GeoTrust, Inc., a leader in identity verification solutions for e-business and a leading issuer of digital certificates for web security, and CipherPass Corporation, an innovator of digital certificate management solutions, today announced an expanded partnership.

GeoTrust will now be able to offer its customers CipherPass' C~suite solution, which is interoperable with GeoTrust's True Credentials client certificate offering, and helps enterprises manage the deployment of large numbers of credentials. As organizations seek to increase security with two-factor authentication, and meet the privacy and compliance requirements needed in today's increasingly security-conscious and regulated business environment, digital credentials are gaining popularity due to their cost-effectiveness and ease of deployment.

"We are seeing organizations of all sizes move away from user names and passwords towards cost-effective digital certificates to provide strong authentication as well as encryption to their network applications," said Neal Creighton, GeoTrust's CEO. "GeoTrust's True Credentials client certificates provides these organizations with software-based two-factor authentication, and by partnering with CipherPass and incorporating its C~suite solution into our offering, we are adding a valuable, economical and easy-to-use management interface to complement our digital certificates."

Glen Day, CipherPass' CEO, commented, "Over the last few years every major software provider has implemented solutions to enable the use of digital certificates, in part to adhere to privacy and regulatory guidelines. With GeoTrust and CipherPass working together to simplify the certificate issuance process, as well as securing e-mail and documents, large enterprises are now able to quickly and comprehensively address regulatory standards like Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA and the FFIEC guidelines."

CipherPass C~suite enables businesses to securely share sensitive or confidential electronic information among employees, partners and customers. CipherPass' secure service solutions offer significant cost reduction for deploying and managing trusted digital certificates. Businesses and governments can rely upon C~suite to better secure their currently installed applications, such as Microsoft's Outlook email client and Adobe's Professional document creator. By leveraging existing corporate applications, C~suite creates a strategic, digital security framework that is easy to deploy, easy-to-use and cost-effective.

GeoTrust's True Credentials client certificates provide two-factor authentication and the cryptographic functions necessary to encrypt all electronic transmissions so no unauthorized parties can read or understand the transmission. True Credentials enables organizations to overcome the inherent security risks typically associated with simple password schemes, open email communications and hardware-based authentication solutions. Provided as a fully-managed digital certificate service, it avoids the expensive hardware, infrastructure and set-up costs associated with other client authentication solutions. True Credentials provides a fast and easy way for enterprises to credential users and to deliver these client credentials electronically.
