that it will partner with SEITENBAU GmbH, which will be the exclusive
value added reseller of the company's Cams web single sign-on
and access management software for Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
Cams is a secure, flexible and affordable web single sign-on and
security policy server software solution that centralizes web application
security across Apache, IIS, SunONE and J2EE application servers,
such as BEA WebLogic, IBM WebSphere, JBoss and Tomcat.
"We're excited to partner with SEITENBAU to promote and sell
Cams in the Germanic countries," said Gary Gwin, Cafésoft
president and CEO. "SEITENBAU has a successful track record
supplying world-class web projects to government agencies in Germany,
Switzerland and Austria. Cams will provide SEITENBAU with a web
security software solution to more securely, quickly and cost-effectively
implement projects and get them into production for their customers."
Cams makes sites more secure and manageable by centralizing web
application security policy decisions and management, rather than
implementing security within each web application or server. This
centralized approach to web security enables companies to reduce
development and administration time, complexity and costs, while
improving time-to-market, site security and software life-cycle
flexibility. Cams also provides web single sign-on to eliminate
the cost, risk and pain associated with multiple user accounts and
sign-ons for the same site.
The Cams service oriented architecture deploys into heterogeneous
environments with an architecture that scales for high-volume sites.
The lightweight, Java-based Cams policy server is easy-to-install
and configure in small to large enterprise environments. Cams offers
an industry leading approach to user directory integration with
Microsoft Active Directory, LDAP servers, SQL databases and more.
Other product features include:
- Web single sign-on to web and J2EE application servers
- Access control based on roles (RBAC), HTTP query parameters,
database values, date/time, location and custom rules
- Simplified and centralized security policy administration
- Security event logging, analysis and real-time notification
- Flexible customizations via open APIs
- Cross-platform support including Windows 2000 and 2003, Linux
As an expert in web-based solutions, SEITENBAU works in many
heterogeneous customer environments, said Stefan Eichenhofer,
chief information officer for SEITENBAU GmbH. With Cams we
found a highly flexible, absolutely secure and affordable web security
software solution, which covers the security requirements and standards
of our customers. The strategic partnership with Cafésoft
will enable us to quickly develop a new web security business practice
and find new customers. We believe that there is a huge market for
Cams in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
