Versasec and Entrust Partnership Creates “One-Stop Shopping” Experience for Credential Management with Integrated PKI

 Versasec, the leading provider of state-of-the-art, highly secure identity and access management software, today announced that they are expanding their partnership with Entrust, a global leader in trusted payments, identities and digital infrastructure, to deliver a “one-stop shopping” experience for credential management integrated with a secure public key infrastructure (PKI) solution.

Identity and authentication of users and devices for organizations, in any sector, has become a crucial component in today’s cybersecurity space. Versasec and Entrust are extending their technology partnership, established in 2014, to empower customers to easily deploy Versasec credential management when implementing Entrust PKI. Customers can purchase the Versasec credential management system from Entrust and receive a “one-stop-shop” experience.

“This is significant and exciting news for our customers and for both of our companies,” said Joakim Thorén, CEO of Versasec. “Our distribution agreement makes Entrust a ‘one-stop-shop’ for our joint customers, who can now secure the PKI solutions they want more easily and quickly by working with one trusted vendor,” said Joakim Thorén, CEO of Versasec. “Together, we provide world-class PKI security, providing customers of any size with the ability to deploy strong authentication in multiple ecosystems.”

“Our partnership with Versasec is a natural one that further enhances our extensive PKI and authentication portfolio. In the mix of user authenticators a customer needs from Entrust, this partnership delivers a comprehensive and end-to-end smart card solution. The combination of technologies with Entrust’s cloud, on premise and hybrid service models delivers the high assurance, scalability and flexible lifecycle management needs that are demanded here,” said Robert Hann, VP of the Digital Security Center of Excellence at Entrust.

The distribution partnership offers a variety of customer benefits:

– Lower risk implementation: The joint solution is pre-integrated reducing time and costs

– Standards: The solutions encompass industry standard protocols, like SCEP, EST and CMPv2 to centralize management of devices and credentials

Versasec Joins FIDO Alliance to Strengthen Passwordless Authentication Standards

 Versasec, a leader in credential management systems (CMS), today announced it has joined the FIDO Alliance, an open industry association whose mission is to create authentication standards so the world can reduce its reliance on passwords.

As a member of the FIDO Alliance, Versasec will help work toward changing the nature of authentication with open standards that are more secure than passwords and one-time passwords (OTPs). The goal is to provide much more secure options that are simpler and easier for service providers to deploy and manage.

Versasec has been very involved with FIDO for many years and many of its closest partners are important contributors to the Alliance. Joining the group now makes sense for Versasec, as CEO Joakim Thorén explained.

“As the FIDO Alliance has grown, its focus has moved beyond consumer authentication to now include enterprise customers with the FIDO2 authentication protocol. We feel we can add a lot of value to the discussion and contribute to creating a true enterprise credential that supports many options beyond website logon,” Thorén said. “There are so many advantages with hardware-based multi-factor authentication in enterprise environments, and we’ll be working with the Alliance to ensure they are recognized.”

Joerg Dettmann, Versasec’s CTO added, “As a company, we joined the Alliance because we passionately believe in the standard, and we are committed to supporting it in our products in the best possible ways. We fully believe in the value of the open standards aspect of FIDO, and are excited to contribute.”

Beyond its technical contributions, as a FIDO Alliance member, Versasec will participate in forums and discussions, solicit feedback on its identity and access management products under development, and participate in FIDO Alliance events and activities.
