In an effort to draw companies to adopt its IdentityGuard security program, Entrust is offering a hard-token replacement program.
Companies that wish to partake in the hard-token replacement program must already be users of IdentityGuard 9.3 or higher, or purchase IdentityGuard 10.0. Entrust will replace up to 5,000 users’ hard tokens with mobile and soft tokens. Companies do not need to turn in their old hard tokens as part of the program requirements.
The Entrust IdentityGuard platform allows users to deploy authenticators simultaneously, while allowing for real-time adjustments in security.
Citing the recent FFIEC guidance, Entrust president and CEO Bill Conner said that the hard token-based system of authentication is out of date, and given the recent high profile security breaches, solutions need to upgrade to a more flexible and seamless authenticator.
