2AB, Inc. Announces iLock Security Services for Enterprise Access Management.

Business Editors & Technology Writers

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 3, 2002

2AB, provider of Trusted Solutions for Distributed Business announces availability of iLock(TM) Security Services version 4.0 for Java, CORBA and Web Services environments. iLock Security Services is a mature access control and policy management technology. It includes user management supporting groups and roles, role-based access control, entitlements and multi-rule time-based access policies. The new release expands the product capabilities to include consistent user and policy management across diverse infrastructure technologies (such as Web Services, J2EE and CORBA).

The release introduces jLock(TM) for native Java and J2EE environments and webLock(TM) for Web and Web Services. orbLock(TM), a security service for CORBA environments has been enhanced to include CSIv2 - the standard for secure interoperability between J2EE and CORBA. Also available with this release is iLock Enterprise, an enterprise access management product that leverages industry standards for secure interoperability of Java, CORBA and Web Services under a shared security policy and management domain.

The lack of auditable access control is a serious threat for enterprises that face customer and consumer demand to expose services on the web while meeting legislated privacy and confidentiality requirements. "Today, it is almost impossible to manage consistent auditable access control policy across an enterprise. This is a serious risk and the administrative cost of protecting information is staggering. We are not satisfied with making it possible - our goal is to make it easy," stated Carol Burt, 2AB Chief Executive Officer.

iLock Security Services version 4.0 BETA has been released to iLock 3.2 customers and qualified development partners. General availability of iLock Enterprise, jLock, and orbLock 4.0 is scheduled for October 2002 on a variety of operating platforms. See for information on joining the development partner program. Qualified applications will be eligible to defer significant licensing costs until the iLock secured solution is ready for production.
