"The key factor that makes Entrust and the IdentityGuard visionary is the ideology that multifactor authentication does not have to be complicated to manage or expensive to implement. With inexpensive custom-made grid cards and tokens that cost only about $5 a piece, we expect to see IdentityGuard in more places very soon."
SC Magazine Best Buy Award
"The Entrust IdentityGuard entry was a unique offering for two-factor authentication ... At $8.00 per user, the pricing for the Entrust IdentityGuard is at the extreme low end of products in the Group Test. This makes the value for the money superior and contributed considerably to our Best Buy award."
Info Security Best Deployment — Authentication: Bank of New Zealand
Other two-factor authentication options were considered, but the Bank of New Zealand chose the Entrust IdentityGuard versatile authentication platform based on its ease of use, mobility and convenience for customers. An added bonus was the significantly lower cost-per-user, which helped enable the bank to provide the re-branded grid access card, NetGuard, free of charge.
Info Security Best Deployment — Security Solution for Finance: Banco Santander
Banco Santander, the first Latin American Bank to implement Entrust IdentityGuard, chose to start with grid card authentication, which it branded the "Super Clave."
The bank initially purchased 260,000 Entrust IdentityGuard licenses but planed to expand its Super Clave user base to 600,000 within the next few years. Prior to Entrust's solution, the bank used a two-password system, but now leverages strong authentication to protect the integrity of transactions (e.g., money transfers).
The Santander Group also has banks in Argentina, Uruguay, Colombia and Brazil. In the future, the banks may choose to add token support via the Entrust IdentityGuard versatile authentication platform.
Info Security Best Deployment — Public Key Infrastructure: Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse Group's main focus when choosing the Entrust solution was to achieve more effective authentication of internal users. The Entrust Entelligence Desktop Manager solution authenticates internal users against Web servers and a large number of other business applications. As a result, it is no longer necessary for these applications to include login security and password management, meaning that new applications can now be developed and deployed more quickly.
