Alliance Partner Alert
Citrix Announces Partner Agreements to Further Solidify Citrix’s Identity Management and Secure by Design Strategy
Dear Alliance Partner,
Today February 14, 2005, Citrix announced agreements with alliance partners Secure Computing Corporation and VeriSign Inc. to promote Citrix® MetaFrame® Password Manager as the recommended enterprise single sign-on (ESSO) solution to customers and prospects.
Secure Computing will recommend Password Manager as their preferred ESSO solution for customers and channel, in addition to working with Citrix to provide education on the benefits of secure access and the importance of Secure by Design access infrastructure. The partnership is an extension of Secure Computing’s long-standing commitment to Citrix’s vision for access infrastructure solutions, which began with the launch of Secure Computing’s SafeWord® for Citrix® MetaFrame® in 1993 to positively identify users who access MetaFrame applications.
VeriSign and Citrix will initiate channel education programs that highlight the importance of the Secure by Design capabilities of MetaFrame Password Manager for VeriSign customers and channel members. Citrix and VeriSign have also agreed to work together to ensure compatibility of Citrix MetaFrame Password Manager and VeriSign Unified Authentication, creating a system which ensures that secure credentials can be provisioned and verified by disparate software and hardware platforms while giving enterprises better control over their security environment.
Citrix access infrastructure addresses one of the basic technical challenges businesses face today - the need to provide secure access to business-critical information over both trusted and untrusted networks from a myriad of controlled and uncontrolled devices. These partnership announcements demonstrate Citrix’s industry leading commitment and continuing investment in our alliances with the world’s leading security vendors who embrace and extend Citrix access infrastructure solutions.
