BEA WebLogic Enterprise Security (WLES) is a fine-grained entitlements product that was designed to enable centralized management of access to both application resources and application objects. WLES uses a centrally administered, distributed security services architecture that supports hierarchical policies across heterogeneous application environments. It also provides a unified and adaptable security infrastructure that enables a service-oriented approach to securing distributed applications. Further, it allows shared security infrastructure and services to be leveraged and re-used across the heterogeneous enterprise—improving security and increasing information technology (IT) efficiency.
