You can use IBM® Tivoli® Security products to build open, flexible, and scalable solutions to address business requirements in the areas of:
-- Identity and access management
-- Security information and event management

One of the many strengths of the IBM Tivoli Security offerings is that they are designed and implemented as cross-platform solutions. This design enables broad adoption of the solutions across the range of disparate platforms typically found in an enterprise. IBM Tivoli Security solutions are, therefore, an excellent choice as organizations move further towards service-oriented architecture (SOA) and the security integration challenges present in SOA.

In many enterprises, software solutions from Microsoft® are important components of the IT strategy. In this IBM Redpaper publication, we consider the use of IBM Tivoli Security solutions in Microsoft environments from a number of perspectives. In this paper, we discuss:
