Borland Beefs Up Security of AppServer and VisiBroker

Entegrity Solutions Corporation, a leader in Trust Solutions for securing business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce, and infrastructure provider Inprise/Borland (Nasdaq: INPR) have signed an agreement allowing enterprise clients of Borland AppServer and VisiBroker product lines to seamlessly incorporate the trust and security of Entegrity's industry leading access management offerings.

"The Entegrity technology compliments the existing Security Services in the Borland Application Server," said Thomas Torf, VP and general manager of the enterprise business unit of Borland. "This relationship provides a higher level of security to customers developing Internet business applications."

Borland AppServer currently provides a range of security services to protect sensitive information and operations from unwanted and unauthorized access including: increased security at the JavaBean level, tightly integrated SSL and HTTPS, secure access through firewalls, and other authentication services. Entegrity's AssureAccess will further enhance these security services by providing "fine-grained" access decisions and consistent corporate policy practices for authentication, authorization, audit and administration of access to corporate information resources. The agreement covers Entegrity's most recently announced, industry leading AssureAccess product in addition to their NetCrusader offerings.

Under the terms of the agreement, the sales and marketing functions of Entegrity and Borland will work as a team to provide dynamic access management and security solutions for enterprise clients. In working closely together, the Borland and Entegrity sales teams can bring sophisticated, leading edge security solutions to the current Borland users and dramatically increase the appeal and competitiveness of new client proposals.

Inprise Corporation recently announced a name change back to Borland and a refocusing on developer services. The legal name of the company will continue to be Inprise Corporation until the name change process has been completed during the first quarter of 2001. The company is de facto referring to itself now as Borland. Once the name change is completed, the company also expects to change its Nasdaq market symbol from "INPR" to "BORL".
