Blueice Research in Collaboration with Entra, a company within the TietoEnator Group

Blueice Research in Collaboration with Entra, a company within the TietoEnator Group Stockholm, Sweden - 19 April 2001 - IT-security company Blueice Research has signed a Strategic Alliance Agreement with Entra, a company within the TietoEnator Group focused on providing banking and finance solutions. The agreement means that Entra has chosen to market the Blueice Research product, Multipass, for enabling secure transactions from mobile devices. Blueice Research thereby further increases its presence in the security marketplace. The use of mobile devices for Internet access is expected to increase dramatically over the next few years. This imposes significantly higher demands for security on the part of both service providers and consumers. Internet banks and online stockbrokers are examples of actors that have to meet the security demands of the expanding mobile Internet service business. Companies and organisations that want their employees to communicate with internal systems from mobile devices is another example of a segment that has the need to protect information and introduce digital signature technology. - Entra has a long and solid experience of providing solutions in the bank and finance segment, which match's very well with our product solution Multipass for secure mobile transactions, says Fredrik Hökegård, Sales Director at Blueice Research. For the service provider, corporation, and end user, the Multipass enables user authentication, handling of certificate requests, verifying digital signatures along with issuing digital receipts. Multipass is built on PKI-technology. PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) has emerged as the security architecture best suited to providing confidentiality, authentication, and data integrity as well as the essential feature of non-repudiation - serving to minimize the risks involved while conducting online transactions.
