An IBM Redpaper publication


IBM® Tivoli® Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On enables organizations to automate access to corporate information, strengthen security, and enforce compliance at the endpoints. Organizations can efficiently manage business risk, achieve regulatory compliance, decrease IT costs, and increase user efficiency using this application.

Its foundation is built on the feature set in every version in an effort to better adapt itself to the changing IT needs in an organization.

(Encentuate was the company that originally developed this application.
