The world's first software suite to centrally control and automate
enterprise-wide access to Web-based resources - without forcing
costly re-engineering of legacy IT systems - makes its European
debut today.

The advance, by Securant Technologies, means organisations can now
deploy robust application-level access control for staff,
partners, customers, and suppliers, without the frequently
associated time and cost penalties.

It combines Securant's established and widely deployed ClearTrust
SecureControl access control product with a new data abstraction
and translation layer. The result - ClearTrust Enterprise
Transparency Architecture - delivers protection for Web
applications, content and transactions by working with user
information stored virtually anywhere in an enterprise including
LDAP directories, legacy databases, mainframes and other identity
infrastructures.

Alternative solutions only work with single directory types, often
forcing the porting of all user information to a central source
and mandating the purchase and support of what to many
organisations may be an otherwise unnecessary directory
technology.

"This is all about cost and speed of deployment," says Securant's
VP of marketing Tom Bennett. "We're the first vendor to say: leave
your legacy directories in place, leave your data where it is.
We'll work with exactly what you have, wherever it is."

Securant's Enterprise Transparency Architecture already provides
seamless integration with leading Web servers and application
servers. In the coming months, it will add integration to major
packaged web-enabled enterprise applications, mainframe Web
security, protection for XML-based transactions, and wireless
application security.

The company also announced today version 4.6 of ClearTrust
SecureControl, featuring native integration with BEA WebLogic 6.0
application servers, Citrix MetaFrame applications, and the
iPlanet Portal Server. With LDAP Plus, Version 4.6 also integrates
with LDAP directories using the robust Supplier-Consumer model
enabling organisations to take advantage of enterprise LDAP
directory deployments.
