Secure Computing Corporation, a leading developer of specialized solutions that secure connections between people, applications and networks, has announced the Middle East launch of SafeWord PremierAccess 4.0 offering tight integration with Microsoft Active Directory. The solution is designed for companies that want to adopt identity and access management using their existing Microsoft Windows infrastructure.
With tight integration to Microsoft Active Directory, SafeWord PremierAccess 4.0 is designed to work especially well in Windows environments. Companies can plug PremierAccess into their existing Active Directory infrastructure and instantly administer strong authentication using the Microsoft tools that they already use and know. This allows them to meet their obligations to provide secure access to data with the least impact on cost.
“There is tremendous scope in the Middle East for state-of-the-art solutions that extend and defend organizations’ networks and applications,” said Sami Mulla, Director, Middle East, Secure Computing. “SafeWord PremierAccess 4.0 is ideally suited for vertical industries in the region such as healthcare, financial services, real estate and the government sector. The solution provides a highly secure, easy-to-use passcode system that replaces the static passwords that many companies still use today. Besides, it has negligible impact on customers’ existing infrastructure and ongoing costs.”
“In today’s regulatory environment, it is organizations’ obligation to protect and manage access to corporate data and mission-critical applications. Access begins with identity, and SafeWord PremierAccess strong authentication establishes proof-positive identity for all users accessing trusted network resources,” Mulla added.
The SafeWord PremierAccess 4.0 release expands Microsoft support with Windows Domain login and support for Terminal Services login, helping to extend authentication capabilities for internal users and users in remote locations. As customers roll out strong authentication, they can also rely on the PremierAccess Enterprise Solution Pack (ESP), which provides advanced user management, powerful reporting functionality, feature-rich access control, advanced Web-based user self-enrollment, and support for a wide range of authentication form factors.
PremierAccess is a key component of a complete Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution that addresses the challenges organization’s face in providing secure anytime, anywhere access to applications, data and network resources for every person who accesses the network – from employees and administrators to business partners and customers. The market for Identity and Access Management solutions is growing rapidly as organizations across a range of industries gain awareness to the risks associated with providing access to an increasingly mobile workforce.
