Fully Integrated, Pre-tested, Packaged Offering Minimises Time, Complexity for Implementation of Identrus System
Entegrity Solutions® Corporation and Unisys Corporation announced today that the two companies have entered into an agreement in which Entegrity will provide a key software component for Trusted Community Solution. This is the first packaged security solution for the Microsoft Windows 2000 platform that conforms to the Identrus architecture, the standard in trust for business-to-business electronic commerce. Unisys is developing the solution in collaboration with Microsoft Corp. and Baltimore Technologies.
Unisys will install Entegrity TSP™ (Trust Services Platform) as the Digital Signature Message System (DSMS) component of Trusted Community Solution, a Unisys e-@ction Security Solution.
Trusted Community Solution operates on a Microsoft Windows 2000 platform and Baltimore Technologies’ UniCERTTM Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) security system. Unisys provides Identrus application enabling and professional services, project management, and consulting services necessary to implement the solution. In addition, Unisys can assist Identrus participants to achieve Identrus accreditation of their infrastructure.
Conforming to the unique requirements of the Identrus programme, Trusted Community Solution minimises the time, complexity and risk for financial institutions seeking to offer services based upon the Identrus system of trust. To create trust, Identrus financial institutions certify their corporate customers as trading partners on the Internet. These trading partners use the Identrus system to conclusively identify one another, ensure their communications are secure and create an indisputable record of their transactions.
“Entegrity TSP™ is an essential component of the Trusted Community Solution, which we provide to financial institutions that want to implement the Identrus global trust system in weeks instead of months, lowering the overall cost of implementation and reducing the time required to recoup their deployment investment,” stated Sunil Misra, managing principal of Unisys Worldwide Enterprise Security Practice. “Our Identrus compliant, integrated solution package helps Identrus members create a highly secure environment, including a Public Key Infrastructure that meets or exceeds the stringent inter-operational and audit requirements of Identrus.”
“Entegrity delivered one of the first DSMS solution to fully support the Identrus transaction coordinator infrastructure, and we are building on our leadership position with the release of Entegrity TSP,” said Dave Martin, president and CEO of Entegrity. “As part of the Trusted Community Solution, Entegrity TSP will enable Identrus member financial institutions and their corporate clients to quickly and cost-effectively integrate B2B e-commerce applications with the Identrus trust infrastructure. Six of the world’s largest banks have already deployed Entegrity DSMS products. And as one of the world’s largest systems integrators, Unisys will capitalise on the capabilities of Entegrity TPS to manage identity validation and communication within the Identrus infrastructure.”
