Netegrity Positioned in Leader Quadrant for Extranet Access Management.

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Netegrity, Inc. (Nasdaq: NETE), a leading provider of identity and access management solutions, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has placed Netegrity in the Leader Quadrant of the 2004 Extranet Access Management Magic Quadrant report(1).

According to Gartner, leaders are vendors who are performing well today, have clear vision of market direction, and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market. The Extranet Access Management Magic Quadrant acknowledges those software vendors who have developed strong identity administration, integration with user provisioning, and federated identity and Web services capabilities. Vendors must also have strong mind-share, ability to influence industry direction, and an installed base with growth in the past year.

According to the Gartner report, suite product presentations or integration with user provisioning and federated identity capabilities remain the primary functional differentiators in 2004.

Netegrity has maintained its position in the identity and access management market with:

--End-to-End Identity and Access Management Solution - Netegrity provides customers with an end-to-end and integrated identity and access management solution consisting of access management, identity administration, and user provisioning.

--Robust Identity Federation Technology - The Netegrity Universal Federation Architecture enables companies to securely share identity information across applications within the enterprise as well as to external partner companies by supporting a broad range of federation standards including Liberty, SAML, and WS-Security. With over 60 federation customers today, Netegrity has one of the largest numbers of federation customers in the market.

--Strong Customer Base - Netegrity solutions are licensed for more than 350 million users at nearly 850 organizations, including over half of the Fortune 100. Netegrity's software is running some of the largest and most innovative identity and access management deployments, with over 100 customers who have licensed over a million users.

"Netegrity is very pleased with its position in the Leader Quadrant of one of the most respected market research tools," said Stephanie Feraday, vice president of marketing at Netegrity. "Netegrity continues to set itself apart from the competition as an application stack-neutral vendor with a comprehensive and integrated identity and access management solution."
