ClearTrust 4.7, an update to RSA's Web access management software, adds a data abstraction layer designed to allow the software to integrate more easily with a company's existing data sources, according to a statement from RSA. Part of that integration includes native support for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).
The new version also tightens integration with other RSA products. ClearTrust 4.7 will be available within 45 days and is priced on a per-user basis, with a one-user licence running at $27 (£19), a price that drops for volume purchases, said John Worrall, vice-president of product management at RSA.
In an effort to help developers beef up security for PDAs, mobile phones and other wireless devices, RSA also announced the BSafe Micro Edition product line. It consists of BSafe SSL-C Micro Edition, BSafe Cert-C Micro Edition and BSafe Crypto-C Micro Edition, according to a statement. Taken together, the products will help developers build mobile and wireless applications that can support digital payment, signing and identity, signed code and other security features, RSA said. The software will be available within 60 days and pricing will vary based on royalties and use, according to Worrall.
Another new product, Keon e-Sign, will enable Web forms to be signed digitally through a Web browser plug-in, according to RSA. The software aims to let businesses move transactions that require a physical signature online and still make them legally binding, the company said. Keon e-Sign will be available within 30 days priced on a per-user basis; exact terms were not immediately available.
RSA also announced the addition of 13 companies to its ClearTrust Ready partner programme. The programme ensures interoperability between products from RSA and from its partners. The new members include BEA Systems, Business Layers, Oracle, Siebel Systems, and Waveset Technologies.
