OBJECTSOFT STARTS BETA TRIALS OF SECURITY FRAMEWORK FOR JAVA APPLICATION DEVELOPERS

CHICAGO, IL – December 20, 1999 – Security is a major obstacle for many organizations that wish to deliver mission critical applications over the Internet. Distributed thin client applications are becoming more and more pervasive in the marketplace. For the most part, a portal is protected by a user ID and password. Once a user logs into the portal site, full access to applications is allowed. Mission critical applications need application security and the current security solutions are not robust enough to support application development.

Objectsoft is introducing beta trials for Sentopy Security - a portal security solution. Sentropy supports Java application development according to the Java Security API specification. Sentropy security is unique since its entire design is based on the concept of multiple organizations with many users. It ships with HTML portal and organization management tools to allow portal administrators or organization administrators that use portals to administer the access to applications for their user base. Administrators can grant and revoke services, add and remove services, reset passwords and more... Other user administration tools include automated password recovery and access change requests for end users.

The benefits of integrating Sentropy Security with your Java development are:

  • Java application security utilizing the Java Security API specification
  • Ability to create and manage the access to portals through a unified security system built for application security
  • Automation of the common end user requests for passwords and access changes
  • Adherence to standards like LDAP
  • Tools to suppport the full remote administration of the portal
  • Tools and applications to delagate the management of users to organizations that are utilizing the portal as a group.

The target marketplace for Sentropy Security is organizations who are developing or wish to develop applications to support external groups of users. Some sample marketplaces are:

  • Portals wishing to support and control external organization access to thin client applications built with HTML or WAP.
  • Business to business portal application development
  • e-Commerce sites supporting external dealer channels
  • Manufacturing that supports a dealer channel
  • Insurance companies that supports an agent channel
  • Health management that supports external users and organizations to complete business processes
  • Franchise industries that need to support their franchise channel
  • And many more...

Sentropy Security delivers with services from Objectsoft to create thin client and WAP portal applications. A rapid deployment force will assist clients in the implementation of Sentropy Security in client applications.

"The next wave of Internet revolution includes creation of applications that will truly service businesses and consumers. These will be mission critical, multi-user applications that need commercial strength security. Sentropy provides the developers of these applications with a complete solution based on industry standards like Java, HTTP,  cookies, ACLs, JNDI and LDAP.," states Vladimir Tokarskiy, Objectsoft, Inc.
