Entrust Inc. released a new addition to its certificate management service for publicly trusted secure e-mail certificates that enable digital signature capability and encryption of e-mails and other secure documents.
The standards-based capabilities in Entrust Secure E-mail Certificates are based on the X.509 certificate standard. The S/MIME capabilities are available for both personal and enterprise levels and designed specifically to provide the appropriate identity verification for both environments. Additionally, the certificates come publicly trusted by the most used Web browsers.
The two levels work differently. For instance in the personal secure e-mail certificate, the technology works to provide e-mail privacy via encryption and verify the location and security of the original message. For company use, enterprise certificates give the user validation of the organization, e-mail domain and end-user. Old e-mails are stored and secured with automated, full-key history backup and restore capabilities so that they may not be lost.
Entrust Certificate Services also improves the multi-domain capabilities of its SSL certificates such as their line of extended validation (EV) and unified communications (UC) digital certificates. The multi-domain certificates give the ability to secure multiple domains or hostnames in a company system.
