WALTHAM, Mass. -- Novell today announced the worldwide availability of Novell(R) Access Manager 3, its next-generation access management solution. Novell Access Manager 3 is a single access management solution that protects both Web and enterprise applications and helps organizations enhance user productivity, streamline administration, increase security, and ensure compliance.
"Organizations can improve security, simplify the user experience, and relieve administrative burden with Web access management (WAM) systems," noted Mark Diodati, identity and privacy analyst with the Burton Group. "WAM systems are all but essential for organizations with high value, heterogeneous Web applications and Web single sign-on needs."
Novell Access Manager 3 provides a single solution for enterprise security and access control that combines Web single sign-on and seamless remote access. This release now fully integrates standards-based identity federation, enabling customers to securely share identity information across organizational and technical boundaries. Moreover, Novell Access Manager 3 features an innovative approach to simplify federation deployments by dynamically translating between identity federation standards, including Liberty Alliance and Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML). Novell Access Manager 3 also features an integrated, clientless Secure Sockets Layer Virtual Private Network (SSLVPN) to enable seamless access control and role-based authorization to back-end applications. It also incorporates enhancements for multi-factor authentication, data encryption, fine-grained access, role-based access control and scalable enforcement of enterprise-wide access polices.
