SHANGHAI, Dec. 12 -- BEAWorld -- BEA Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:BEAS), a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software, today announced a new release of BEA AquaLogic(R) Enterprise Security, an entitlement and centralized policy management solution designed for custom enterprise applications across heterogeneous environments. BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Security 3.0 offers significant new features, including a redesigned and streamlined entitlements administration console, configurable attribute retrievers for administrators and new security service modules (SSMs) to more easily secure application integrations, business processes, diverse application environments and corporate data stored in relational databases. It also provides functional benefits to organizations looking to provide consistent security practices across their enterprise. BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Security 3.0 is scheduled to be generally available on December 14, 2007.
"When people think about SOA security, they generally think about message- level security. There is no question that message-level security is an important part of a SOA security solution, but there is more to think about than just protecting messages in transit," said Thanh Tran, senior vice president, AquaLogic products, BEA Systems. "Organizations need to consider a fine-grained entitlement management solution that combines centralized policy management with distributed policy decision-making and enforcement. This combination, along with the new improvements in BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Security 3.0, can help provide better management and control of critical applications and resources with uncompromised performance and reliability. As a result, organizations can extend the enterprise's ability to rapidly adapt to application usage requirements, regardless of where an organization does business."
The new features in BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Security 3.0 include:
-- Single entitlements user interface for policy management activities - BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Security 3.0 introduces a redesigned and streamlined entitlements administration console designed to provide a single view of entitlements for all applications protected by BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Security 3.0. This helps large organizations manage their application entitlements in one place, which can reduce operational costs with less complexity.
-- Configurable attribute retrievers for LDAP and relational database management systems (RDBMS) - BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Security 3.0 is designed with configuration-based attribute retrievers capabilities which enables an administrator, versus a developer, to specify how external enterprise information can be quickly integrated with defined security policies. This helps to lower the overall cost of security deployment and to greatly increase flexibility as new applications and data sources are added to the enterprise IT architecture.
-- Extended support for protecting applications, services and data in BEA WebLogic(R) Integration, BEA AquaLogic(R) BPM, IBM WebSphere and Oracle RDBMS - BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Security 3.0 continues to expand BEA's ability to help secure the enterprise, particularly in non-BEA environments, reflecting the company's commitment to SOA security and entitlements management. These new SSMs are designed to easily secure application integrations, business processes, diverse application environments and corporate data stored in relational databases.
"There is more to SOA Security than securing the message in transit or at the edge. To build reusable services, the identity based logic must be removed from the application into an authorization management framework," said Earl Perkins, research vice president, Gartner, Inc. "Taking authorization management out of the hands of application development teams and centralizing it into a standards-based framework is one of the first things architects should be thinking about when designing their SOA."
BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Security 3.0 is designed to help strengthen security and compliance, increase IT efficiency and enhance business agility by decoupling security logic from applications and by helping provide consistent policy administration, enforcement and auditing across the enterprise. It can help enhance overall enterprise security by leveraging and extending existing investments in custom and third-party security technologies through an open, interoperable and standards-based architecture. BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Security 3.0 is also designed to combine centralized security policy control with delegated administration, while still providing enterprise-class high performance, scalability and reliability.
