Entrust, AirWatch to Showcase Certificate Integration Capabilities at 2013 Mobile World Congress

Collaboration with MDM partner empowers clients to better manage digital identities on mobile devices

DALLAS, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading identity-based security solutions provider Entrust, Inc. and enterprise mobile management partner AirWatch will exhibit and address attendees at the 2013 Mobile World Congress Feb. 25-28 in Barcelona, Spain.

"Mobile has the power to change identity and offers significant opportunity to today's enterprise," said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "Mobile security should not create barriers. Rather, effective mobile security allows companies to leverage mobile devices to improve productivity and efficiency, while also providing a higher standard of security for both logical, physical and cloud environments."

Entrust began its strategic relationship with AirWatch in February 2012 to advance access for Entrust PKI, Managed Service and Entrust IdentityGuard users who can then leverage AirWatch's Software as a Service (SaaS) appliance-based or on-premise solutions. The integrated solution between AirWatch's Enterprise mobile device management solution and Entrust IdentityGuard Cloud allows AirWatch customers to easily manage digital identities on mobile devices.

This integration also enables organizations to leverage digital certificates for Wi-Fi and VPN authentication via AirWatch's simple device enrollment process. Hundreds of mobile devices — including Apple iOS, Google Android, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile — are authenticated via Entrust's shared certification authority (CA).

Mark Reeves, Entrust's senior vice president of international sales, will take part in a panel discussion on Feb. 25, which will focus on mobile security in the enterprise. In this discussion, Reeves will address the top security challenges companies face as they develop mobility strategies and expand their mobile footprint.

At Mobile World Congress 2013, CEOs of the world's most influential companies, along with more than 1,500 of the industry's leading suppliers of mobile devices, services and technologies, will share their visions of the mobile landscape. Last year's conference was its biggest with more than 67,000 attendees and nearly 1,500 exhibitors from 205 countries.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
