RSA pumps up passwords
RSA Security is renewing its focus on improving the security of user passwords. The company plans to announce RSA Sign-On Manager, a rebranded version of its SecurID Passage product that the company claims will make it easier for enterprises to manage user passwords.
The relaunched product will be available in the third quarter of this year and will be able to manage user log-ins for around 90 different enterprise applications using single sign-on technology licensed from Passlogix. A new RSA technology called IntelliAccess will allow users to recover forgotten user names and passwords, saving expensive help desk calls, RSA said.
