ClearTrust SecureControl Wins Editor’s Choice Award from Network Computing Magazine


Securant Technologies – the company that secures e-business – today announced that its Web access management system, ClearTrust SecureControl, has earned the coveted Editor’s Choice award from Network Computing magazine. In a review of Web-based policy management products that will appear in the May 28 issue, ClearTrust SecureControl was judged to be the best access management solution in a head-to-head comparison with products from Baltimore Technologies (NASDAQ:BALT), Entegrity Solutions, Entrust Technologies (NASDAQ: ENTU), and OpenNetwork Technologies. Netegrity (NASDAQ: NETE) declined to participate; telling the magazine its product is too complex to be accurately tested in a competitive review. The complete review is currently available online at

“We focused our evaluation on ease of integration, product management and performance. Based on these criteria, ClearTrust SecureControl emerged as our Editor’s Choice. The package’s Java- and Web-based management clients, performance results and custom intrusion detection impressed us the most,” said Network Computing Magazine’s editors. “Securant’s ClearTrust SecureControl outperformed the competition in every category; it has unique features, a superb management console and lightning performance.”

“Ease of integration with existing IT systems, manageability, and scalable performance are the three most critical requirements for infrastructure software that supports a company’s eBusiness,” said Eric Olden, Chief Technology Officer, Securant Technologies. “Network Computing’s Real-World Labs, which are respected and recognized for their thorough testing methodologies, have provided further validation that ClearTrust SecureControl is the best and most enterprise scale system for centrally protecting Web-based resources and transactions.”
