Entrust has released a new Public Key Infrastructure-as-a-Service (PKIaaS) solution that was built to make cloud applications more secure. Entrust PKIaaS will also make it easier for organizations to make the transition to the cloud, since the solution can be deployed in a matter of minutes and scale on-demand to cover organizations of any size.
In that regard, Entrust PKIaaS will deliver a consistent user experience across multiple use cases. Administrators can manage the entire system from a consolidated Entrust Central Certificate Services portal, while the keys themselves are stored in Entrust data centers that are protected by nShield HSMs. The cloud-native system will allow organizations to keep up with demand as certificate volume increases due to new use cases and shorter life spans.
Entrust PKIaaS is intended to be part of a broader portfolio of Entrust-as-a-Service products that provide businesses with out-of-the box security solutions. It is compatible with Entrust HSMs, and offers support for credential-based authentication systems.
“As customers migrate to the cloud, their security and identity needs to go with them,” said Entrust PKI and IoT Product Management Director Jon Ferguson. “By bringing Entrust PKI technology and experience to the cloud, PKIaaS provides a secure identity foundation with the scale, speed and simplicity required for businesses rapidly migrating critical services to the cloud. Our ‘born in the cloud’ solutions secure a wide range of critical security and identity use cases with turnkey cloud services making it quick and easy to deploy.”
In September, Entrust rebranded from Entrust Datacard to acknowledge its growing interest in digital security. The company has since partnered with Netcetera to mitigate card-not-present fraud, and moved toward the travel sector through the acquisition of WorldReach. Entrust has also released a passwordless Single Sign-On authentication system that lets employees take advantage of the biometric features on a standard mobile device.
