RSA SECURITY TEAMS WITH OPENCONNECT TO DELIVER A MAINFRAME, MIDRANGE AND UNIX SINGLE SIGN-ON SOLUTIONOpenConnect joins the RSA Secured® Partner Program and helps joint customers use their mainframe, midrange, and Unix environments for Single Sign-On
DALLAS, TEXAS (September 23, 2003) — OpenConnect Systems, the premier supplier of secure Mainframe-to-Web solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with RSA Security to deliver an integrated OpenConnect WebConnect SSO and RSA ClearTrust® Web access management solution for mainframe, midrange and Unix systems. WebConnect SSO takes full advantage of RSA ClearTrust software to arm organizations with the highest possible security. With this strategic partnership, OpenConnect and RSA Security provide organizations with a consolidated identity and access management solution for mainframe, midrange, Unix and Windows systems that dramatically lowers help desk support costs, improves security and delivers a rapid return on investment.
With WebConnect SSO the mainframe becomes an RSA ClearTrust software protected resource within the enterprise. WebConnect SSO works in tandem with RSA ClearTrust software to provide secure, seamless access to applications on mainframe, midrange and Unix systems. Once a user has been authenticated and granted access by RSA ClearTrust software, WebConnect SSO seamlessly and securely completes the sign-on process into multiple host systems and applications - all with a single click on a Web page.
RSA ClearTrust software, an integral part of a comprehensive identity and access management solution, is designed to be an easy-to-deploy, rules-based solution that centrally controls and manages user access privileges to Web-based resources based on definable user attributes, business rules and security policies.
“We are pleased to welcome OpenConnect to the RSA Secured Partner Program,” said Stuart Cohen, director of partner development at RSA Security. “WebConnect SSO, delivered with RSA ClearTrust software, allows customers to leverage and integrate their existing mainframe environments with an overall identity and access management solution, opening up secure access to a large quantity of data that had to be replicated or was inaccessible with past approaches.”
OpenConnect has received RSA SecurID and RSA ClearTrust Certifications which validate WebConnect SSO’s interoperability with RSA Security’s array of identity and access management solutions. These certifications signify that WebConnect SSO complies with and takes full advantage of RSA Security’s market-leading security technologies.
“We partnered with RSA Security to deliver a complete end-to-end single sign-on solution that is cost effective and easy for enterprise customers to implement," said Stuart Burris, president and CTO at OpenConnect Systems. "We are extremely excited about the complete trusted identity and access management solution that both RSA Security and OpenConnect bring to the table.”
