Security Dynamics Offers Plug-In Security Solutions

Security Dynamics Technologies Inc., a provider of enterprise and data security solutions, rolled out SecurSight, a family of products designed to deliver standards- based, plug-in security solutions.

SecurSight products--including SecurID authentication and the SecurSight Desktop, Manager, Agents and Agent Toolkit--integrate the company's ACE/Server security software with public key cryptography and digital certificate security technology from RSA Data Security, the recently acquired DynaSoft AB, and VeriSign Inc.

SecurSight will also incorporate standard APIs from RSA's new Certificate Security Suite (see related story).

SecurSight offers customers security solutions that plug smoothly into an organization's existing infrastructure, the company said.

The product addresses a range of enterprise security needs, including: secure remote access via dial-up lines or virtual private networks; secure network access for local area networks; secure application access for single sign-on, intranet, extranet and e-mail security; and platform security for desktop and UNIX hosts.

"SecurSight is 'securityware'--a set of products and technologies that can be deployed throughout an enterprise in a modular, non-disruptive way. It helps organizations deploy new intranet and extranet applications securely and still get the most out of existing resources, including mainframe and legacy applications," said Dave Power, senior vice president of marketing and corporate development at Security Dynamics.

The SecurSight product family is scheduled to roll-out through 1998 in two major releases. Version 1.0 of the SecurSight Desktop, Manager, Agents and Agent Toolkit, with preliminary integration of the ACE and BoKS families, is expected to be available in the second quarter of 1998. Version 2.0 of the integrated SecurSight product family, including the SecurSight Desktop, Manager and Agents, is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 1998. Pricing details will accompany the product release.

RSA Data Security is a wholly owned subsidiary of Security Dynamics Technologies Inc.
