The Revenue Cabinet has more than 200 employees that deal with sensitive taxpayer information and utilize laptops while traveling as Auditors and Field Representatives. The Kentucky Revenue Cabinet recognizes that appropriate measures need to be put into place to protect taxpayer data from unauthorized access. Specifically, the Kentucky Revenue Cabinet (KRC), responsible for the administration of tax law for both Kentucky individual and business taxpayers, will deploy Entrust Desktop solutions to provide highly secure encryption and two-factor authentication for the organizations field staff. The combination of the Entrust digital identity solution, which includes a hardware token that can provide a multiple level approach to protect sensitive files and folders on the laptop, allows only authenticated users to access the encrypted files. As the result of a competitive bid process, the Commonwealth of Kentucky has already established a strong relationship with Entrust, as it has standardized on the Entrust product for PKI and secure email.
