BEDFORD, Mass., May 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- RSA Security Inc. (Nasdaq:
RSAS) today announced immediate support for Oracle Identity Management, a key
component of Oracle Application Server 10g, allowing users of the RSA
ClearTrust(R) identity and access management solution to receive seamless
single sign-on across the Oracle platform and across applications protected by
RSA ClearTrust software. This announcement builds upon the long-standing
strategic relationship between RSA Security and Oracle that extends across
product lines and organizations. Combined, the Oracle Identity Management and
RSA ClearTrust solutions streamline the process of identifying users and
controlling their access to resources, providing cost savings, productivity
advantages and security enhancements.
RSA ClearTrust software allows organizations to centrally manage user
identities, authentication policies and user privileges. It provides access
control and single sign-on to users accessing corporate portals, application
servers and other protected web resources. Additionally, it provides native
support for databases and directory servers, allowing users to seamlessly
access all allowed Oracle applications. Through a shared security services
layer that operates across applications, customers gain single sign-on across
Oracle applications and other applications protected by the RSA ClearTrust
software environment. This approach gives administrators the flexibility to
provide specialized entitlement processing as well as the ability to look at
specific directory attributes, centrally specifying which individuals have
access to certain applications.
"The growth of e-business has increased the number of users who access an
organizations' applications, as well as the number of applications that are
being deployed across a heterogeneous environment," explained Uppili
Srinivasan, senior director, Identity Management and Security Products at
Oracle. "This heightens the challenge and cost of safeguarding information
from unwanted users, which is exactly what our integrated solution is designed
to solve. The combined Oracle-RSA Security solution builds upon our identity
management capabilities, and delivers convenience, security and control to our
end-users, which can ultimately save them time and money."
"RSA ClearTrust software delivers a wide range of market-leading
capabilities that can add significant value for customers deploying Oracle
applications," said Jason Lewis, vice president of product management and
marketing at RSA Security. "RSA Security delivers one of the broadest
portfolios of identity and security management solutions on the market today,
integrating and adding value to Oracle Identity Management through enterprise
wide single sign-on. As a long-standing Partner of the Oracle(R)
PartnerNetwork, we're pleased to be able to deliver yet another solution that
delivers real value to our joint customers."
