As a leader in enterprise software solutions and supporting IT software, Microsoft has led the innovation that has enabled the IT system of today – powerful, dynamic and accessed from a range of devices and locations. This has enabled productivity, collaboration and responsiveness of previously unknown scale. But as mobile and cloud reshape the traditional security perimeter, identity has become critical in securing digital connections throughout the enterprise to guard against increasingly sophisticated threats and attacks.

Entrust Datacard and Microsoft have formed a strategic partnership to bring our portfolio of trusted identity solutions to Microsoft customers, enabling secure connections between people, systems and devices to streamline IT deployment, mitigate risk and reduce fraud. Together, we enable even higher levels of growth and innovation.

Secure Your Systems

As part of the trend toward a more distributed infrastructure, modern enterprises have seen a proliferation of mobile devices and cloud environments. While these both increase flexibility and accessibility across the workforce, they also introduce more threat vectors and associated risks. Together, Entrust Datacard and Microsoft have developed a suite of integrations that enforce trusted identity within transactions and between devices and systems.

Mobile Device Management

With Microsoft Intune, organizations can easily manage all of their mobile devices and applications, seamlessly enabling enterprise mobility. The integration of Entrust Datacard PKI and Intune enables these organizations to issue certificates via Entrust Datacard to provide seamless device authentication to applications and on-premises resources.


Modern Device Provisioning

Windows Autopilot automates the heavy lifting usually required to provision new devices. With the integration of Entrust Datacard PKI, you can enable secure access to corporate resources such as WiFi, VPN and core applications during provisioning with the issuance of device certificates by Entrust Datacard through Microsoft Intune. The costs and time required to set up devices is greatly reduced, and your devices gain additional security based on trusted identity.

Secure Your Users

The evolution of mobile and cloud have introduced a broad new range of applications and endpoints, but this has also magnified challenges in user identity management and authentication. Entrust Datacard and Microsoft have a suite of integrations for directory services, user authentication and access control that allow you to easily leverage the best-in-class capabilities of both vendors.

User management 

User Management with Active Directory

The integration of Windows Server Active Directory (AD) and Azure Active Directory environments with Entrust Datacard IntelliTrust streamlines user identity management, enabling you to leverage existing user and attribute information to quickly and effortlessly deploy Entrust Datacard IntelliTrust. Our integrations make deployment a breeze, and ongoing AD management means you’ll only ever have to manage your users from one place – your Azure Active Directory.

Microsoft Application Authentication

Whether you’re seeking to add effortless, strong authentication to Windows login or streamline access to Microsoft cloud applications such as Office 365, Entrust Datacard IntelliTrust™ provides the most modern mobile and adaptive authentication to secure your business while minimizing user friction and frustration. Integrations also extend to legacy applications with rich protocol support, including CAPI, ISAPI, ADFS, Radius, SAML and OpenID connect.

Secure Access with Azure Active Directory Conditional Access

Building upon their platform of Azure cloud services, Microsoft now offers customers access management capabilities with Azure Active Directory Conditional Access. Entrust Datacard IntelliTrust brings an additional layer of modern authentication to Azure Active Directory to meet the flexibility and varied needs of your users – from grid cards and hardware tokens to mobile push and the most secure certificate-based approaches with our mobile smart credential. Your applications, data and organization will be protected with an authentication that’s easy to deploy and use.
