Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Technical Overview

The Solution

Access Manager reduces the administrative costs and eliminates the redundant user information associated with per-application solutions. Access Manager enables an administrator to assign specific rules or policies governing which information or services each user can access. Policy agents are deployed on application or web servers to process HTTP requests and to enforce active policies.

Together, a user’s information and associated access policies comprise the user’s enterprise identity. Access Manager makes it possible for a user to access many resources in the enterprise with just one identity.
