AssureAccess Makes it Easy to Add Complete Access Management to Protect Application and Web Servers
BEA eWorld 2001, DALLAS, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ — Entegrity Solutions(R) Corporation, a leader in application security software and services, today announced support for BEA WebLogic Server(R) 6.0, the industry’s most advanced Java application server. Entegrity AssureAccess boosts the native security of WebLogic Server, providing businesses with integrated single sign on (SSO) for Web and application server environments. AssureAccess also provides centrally managed and policy-based access management for WebLogic application security that scales to meet the high-volume demands of mission-critical application servers and Web servers.
Entegrity AssureAccess speeds time-to-market, boosts developer productivity and saves IT costs by making it easier for businesses to add consistent, rule-based authentication, authorization and auditing to all their applications. With AssureAccess, businesses gain the ability to manage WebLogic application access through flexible, dynamic and customizable business rules or policies in the same way they manage their business, enabling them to respond to changing business or market conditions without having to make any changes to the underlying applications. Based on open standards, implemented in Java, and highly scalable, AssureAccess will support the changing technology and business requirements of the future.
“Today’s announcement reinforces our commitment to support BEA WebLogic Server, providing current and future WebLogic users with the next-generation access management they need to securely extend their mission-critical applications to customers, suppliers and partners,” said Geoff Charron, vice president of access management at Entegrity. “With AssureAccess, WebLogic users will have additional levels of policy-based Web and application server security for authentication, authorization and audit that will adapt as their business grows.”
“As enterprise customers build complex private portals that incorporate powerful Java application servers, it is essential that the shared Web security infrastructure integrate with and augment the native security services of the application server,” said Phil Schacter, director, network strategy service, the Burton Group. “Entegrity’s AssureAccess both filters requests for WebLogic applications as they arrive, and enables each application to programmatically interface with the security manager service. This gives the customer the flexibility to externalize security logic from each Web application or to customize applications with special security requirements.”
The award-winning BEA WebLogic Server 6.0 is the industry’s most advanced Java application server for building, running and future-proofing high-volume, mission-critical e-business applications. Based on the most advanced implementation of the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) specification, BEA WebLogic Server has been selected by the majority of the Fortune Global 500, Fortune e-50, Forbes Super 100 and Business 2.0 100 to power many of today’s most sophisticated Web and e-business applications.
“As the premier provider of product information solutions for enterprises and net market makers, RightOrder needed a highly scalable access management solution with open and flexible architecture,” said Ron Fountain, director of business development at RightOrder. “Entegrity AssureAccess is written in pure Java and has the tightest integration with our BEA WebLogic(R) Servers. Entegrity’s open API’s and robust authentication and authorization capabilities, bundled with superior support and integration services made Entegrity a clear choice.”
