Entrust Unveils Web Security Solution

Entrust Technologies Inc. Tuesday unveiled a new Web security and privacy product.

Entrust/TruePass is a multi-platform, standards-based security solution. The end-to-end data protection product protects confidential data while it is in transit on Web servers, which is where most Internet theft occurs. TruePass provides digital signatures and encryption of transactions, using digital certificates to authenticate users.

The product, which is designed for a wide variety of B2B and B2C network applications, enables unique secure "roaming" access from any workstation and transparent integration into Web applications to maximize ease of use.

Entrust (ENTU) said the product does not rely on a browser plug-in or ActiveX controls to perform advanced security operations, eliminating the need for users to install software or agree to security warning dialogs.

"This product allows us to further bring value to companies in protecting themselves against fraud, ensuring the integrity of their private data and significantly reducing the costs and complexities of deployment of secure Web applications," said Bob Heard, senior vice-president, marketing and business development, Entrust.

"TruePass helps make it safe for our customers to do business over the Internet by delivering cost-effective, easy-to-use, end-to-end protection of confidential data that is deployable within seconds," he said.
