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

Cybersecurity Leaders Expand Long-standing Technology Partnership to Meet Evolving Customer Needs

Versasec, the leading provider of state-of-the-art, highly secure identity and access management software, today announced 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 
  • Scale: Ability to scale to any size, from day one 
  • Standards: The solutions encompass industry standard protocols, like SCEP, EST and CMPv2 to centralize management of devices and credentials 
  • Standard credential types such as PIV and PIV-I  with additional flexibility to accommodate custom credential types
  • Unified system: The solutions combine certificate operations and reporting into an organization’s existing business practices
  • Trusted Registration Authority (RA): Fully integrated registration authority with Entrust PKI portfolio.
