Entrust Aligns with INTERPOL's Global Mission to Secure Identities, Protect Borders in Fight against Terrorism, Trafficking and Organized Online Crime

Entrust to demonstrate law enforcement solutions for secure collaboration, communication and mobile security technology during INTERPOL 81st General Assembly

DALLAS, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- An ally of law enforcement agencies and departments across the world, Entrust Inc. maintains unwavering support for securing identities and protecting borders in INTERPOL's global fight against terrorism, trafficking and other organized crime.

During the INTERPOL 81st General Assembly in Rome this week, Entrust will demonstrate how law enforcement may leverage strong authentication, encryption and mobile security technology to verify identities, secure communication and protect global collaboration between agencies.

"The INTERPOL General Assembly serves as invaluable networking hub between law enforcement agencies, departments and offices across the world," said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "This initiative is a true catalyst for realizing global security change — whether the focus is on better security practices, policy enforcement or the simple task of building and maintaining positive relationships."

Entrust is committed to innovation that enables law enforcement to not only authenticate identities, but also collaborate with other officers, departments or agencies across the world — regardless of their previous relationship. This invaluable event helps develop and shape the technology that will assist law enforcement in completing INTERPOL's core objectives.

"Backed by Entrust's security expertise and software innovation, INTERPOL helps establish global standards for the use of identity-based security technology for law enforcement, border security and other critical police initiatives," said INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble. "Our collaborative efforts are positively shaping the security landscape to help make the world safer and more secure."

Entrust strongly aligns with INTERPOL's drive to globally deploy technology that can properly issue and inspect all travel documents to quickly identify criminals, protect citizens and safeguard international borders. In fact, Entrust provides public key infrastructure (PKI) technology for strong border control and authentication of identities and biometric datasets on today's electronic machine-readable travel documents (eMRTDs).

"Entrust and INTERPOL enjoy a highly successfully working relationship that is helping shape the future of border security and identity authentication," said Conner. "This partnership provides proven technology for properly issuing, inspecting and authenticating identity-based travel documents — particularly for international officials with critical, time-sensitive objectives."

Throughout the annual General Assembly, Entrust will exhibit innovative mobile technologies for identity authentication and physical and logical access, as well as methods for law enforcement to leverage identity-based technology for inspection of high-assurance credentials — such as ePassports and other electronic IDs — for stronger border security.

Entrust, in collaboration with partner Morpho, also provides INTERPOL officers with second-generation travel documents to provide the foundation for special Visa status from granting member countries. Officers only need the single multipurpose smartcard for secure enterprise access and expedited border crossings at countries which have provided special visa status to INTERPOL travel document holders.

For more than 15 years, Entrust has been working with governments, police and the law enforcement community to meet advanced security requirements. More than 100 law enforcement organizations worldwide trust Entrust, including INTERPOL, Serious Organized Crime Organization (SOCA), RCMP, Norwegian Ministry of Defense, UK Ministry of Defense and more.

The INTERPOL General Assembly is composed of delegates appointed by the governments of 190 member countries. The General Assembly, INTERPOL's governing body, meets each year to discuss and vote on all major decisions affecting general policy, resources needed for international cooperation, working methods, finances and other activities.

With 190 member countries, INTERPOL is the world's largest international police organization. Created in 1923, it facilitates cross-border police cooperation, and supports and assists all organizations, authorities and services whose mission is to prevent or combat international crime.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
