Date:6/23/2009

x-tention to use Entrust grid cards, tokens and one-time-passcodes for strong enterprise authentication

DALLAS, June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Healthcare networks and facilities rely on security solutions to protect sensitive information and the identities that have access to it. Importantly, this is no different for the IT vendors who implement the technology to make it possible. In fact, Entrust, Inc. (Nasdaq: ENTU), displaced a high-priced competitor to provide affordable strong authentication for Austrian-based x-tention, who specializes in IT solutions and technology for hospitals, healthcare facilities and networks.

"As an organization who secures so many healthcare organizations, x-tention takes great pride in protecting our company's and our customers' own information, brand, identities and intellectual property," said Michael Schoenwiese, CISO at x-tention. "But the real value for us was being able to displace a high-priced vendor for strong authentication with a solution that is more affordable, customizable to our needs and simple for our customers and partners to use."

Facilitated by Entrust partner CoreTEC, x-tention deployed Entrust IdentityGuard for strong enterprise authentication via cost-effective grid cards, tokens and out-of-band, one-time passcodes. One of x-tention's primary requirements in transitioning to Entrust IdentityGuard was to be able to facilitate a seamless migration for their employees and customers.

"It's reassuring to work with proactive organizations who understand that top-of-the-line security can be affordable and easy to use," said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "As an IT solutions provider, x-tention appreciates how the value and flexibility of the right solution can really benefit an organization."

Entrust IdentityGuard enables organizations to layer security -- according to access requirements or the risk of a given transaction -- across diverse users and applications. The platform's authentication options include strong username and password, IP-geolocation, device profiling, questions and answers, digital certificates, out-of-band one-time passcode (delivered via voice, SMS or e-mail), grid cards, SMS soft tokens, eGrid cards and a range of one-time-passcode tokens. Entrust IdentityGuard also provides multiple methods of supporting mutual authentication, including picture and caption replay.

x-tention IT GmbH (http://www.x-tention.at), an Austrian based IT solutions provider, was established in 2001 and operates the IT of multiple hospitals with a total of about 1800 beds. Services include planning, development and implementation of a broad spectrum of IT- solutions focused on the healthcare market. x-tention has built many strong partnerships and works closely with CISCO and TIANI Spirit to implement solutions that can help organizations in their compliance with IHE guidelines.
