  • Committed to providing customers comprehensive, best-of-breed identity and access management capabilities in a wide range of deployment options, Oracle today announced Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On (ESSO) Anywhere.
  • A key component of Oracle Identity Management, Oracle ESSO Anywhere extends the Oracle Enterprise Sign-On Suite and is the first comprehensive offering from a major vendor that lets enterprises host single tenant ESSO in a private cloud to provide users with secure access to heterogeneous enterprise resources from anywhere, anytime.
  • With Oracle ESSO Anywhere, the newly enhanced Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Suite helps employees, partners, suppliers and other enterprise affiliates to streamline access to Web-based, client server and mainframe enterprise applications from anywhere, anytime, virtually eliminating the need to remember and maintain multiple, diverse passwords and authentication credentials for each system and application.
  • With Oracle ESSO Anywhere, enterprises can increase operational efficiencies, reduce costs, enhance security, improve the user experience, boost productivity and accelerate regulatory compliance.
  • Oracle Identity Management is a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

Secure User Access

    • Automatic Version Control of Deployment Packages: Enables superior version control, simplifying the ESSO software packaging and deployment to users' desktops and workstations. Additionally, it helps eliminate the need for administrative privileges for updates on target workstations -- simplifying the process of updating and securing target workstations.
    • Automatic Updates, Patches and Rollback: Facilitates a way to apply software updates and rollbacks from a central location and provides the ability for executables and data to remain on end users' workstations or be deleted upon the end of a session on the remote desktops.
  • Additionally, the newly enhanced Oracle ESSO Suite includes several key components that help improve authentication capabilities, decrease security costs and deliver efficient access and self-service capabilities, including Oracle ESSO Logon Manager, Oracle ESSO Password Reset, Oracle ESSO Authentication Manager, Oracle ESSO Provisioning Gateway, and Oracle ESSO Kiosk Manager.
