Mobile as the Enabler of Trusted ID Dave Rockvam of Entrust on the Future of Authentication
David Rockvam
Trusted Identity is the end-goal, and mobile devices are the means to get there, says Dave Rockvam of Entrust. How are mobile devices being leveraged for security in the enterprise today?

For too long, Rockvam says, CISOs resisted the mobility trend for fear of security breaches. But now they are coming around to the notion of using these ubiquitous devices as a means of improving security.

"We're all about taking our strong authentication solutions we've built in the past and taking those to mobile," Rockvam says. "So, when we look at a mobile device - one you've secured that device, you can then leverage that device to do strong transactions."

Ultimately, the mobile device itself becomes a strong credential, Rockvam says.

In an interview conducted at Infosecurity Europe 2014, Rockvam discusses:

  • How to leverage mobile in security;
  • The impact of Trusted ID on the enterprise;
  • The future of strong authentication.

Under Rockvam, Entrust Certificate Services has seen a rapid expansion, more than doubling since the company went private in 2009. Rockvam is a graduate of Texas Tech University where he received an undergraduate degree in international trade and economics. He also holds a master's degree in business administration from the University of Texas at Dallas.
