10 February 2004 - Uxbridge, Middlesex: Axway, the leading European-based worldwide provider of Integration Broker Solutions, today announced a collaborative relationship with Entrust, Inc. [NASDAQ: ENTU], a world leader in securing digital identities and information, by joining the Entrust TrustedPartner Program as a Technology Partner.
As a Technology Partner, Axway is taking a vital step towards additional products and solutions to achieve Entrust Ready(tm) status. The Entrust Ready designation is awarded to products and services that have been reviewed for compatibility and interoperability with EntrustÂ® products. Under the TrustedPartner program, Entrust will make its software available and provide integration guidance in order to help the Technology Partner's offering fulfil the Entrust Ready requirements.
Martin Stern, managing director of Axway UK and Ireland, said: "Axway has been working with Entrust on integration projects since the 1990s. Today's announcement is confirming the inherent value of the relationship for our customers. Modern file exchange remains a valid entry point of many integration projects, offering instant value and minimal complexity. However, in the business-to-business context of a file portal, the confidentiality concern is often a gatekeeper. Axway and Entrust customers can now secure exchanges with the outside world, in both directions."
Eric Skinner, vice president, Secure Data Solutions, Entrust, Inc. said: "The Entrust TrustedPartners Program reflects the need to engage global market opportunities through alliances that leverage leading solutions and services to provide extended value for potential and existing customers. We look forward to further developing this relationship with Axway to provide industry leading Internet security solutions to enterprises, financial institutions and governments."
