Baltimore Technologies, a company which sells e-security solutions, has become an Identrus Express partner. Under the program, financial institutions can work with Baltimore to outsource e-business security.
Baltimore’s e-security products and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) systems are used worldwide to give customers secure communications and online transactions.
Under this model, Baltimore will host the certificate management system and on-line certificate status on behalf of the financial institution. In turn, using e-security solutions, companies will be able to implement new methods, while reducing costs and offloading the complexities of e-business.
“Financial institutions benefit on three fronts, namely time to market, lower costs and the highest standards in e-security technology. Baltimore’s e-security technology is already being used by financial institutions worldwide, most recently by Banco Santander. Through this program we look forward to working with Identrus to make it easier for financial institutions to adopt e-security for e-business,” said Aidan Gallagher, executive vice president of Global Business Development at Baltimore Technologies.
“With Identrus Express, financial institutions can be confident they are getting proven infrastructure technology that has passed through rigorous independent testing. By working with leading players in the field Identrus Express offers financial institutions a quick deployment option enabling them to focus on their core business and B2B offerings,” commented Kristin Kupres, chief operating and technology officer at Identrus.
Baltimore’s Unicert Options allow businesses to choose products and services to match their e-security and e-business needs. In addition, this flexible offering enables an organisation to move from outsourcing to hybrid to in-house as its needs evolve.
Baltimore Technologies products include wireless solutions, cryptographic toolkits, security applications and hardware cryptographic devices. The company employs over 700 people worldwide and operates from over 20 cities with headquarters in Dublin, Ireland; London, UK; Boston, USA and Sydney, Australia. Intel Corporation is a minority shareholder in the company.
