RSA Security Extends Relationship with Oracle to Provide Robust Support for Identity and Access Management

RSA ClearTrust(R) software and Oracle Identity Management provide integrated

solution to enable enterprise wide identity and access management across

heterogeneous environments

May 04, 2004, 01:00 ET from RSA Security Inc.

    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."
