Salomon Brothers has selected Entrust Technologies Inc. for its enterprisewide security system.

Entrust, a spinoff of Northern Telecom of Canada, was chosen "because it will deliver superior encryption, authentication, and public-key infrastructure services to customers and employees who have always demanded the highest quality products," said Ted Jestin, the investment bank's global head of information security.

Salomon "is reinforcing its image as a market leader in technology innovation," said Entrust chief executive officer John Ryan. "Salomon recognizes that Entrust is the only security solution that has the key management capability to scale to enterprise levels and accommodate as many users as necessary."
