RSA Security and TIBCO to Enhance Identity Management Infrastructure

1/12/2004 - RSA Security Inc. (NASDAQ: RSAS), the most trusted name in e-security®, announced that TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX), a leading enabler of real-time business and the world’s largest independent business integration software company, as demonstrated by market share and analyst reports, has joined the RSA Secured® Partner Program. The TIBCO PortalBuilder® e-business integration platform has been certified “RSA Secured RSA ClearTrust® Ready” following extensive integration testing. TIBCO customers can now leverage RSA ClearTrust web access management software within their TIBCO PortalBuilder environment to deploy a comprehensive e-business solution with the necessary identity and access management capabilities needed to create a competitive advantage.

TIBCO PortalBuilder is a platform that enables companies to deploy interactive business services with a single, consistent and personalized view to underlying corporate data and systems. TIBCO PortalBuilder leverages the integrated application network and B2B infrastructure to provide an integrated, personalized set of real-time content and interactive services. As a result, customers, vendors, partners and employees throughout the entire business community have up-to-date access to business information and services. RSA ClearTrust software protects portal content and provides a transparent and unified single sign-on experience for TIBCO PortalBuilder users. The TIBCO PortalBuilder establishes the identity of the user to serve personalized content and also supports user management via the RSA ClearTrust technology.

“TIBCO PortalBuilder is a de facto integration standard making interoperability testing and certification with leading identity and access management solutions, such as RSA ClearTrust software, vital,” said Ram Menon, chief strategy officer, TIBCO Software Inc. “Being an RSA Secured Partner reinforces our commitment to supporting the standards required for developing a secure services oriented architecture that speeds deployment, improves business agility and ensurse systems interoperability.”

RSA ClearTrust web access management software is designed to be a primary component of any identity management system. It allows organizations to provide secure access to web applications within intranets, extranets, portals and exchange infrastructures — with transparent, single-sign on capabilities for a positive user experience. Enabling such access can improve communication and facilitate business with customers, strengthen partner relationships and bolster employee productivity. With RSA ClearTrust software integrated with the TIBCO PortalBuilder, customers will be able to receive the full benefits of identity management within their TIBCO e-business environment.

The RSA ClearTrust Ready Program ensures that application servers, portal servers, user provisioning applications, enterprise applications, directories and data stores have proven interoperability with the RSA ClearTrust web access management solution. Through rigorous testing and certification, this program brings added assurance to customers that the products they are buying are interoperable with industry leading products, achieving faster time to deployment and lower overall cost of ownership. The program also provides technical and marketing assistance to strategic partners interested in offering their customers the benefits of web access management, without having to develop a comprehensive security solution of their own. Today, RSA Security has more than 70 partners certified as RSA ClearTrust Ready.

“TIBCO is one of the pioneers of e-business infrastructure, creating a foundation for many of today’s leading companies, and by certifying TIBCO PortalBuilder as RSA ClearTrust Ready, our two companies are ensuring that TIBCO customers have access to the best possible identity and access management solutions on the market,” said Stuart Cohen, director of partner development at RSA Security. “As the demand for single sign-on and identity and access management solutions increase, our standards-based approach to implementing web single-sign on helps us maintain a faster, seamless experience for business partners such as TIBCO.”
