Entrust IdentityGuard Provides Strong Authentication for Nortel Remote Access

Entrust IdentityGuard 7.2 makes cost-effective strong authentication available for Nortel enterprise remote access customers

DALLAS, June 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Entrust, Inc. , a world leader in securing digital identities and information, today announced the integration of the Entrust IdentityGuard solution with a market-leading remote access solution from Nortel Networks (NYSE: NT; TSX: NT), Nortel VPN Router (formerly Contivity), to help enable organizations deploy industry- leading security to protect the enterprise without having to incur the typical high costs of strong authentication hardware devices. This integration makes low-cost two-factor authentication for global remote access available for use with one of the market leading products in remote access, and has been certified Entrust Ready status under Entrust's global partner program.

Entrust IdentityGuard is a new strong authentication solution that replaces more expensive and traditional battery-powered tokens. The Entrust IdentityGuard solution makes use of a unique grid of characters and numbers that are in turn used to answer a random challenge, generated when accessing enterprise remote access gateways or sensitive applications.

"One of the strengths of emerging remote access systems is that they can be used to grant access to customers and partners in addition to employees. The key to that access is the ability to positively identify the user," said Charles Kolodgy, research director of Security Products at IDC. "Entrust IdentityGuard provides a simple, cost effective and secure method for performing this user authentication."

"There are millions of remote access users worldwide that need strong authentication to secure access to their networks, to protect key information like corporate IP and sensitive customer information. In the past, the choices were largely limited to expensive, battery-powered tokens," pointed out Kevin Simzer, Senior Vice President at Entrust. "Entrust IdentityGuard changes the entire enterprise security landscape. Now, enterprises can realize the cost savings delivered by Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) with affordable security. This integration with Nortel, a long-time Entrust partner and one of the industry leaders in remote access control technologies, is critical to help meet the demand for strong authentication with remote access at a low cost."

Entrust has worked rigorously to provide for a painless integration of Entrust IdentityGuard with the Nortel VPN Router. Entrust has architected the solution such that it is possible for organizations using Nortel remote access products to make only minor configuration modifications to their current gateway, with no requirement for client-side changes, reducing both cost and time for deployment. The Entrust Ready testing environment leveraged industry leader Funk Software's Steel-Belted Radius Server as the certified option for Radius in combination with Nortel VPN Router.

General availability for Entrust IdentityGuard 7.2 is planned for June 2005. For more information on Entrust IdentityGuard, please visit: http://www.entrust.com/identityguard/index.htm.
