Sevan Networks Announces Support of LDAP Directories

The Sevan WSA™ can be integrated with enterprise user provisioning and management systems though LDAP directories

SUNNYVALE, CA – Sevan Networks, Inc, an innovative provider of web access management solutions for businesses, today announced compatibility with LDAP user directories. This LDAP feature allows administrators to manage user access permissions through a single or multiple LDAP directories, while retaining the Sevan WSA’s powerful authentication capabilities. Sevan's unique approach to user management means that administrators can mix user management between external LDAP directories and the WSA's internal user stores.

"LDAP support brings the WSA in line with the needs of even the largest enterprise customers," said R. Bud Koch, VP of Marketing for Sevan Networks. "Those without the need for directory infrastructures can use the WSA as a stand-alone device. Those customers managing their users with LDAP-compliant tools can now quickly integrate the WSA into those infrastructures."

The LDAP features preserves Sevan's promise of ease-of-use and simple installation. The WSA requires no modifications to the directory, nor does the WSA write to the directory. The WSA supports all popular directories, including Active Directory.
The WSA's LDAP integration can be demonstrated immediately. The feature will ship as a standard feature in the fourth quarter. Users already owning the WSA-100 will receive the LDAP update at no charge through Sevan's Value Preservation program.
