Entrust Identity Essentials
What makes Entrust Identity Essentials more secure?
Entrust Identity Essentials (formerly know as SMS Passcode) is adaptive, real-time, challenge-based and session-specific, and takes advantage of contextual information when validating the user, thereby protecting against identity theft and modern Internet threats. Plug in to AD and your safe and up and running in just 20 minutes. Danish quality since 2005.
Unlike solutions relying on pre-issued passcodes, Entrust Identity Essentials only generates the passcodes once a challenge (username and password is validated) has been fulfilled.
All passcodes are generated in real-time at the point of login. No pre-issued passcodes. No seed files to be hacked.
All passcodes are locked to the session-ID of each particular login attempt for maximum security. This reduces the attack surface from being accessible from any device to a single device. Userfriendly because of the “MemoPasscodes” and easy to remember at login.
Passcodes can be send thru SMS, eMail, VoiceCall, Entrust App, and the famous PushApp. The concern button will inform the administrator your enduser received an OTP without logging in. No other tools take this important step. You want to know when people try to steal your ID isn’t it? SMS can be sent thru the Entrust Dispatching Service, SMS Gateways of your choice or SIMHardware in your DC.
The OTP time validation period and delivery form adapts based on the context of the user.
Increase security by blocking access from high risk locations or regions.
Contextual user notifications
Users receive information about the GEO-IP location of their login to help identify possible man-in-the-middle attacks.
Protection against brute-force attacks
Entrust Identity Essentials includes advanced brute-force and denial-of-service attack detection and protection.
Hardened security keeps your data safe
Our passcodes are cryptographically strong random generated OTPs using FIPS-140 validated crypto modules and all communication between components is AES 256bit encrypted. Our platform itself is fully authenticoded and obfuscated.
