Secure Computing SafeWord PremierAccess Recognized as Standout Security Product.
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 22, 2002
PremierAccess Spotlighted in Information Security Magazine's "Hot
Pick in Information Security"
Secure Computing Corp. (Nasdaq:SCUR), a leading provider of enterprise network access control solutions, today announced that SafeWord(TM) PremierAccess(TM) has been recognized as the "Hot Pick in Information Security" for January 2002 by Information Security magazine. The PremierAccess authentication, authorization and access control solution was praised for its flexible user access management capabilities, and its ability to support multiple authentication options and application servers. The product spotlight is available on line at www.infosecuritymag.com/articles/january02/departments_products2.shtml .
Andy Briney, editor-in-chief of Information Security, wrote, "The Achilles' heel of many authorization solutions is their architectural invasiveness and lack of support for multiple authentication and application servers. But this is one area where PremierAccess shines. The solution interoperates with a wide range of authentication options (passwords, certificates, tokens, smart cards, biometrics), VPNs (Alcatel, Check Point, Certicom, Cisco, Nortel, Microsoft, SafeNet), Web servers (IIS, Apache and iPlanet) and other applications (Citrix, RAS, SSH, Oracle, Novell and more). Another neat feature is its ability to provide `brokered' authentication to other systems, such as RADIUS servers and LDAP databases."
"Hot Pick" is Information Security's monthly "Editors' Choice" of a new or recently updated information security product or service. The item selected for Hot Pick meets the following criteria in the judgment of the magazine's editorial staff: unique or innovative approach to a persistent or emerging security problem; significant technical or functional advancement over competitive solutions; realistic, practical solution that can be implemented in everyday enterprise IT environments; and interesting to the majority of the magazine reader audience.
Launched in the fourth quarter of 2001, PremierAccess has already been selected by over 30 enterprises to provide access control for Web, VPN and network resources.
"Our primary concern is providing secure access to critical and sensitive information," said Chris Fischman, IT systems engineer at MedSolve, Inc. "We chose PremierAccess because it allows us to manage all of our access points with a single product, and it was a breeze to deploy to our end users with the Web-based, user self-enrollment."
"Too often, deploying new security solutions is like open heart surgery -- the recovery and quality of life are fine -- if you live through the procedure," said Eric Hemmendinger, research director, security and privacy with the Aberdeen Group. "Secure Computing's PremierAccess will be a relief to IS buyers that have lived through the agony of security product deployments gone wrong. The company has scored a perfect 10 with the right combination of functionality, manageability, flexibility, and ease of deployment."
PremierAccess gives you control over who can access network applications with powerful capabilities including the Universal Web Agent, user self-enrollment, multiple authentication options and role-based authorization. PremierAccess provides an effective and manageable solution for an organization's access control needs.
"We are pleased with PremierAccess' rapid acceptance in the marketplace and recognition by industry experts," said Jay Goldlist, vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Security Division at Secure Computing. "These factors make it clear that PremierAccess is a unique and timely solution for access control to critical network resources."
