Thales and Entrust Partner to Deliver High Levels of Assurance for Identity Management, Encryption and Public Key Infrastructure Solutions

Under a commercial relationship Entrust to resell Thales nShield HSMs to complement its enterprise and managed service offerings

RSA Conference, San Francisco - February 26, 2013 - Thales, leader in information systems and communications security, and Entrust Inc., a pioneer and global leader in public-key infrastructure (PKI) technology, announce a strategic partnership to deliver easy to deploy, high-assurance encryption and key management solutions for customers worldwide, whether they are securing their enterprise or protecting information in the cloud.

Organizations today are demanding robust, high-assurance solutions to ensure the security of their critical information and defend against an evolving threat landscape. To address these challenges, Thales and Entrust have partnered to deliver award-winning, cost-effective solutions to defend against sophisticated online and internal threats, increase efficiency and comply with domestic and international regulations. Boasting an Entrust Ready Designation, Thales offerings are tested and proven to be interoperable with Entrust solutions and will be re-sold by Entrust to complement both its enterprise and managed service offerings.

News facts:

  • The global partnership delivers innovative offerings for PKI, key management and user authentication to help address sophisticated security challenges with solutions that provide multiple safeguards to protect information and identities against new and evolving threats.

  • Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) are widely accepted as a best practice for protecting cryptographic keys and for performing encryption and digital signing. Entrust customers will benefit from the availability of Thales nShield HSMs as part of Entrust's managed PKI service package.

  • Organizations are increasingly expanding HSM usage with PKIs in response to today's higher assurance requirements and to support newer certificate issuance requirements, for example for device certificates as part of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives.

  • Thales nShield FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified HSMs deliver the industry's most operationally efficient high assurance key management framework.

  • The combined solutions, available from Entrust, are scalable to be delivered on premise, hosted or cloud-based to meet customers' specific business requirements.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
