For more than 100 years, TELUS has been delivering innovative telecommunications solutions to Canadians. Their dedication to improving the lives of Canadians has helped spread their roots from British Columbia and Alberta to become the country's second largest telecommunications company.
TELUS Security Solutions offers customers the most comprehensive security portfolio, including consulting and managed services, technology solutions, plus partnerships with the top 20 global security vendors. In addition, TELUS Security Labs — with a staff of 30 researchers and a multi-million dollar annual budget — is a leading provider of security research to more than 50 of the world's top security product vendors. They handle targeted threats with real-time context, secure the mobile enterprise and remove the security management challenge by providing visibility, understanding, and control.
The existing two factor product that TELUS supports is only capable of managing two types of authenticators. TELUS came to Entrust looking for more of a platform based solution. They had customers requesting additional form factors and Entrust was able to meet their customer requirements.
The Entrust IdentityGuard authentication framework helps TELUS position Entrust solutions to a broader set of their customer base. Telus is expecting to see an increase as the partnership develops.
This is a strategic relationship with TELUS because TELUS has a large amount of coverage across areas and verticals in Canada where Entrust strategically plans to increase its footprint.
