Ray Stanton, director of e-security solutions at Entegrity's Global AssurePartner member, Unisys, commented; "European organisations are realising that the openness of the Internet and extended enterprises has created a whole new set of security challenges and opportunities. Not only do you have to protect data from hackers and ensure the integrity of your systems but organisations now need to manage and let in the 'good guys'. We are working with Entegrity as part of offering our customers a complete solution, combining Entegrity AssureAccess with Unisys' existing best of breed product offerings." "Assure Access is definitely amongst the most complete solutions available in the market at the moment," said Jose Manuel Lopez, research analyst, Frost & Sullivan.

Entegrity AssureAccess 1.5 provides fine-grained access management for secure e-business applications. Using it, organisations will be able to securely open applications up to customers, suppliers, partners and employees over the internet, whilst maintaining guaranteed levels of security. In addition, the flexibility of the product enables organisations to personalise the options available to different individuals, meaning that a visitor only sees information that is relevant to them. This is based on real-world business policies making it a practical and workable solution for IT departments. -ends- For additional information contact: Bridget Drysdale Entegrity Solutions +44 (0) 1344 782 950 email@example.com Press contact: Mary Brain/Catherine Eyres Strategic Relations +44 (0) 1494 434434 firstname.lastname@example.org About Entegrity Solutions Entegrity Solutions provides complete, integrated access management and application security software and services, enabling secure e-business.
