PRNewswire: Secure Computing Announces Availability of Safeword(TM) on Linux

“Secure Computing…from the RSA Conference 2000, today
announced first customer availability of SafeWord(TM), the leading
scalable authentication solution in the industry, on the Linux
operating system (OS). Traditionally, SafeWord running on the UNIX
platform has a history of being the highest performing, most robust
and scalable authentication solution available. SafeWord v5.1.1
will bring those benefits to the Linux platform providing
enterprise and service provider customers the safe secure
environment needed for e-commerce and e-business.”

Secure Computing’s SafeWord v5.1.1 positively identifies
users connecting to Web and other applications. It provides a
portable authentication (strong or medium) solution based on the
organization’s needs.
By providing a username and password,
either dynamic or fixed, generated by a SafeWord token, external
users are granted access only to the specific resources designated
by the organization’s security policy. Once authorized, users can
only access Web sites and applications as they are individually
authorized and all activities are monitored for auditing purposes.
SafeWord v5.1.1 interoperates with the widest range of firewalls,
communication servers and virtual private network (VPN) servers via
RADIUS and supports all major host/operating system platforms. It
scales to millions of users and is built to be fault tolerant.”

“We are excited to hear that Secure Computing will be supporting
their SafeWord product on Linux. As an early adopter of Linux, SGI
commits to making Linux work in the enterprise, and recognizes that
secure authentication is a necessary part of enterprise security in
today’s networking environment,” said Devin Cambridge, security
architect analyst at SGI. “By supporting their application on
Linux, Secure Computing will be able to provide the necessary
cornerstone for our worldwide network enabling us to use all the
advantages that Linux offers with the customer application support
necessary to maintain the integrity of our security
