Entrust Integrates 3M™ Cogent Biometric Technology into Entrust IdentityGuard Software Authentication Platform

DALLAS, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Biometric fingerprint authentication isn't just for smartphones. Entrust, Inc. and 3M Cogent are integrating biometric fingerprint authentication into the award-winning Entrust IdentityGuard software authentication platform.

This collaboration allows organizations to leverage fingerprint biometrics to authenticate users for logical access to workstations. Entrust is embedding 3M™ Cogent fingerprint capture and verification technology, which will be available to both new and current Entrust IdentityGuard customers who subscribe to software maintenance support services.

"Entrust and 3M share the same standards and vision for authenticating identities," said Entrust President Dave Wagner. "Integrating proven 3M biometric authentication is another step in the platform's evolution — a stride that continues our focus on properly protecting customer identities."

With an increasing need to deploy second-factor authentication to protect sensitive information, organizations must balance security and usability. Adding 3M Cogent's easy-to-use strong authentication capabilities to the Entrust IdentityGuard portfolio helps organizations to streamline secure access to both cloud and internal systems.

"Entrust and 3M have complementary offerings in the identity management marketplace — from digital certificate management to identity document issuance solutions," said Teresa Wu, who manages the global biometric portfolio for 3M Cogent. "We will leverage our respective strengths and expertise to expand biometric capability within the Entrust IdentityGuard authentication platform to help customers deploy solutions that match their budget, users and security needs."

In the U.S., law enforcement agencies may deploy biometric fingerprint capabilities to satisfy the FBI's CJIS requirements for advanced authentication. This type of biometric authentication is ideal for organizations that require a combination of secure access to sensitive resources and proven user convenience.

Entrust's flagship authentication solution, Entrust IdentityGuard, is one of the industry's most robust authentication and identity-assurance platforms. The platform offers one of the widest ranges of authenticators on the market — and all from a single, cost-effective platform. And the addition of smartcards, mobile smart credentials and digital certificates as proven authenticators extends the platform's versatility, scalability and cost-effectiveness.

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, Solutions Marketi...
