IBM has entered into an OEM relationship with Passlogix, a developer of single sign-on (SSO) solutions, to boost the SSO capabilities of its Tivoli products, the companies announced this month.
In particular, the addition of Passlogix's SSO capabilities will enable users of IBM Tivoli Access Manager for Enterprise to eliminate passwords and user ids for a range of applications and platforms, including Lotus Notes, enterprise software from SAP, and any application that runs on Microsoft Windows, the companies say.
"People are tired of keeping track of user names and passwords, so they resort to careless tactics like writing passwords on notes stuck to their computer monitors," says Hershel Harris, vice president of development for IBM Tivoli storage and security. "By teaming with Passlogix, IBM is extending our identity, access and compliance portfolio to help customers cut the clutter out of password management, while helping them satisfy compliance requirements." The software will ship in the next six weeks.
