New arrival. Entrust Datacard is here with the news that its IntelliTrust authentication service is now available on the Microsoft Azure Active Directory platform.
The integration arrives alongside the confirmation that the company has also joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association. The integration delivers additional, plug-and-play authentication security options to users of Azure Active Directory Premium P1 edition.
Entrust Datacard VP of Authentication Ryan Zlockie talked about this integration and its potential for significant expansion of the reach of the platform:
“Microsoft Azure Active Directory is gaining incredible market momentum because it brings customers the conveniences of the cloud with the power of Microsoft tools.”
With this arrival, Microsoft customers now have another passwordless option to secure their Azure Active Directory connected apps.
IntelliTrust is designed to enable end users to use their smartphones as virtual smart cards.
The service uses soft tokens and biometrics for authentication purposes. And it can also be customized to set different authentication requirements for different user profiles, thereby offering systems administrators more control over the authentication security of their IT infrastructure.
