nCipher to rebrand as Entrust
Cambridge cybersecurity firm nCipher is rebranding as Entrust, in line with its parent company.
It will transition to the new brand, with new logo, website and email addresses, from November 30, but said its service and product support will not be affected.
The nShield product line name for its hardware security modules (HSMs) - which provide cryptographic security - will be retained and become an Entrust product line.
Station Square-based nCipher was acquired from Thales in 2019 by Entrust Datacard , which completed its rebranding as Entrust last week in a move designed to reflect its focus on a digital security solution portfolio.
Todd Wilkinson, CEO of Entrust, said: “The global impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has shown us how critical digital transformation is in our daily lives.
“As consumers, we depend on digital technologies and security to do more than ever, whether it’s making purchases, crossing borders, accessing government services or logging into corporate networks.
“We are proud that some of the world’s largest governments, organisations and enterprises trust us to keep citizens, commerce and information moving safely.
“Making Entrust the foundation of our brand reflects how our technology and innovation are central to securing this ever-evolving world.”
The company was founded as Datacard Corporation in 1969 and became Entrust Datacard when it acquired Entrust in 2013.
nCipher Security looks forward to 'great synergies' with Entrust Datacard as Thales Group agrees to divest
