RSA Security Delivers Web Access Management to Help Create Trusted e-Business Processes; Newest Version of RSA ClearTrust(R) Software Introduces Native Support For LDAP and New Levels of Interoperability.

SAN JOSE, Calif., RSA(R) CONFERENCE -- RSA Security Inc. , the most trusted name in e-security(R), today announced RSA ClearTrust(R) 4.7 software, the newest version of its Web access management solution. RSA ClearTrust software helps enable trusted e-business processes by providing a centralized infrastructure for securely facilitating user access with single sign-on to Web-based resources. RSA ClearTrust 4.7 software introduces a new Data Abstraction Layer (DAL) architecture for data access across the enterprise, native LDAP support and significant levels of integration across the RSA Security product line.

Organizations worldwide are already using RSA ClearTrust Web access management to solve the basic business need of enabling users -- employees, customers, business partners and suppliers -- to easily access Web resources distributed across the enterprise. New applications that require secure access can take advantage of RSA ClearTrust Web access management to govern user access and create a trusted e-business process.

"RSA ClearTrust Web access management enables user access to our tools for product development, procurement and supply chain management, allowing registered Covisint users to sign-on once, and seamlessly move between only the applications and resources they have been authorized to access within the Covisint site," said Dave Miller, chief security officer at Covisint, a global solutions provider for the automotive industry. "Our complicated business requirements stemming from the many levels and types of users we have in our system demands an access management solution that can work with user data no matter where it resides, and can easily snap into our IT infrastructure. RSA ClearTrust 4.7 software achieves this with its highly productive data abstraction layer and high level of interoperability."

RSA ClearTrust 4.7 Web access management introduces a new architectural component, the data abstraction layer, which is designed to ensure integration and native interoperability with customers' existing infrastructure and data stores, including native LDAP support. The new DAL architecture is designed to allow administrators to grant or deny access to Web resources based on user information located in any data repository throughout the enterprise, leveraging and enhancing existing directories and custom user data stores. The integration with existing infrastructures is designed to speed integration, lower overall cost of ownership and ensure short and long-term investment protection.

"Enterprises want to leverage their investments in existing directory and data base repositories," said Phil Schacter, director and senior analyst for the Burton Group. "The RSA ClearTrust software data abstraction layer is a strong architectural solution that is designed to give customers the flexibility to store and access identity and access policy information in an existing repository without concern for product vendor or schema."

Additionally, RSA ClearTrust 4.7 Web access management software delivers new levels of interoperability and integration, and highlights RSA Security's commitment to provide best-of-breed solutions that deliver lower total cost of ownership by leveraging customers' existing and future IT environments. RSA ClearTrust 4.7 software includes tight integration across the RSA Security product line, including RSA SecurID(R) authentication, RSA Keon(R) digital certificate management, and RSA BSAFE(R) encryption, strengthening the security base of the product and assuring seamless integration. In related news, RSA Security today announced its RSA ClearTrust Ready Program that is designed to provide further out-of-box integration and interoperability with industry-leading solutions.

"The breadth of out-of-box support in RSA ClearTrust 4.7 Web access management and the new underlying DAL architecture is reflective of RSA Security's commitment to providing solutions that support the wide range of IT environments of our enterprise client base," said John Worrall, vice president of product marketing at RSA Security. "The interoperability achieved with RSA ClearTrust 4.7 Web access management is designed to assure that our customers will achieve rapid time to market, lower total cost of ownership and ease of integration."
