Sevan Networks Launches Innovative Web Access Management
Appliance That Eliminates User Passwords
The Sevan WSA
is a completely self-contained, hardened appliance that sets a new
cost of ownership standard for web access management systems
SUNNYVALE, CA – Sevan Networks, Inc, an innovative provider
of web access management solutions for businesses, today introduced
the Sevan WSA-100, which increases user convenience by eliminating
web access passwords. The WSA is the only web access management
product that is completely self-contained in a hardened appliance
which operates transparently to web servers, applications, and client
software. This unique capability makes the WSA easy to install and
manage, and results in a very low cost of ownership. Moreover, the
WSA does not put current web operations at risk or interfere with
future upgrades to the web site or web server software.
"As more business-critical information and processes become
web enabled, convenient and cost-effective access management for
employees, partners, and customers is essential," says Matthew
Kovar, CFA, Yankee Group Director of Security Solutions & Services.
"The Sevan WSA addresses this web access management issue in
a unique way. The product relies on public key authentication to
increase user convenience and strengthen security. However, deployment
and management are simple and the cost of ownership is low because
the product doesn’t require an infrastructure like other public
key based solutions."
"The Sevan WSA is the only access management product that
uses a direct trust model to authenticate web site users, closely
matching accepted business practices and legal frameworks in use
today," said Charles Williams, President and CEO of Sevan.
"Our unique approach also totally eliminates passwords –
a major source of user frustration and a high business expense.
This advantage plus the very low cost of ownership make the Sevan
WSA a compelling alternative to costly software-based access management
The Sevan WSA is generally available now.
