Entrust Datacard Makes Strategic Investment in UK-Based CensorNet and Acquires its Multi-Factor Authentication Technology Solution
Entrust Datacard, a leading provider of trusted identity and secure transaction technology solutions, today announced that it has made a strategic investment in CensorNet, the complete cloud security company, to propel Entrust Datacard toward achieving real-time threat awareness with enhanced pattern analysis for continuous authentication capabilities. Entrust Datacard has also acquired Copenhagen-based SMS Passcode, CensorNet’s adaptive multi-factor authentication technology solution. The strategic acquisition of the SMS Passcode technology and the investment in CensorNet’s USS platform further establishes Entrust Datacard as an innovative authentication solution provider and allows the company to further expand its global footprint throughout DACH/Benelux and The Nordics.
CensorNet’s USS platform, which includes a cloud access security broker (CASB), multi-factor authentication, and web and email security, will bolster new offerings for Entrust Datacard across authentication, PKI and SSL. Additionally, the collaboration will enhance the Entrust Datacard intelligent Authentication Insight Engine by accelerating its behavior and pattern capabilities for more real-time, intelligent decision-making, improving security and the user experience for the next generation of threats and compliance needs.
“Identity-centric data analysis is in CensorNet’s DNA, and identity assurance capabilities in ours,” said Todd Wilkinson, president and CEO for Entrust Datacard. “This new relationship and investment in CensorNet presents opportunities for collaboration to enhance both companies’ offerings and re-shape the market together.”
For greater collaboration between the companies, Entrust Datacard CEO Todd Wilkinson will join CensorNet’s board of directors and the SMS Passcode team will integrate with the larger Entrust Datacard authentication team.
In a quickly-changing IT and threat landscape, the need for a more seamless, frictionless and secure customer experience has never been greater. The acquisition of SMS Passcode will allow Entrust Datacard to better serve customers by integrating the solution’s technology with its IntelliTrust™ SaaS authentication solution, expanding USS capabilities to Entrust Datacard customers while adding advanced mobile and cloud capabilities to SMS Passcode customers.
“CensorNet and Entrust Datacard have a shared vision for real-time identity centric security that can be achieved faster and with greater impact together rather than separately,” said Ed Macnair, CEO for CensorNet. “The acquisition of SMS Passcode will benefit the broader IAM market as well as SMS Passcode customers, and this new relationship will continue serving customers as Entrust Datacard builds upon existing partnerships and enhances our USS offering.”
Entrust Datacard has a long history of innovating and expanding both geographically and technologically to provide solutions that reflect changing market conditions. Continuing this approach, the SMS Passcode acquisition and investment in CensorNet’s USS platform represents a significant step toward both a holistic security approach and global presence for the organization. At a time when other security players are going through large, complex mergers or acquiring and shelving smaller innovators, Entrust Datacard is building strong partnerships through targeted investments and acquisitions.
“SMS Passcode is an established multi-factor authentication (MFA) leader in DACH/Benelux and The Nordics, making it a natural fit for our acquisition strategy,” said Wilkinson. “The MFA technology, as well as the USS platform, will be strong complements to the Entrust Datacard portfolio of solutions.”
The acquisition was signed and finalized on June 30, 2018. Terms of the acquisition are undisclosed.

Delticom AG/Mytyres.co.uk: Buying Great Value Tyres Online Doesn’t Mean Missing out on Professional Fitting22.3.2019 17:15:00 EET | Tiedote
Spring is just around the corner, and it’s time for drivers to start thinking about changing to summer tyres. However, a tyre check may show that your current summer tyres are getting old, worn out, or have visible damage, such as cracks or bumps. If this is the case, then it's time for a new set of tyres. The legal minimum tread depth is 1.6 mm, however experts recommend significantly more – summer tyres should be replaced even if the tread depth is 3 mm. Regardless of mileage, you should change your tyres at least every eight to ten years. This is because the rubber starts to harden, the tyres lose grip on the road, and driving performance is affected. Of course, a set of four new tyres is a significant investment – authorised workshops can often charge between 250 and 350 pounds. If you want to save money, consider the alternatives: the result is an increasing number of customers turning to online shops such as Mytyres.co.uk to buy new tyres. The market share of tyres sold online ha
