificate. This represents an effective means of one-way encryption to third parties, designed to improve efficiencies by saving time and resources.
A value-added feature of the new release, TrueDelete provides Entrust Entelligence Security Provider 9.1 users with true overwrite protection. By knowing that information is properly overwritten and undecipherable if recovered, users now have the ability to delete files with added confidence. With right-click functionality, TrueDelete uses 12 different overwrite methods as a means of verifying that deleted information cannot be retrieved. The process can be manual or automated, or may be used to securely delete source files during encryption.
For users that need trusted verification of document creation or alteration, the Entrust Entelligence Security Provider 9.1 time-stamping feature affords the ability to create and verify S/MIME time stamps through a trusted third-party time-stamp server. This provides non-repudiation that files haven't been changed beyond the established date.
For users that rely on customization, Entrust provides a script for command-line encryption. Simply use script language to automate encryption and signing activities on files.
