Novell SecureLogin Adds Support for Windows Vista

Single sign-on solution updates features to enforce consistent password policy, address compliance mandates

Novell has enhanced its single sign-on solution, including support for Windows Vista, improved authentication capabilities, easier administration, and expanded applications support. Novell SecureLogin provides users with easy access to network and Web resources, using a single, secure login and works with existing directories.

Enhanced features in Novell SecureLogin include:

  • Novell SecureLogin now support Windows Vista, as well as other popular operating systems and Web browsers, including Windows XP, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox

  • Strong authentication features help organizations comply with new regulations, such as Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) guidelines for online banking (these require more than one factor of authentication)

  • SecureLogin enables integration with smart cards, biometrics, and proximity cards in conjunction with user names and passwords

  • An updated interface simplifies installation and administration and provides IT staff help when integrating with Novell identity and security management solutions; IT can centrally manage credentials, policies, and single sign-on activities on Microsoft Active Directory, Novell eDirectory, or a generic LDAP directory

  • Immediate support for enterprise applications, including SAP, Front.exe, Microsoft SQL Server, Citrix Program Neighborhood, Lotus Notes, and Novell GroupWise. Novell SecureLogin supports over 30 terminal-based applications, plus Java-based applications and Web applications.
