Applications For Distribution of Confidential Information over the
Netegrity, Inc., (NASDAQ:NETE, Boston Stock Exchange:NTY) a provider of security products and services for intranet and extranet environments, today announced the release of SiteMinder 2.0 for enhanced Web security management.
SiteMinder 2.0 is the first commercial software product that enables companies to deploy secure mission-critical intranet and extranet applications with dynamic content. It has begun shipping to early users, including The Boston Globe, Parametric Technology, and US Web Utopia.
The intranet and extranet market, which SiteMinder addresses, is growing rapidly as companies provide access to mission-critical applications for their employees, customers, and business partners using the Web. International Data Corporation projects that nearly 1,000,000 intranet software servers will be shipping annually by the year 2000.
"Netegrity's SiteMinder family of products is a break-through for IS decision-makers charged with managing the risk of deploying production extranet and intranet applications," said Jim Hurley, Director for Operating Environments at the Aberdeen Group. "Aberdeen is recommending Netegrity for protecting Web-enabled business relationships -- that demand flexibility, capacity for growth, and adequate protection -- without getting in the way."
SiteMinder 2.0 provides applications with fine-grain access control to ensure that only authorized users can access privileged information. Using the product, a Web developer can control specific user access to restricted information on a site by selectively displaying information based on a user's security privileges. This secure access control enables a developer to provide access to particular sections of confidential content based on the level of authorization for a user or user group. This level of control is as fine-grained as an HTML button, field, URL or section of text.
The product dramatically improves a company's ability to develop and manage intranet and extranet applications, such as customer service and sales force reporting systems, on time and on budget. The software provides all user, session, and access control services for secure Web sites, eliminating the need for companies to develop these capabilities themselves. As a result, SiteMinder 2.0 significantly reduces the development time required to build these applications, saving companies hundreds of thousands of dollars in site development costs.
SiteMinder 2.0 provides a unique policy-based approach to managing security privileges. This management approach is user-centric, not file or device-centric, and greatly improves a company's ability to reliably manage intranet and extranet security on an ongoing basis.
"Netegrity's focus on Web security represents our commitment to providing timely solutions to everyday problems of securing intranet and extranet applications," said Barry Bycoff, Netegrity CEO. "SiteMinder 2.0 dramatically improves current Web security allowing companies to begin the important business of safely delivering confidential information to their customers, employees and partners."
Users of the product who rely on the Web for mission-critical applications find that they can deliver secure Web sites more quickly and reliably using SiteMinder 2.0.
"As a leading provider of Internet commerce solutions for Fortune 1000 companies, security and time to market are top priorities for us," said David Solomont, CEO of USWeb Utopia. "Using Netegrity's SiteMinder 2.0, we are able to build secure extranet applications for our clients more quickly and reliably than ever before."
"SiteMinder 2.0 greatly reduces the time it takes to build Web applications with dynamically tailored content," said Steven Horan, Vice President, Information Technology of Parametric Technology Corporation. "Its advanced technology will allow us to provide competitive information to our employees while ensuring that confidential information is accessible only to authorized individuals."
SiteMinder 2.0 is available now. Pricing for the SiteMinder Server starts at $3,995 for 200 users and the SiteMinder Web Agent is $595 per Web server. Additional costs include bronze, silver or gold annual maintenance. For more information please contact Netegrity at 617-890-1700.
