Securent Integrates With Sun Microsystems
SAN FRANCISCO -- Securent, Inc., the award-winning leader in the entitlement management market, today at the Burton Group Catalyst Conference 2007 in San Francisco announced that it has enabled integration of its flagship product, the Securent Entitlement Management Solution (EMS), with Sun Microsystems identity management portfolio. This is part of an effort to provide Sun customers with fine-grained access control to help them meet their compliance needs. In addition, Securent is announcing today the results of rigorous benchmarking tests conducted on the SolarisTM platform at Suns labs. Securents results demonstrate that EMS can scale linearly on the SolarisTM 10 Operating System (OS) to support customers most demanding performance and scalability requirements.
We welcome Securents efforts to enable integration of their Entitlement Management Solution with Suns identity and access management products, said Don Bowen, distinguished marketing director, Sun Microsystems. We see a great opportunity to offer our customers fine-grained access controls and visibility that will enable them to better address their security and compliance requirements.
Securent EMS is now proven interoperable with Sun JavaTM System Access Manager, the first identity and access management solution to extend security for Web applications and JavaTM technology applications to federated and Web services environments. This capability gives customers the ability to take an authenticated identity credential from Suns JavaTM System Access Manager and use it to enforce fine-grained access control across disparate applications. As a result, customers can benefit from a seamless end-to-end solution for protecting their information and resources with consistent authentication and unified access control.
