Edge offers data integration

Edge Technologies Inc. and Tarantella Inc. have teamed up to provide government agencies, the military and businesses access to data and applications on a range of computing platforms via a secure Web portal.

The companies last week introduced enView 4.0, which integrates Edge Technologies' enPortal secure portal software and Tarantella's Enterprise 3 remote access and Web-enabling tool.

Based on Extensible Markup Language and Java, enPortal collects and combines data on information technology, workflow and business performance from multiple systems and databases. The consolidated information is then presented through a single, Web-based dashboard. Tarantella's Enterprise 3 provides secure Web access to enterprise mainframes, Microsoft Corp.'s Windows platforms, IBM Corp.'s AS/400 midrange computing systems and Java, Linux and Unix applications.

Securify gives top-down view

Securify Inc. has taken its security management software to the next level to give information technology managers a top-down view of the overall security posture of their networks.

The company last week unveiled SecurVantage Enterprise Global, which consolidates data from up to 250 network monitoring points and presents it in real-time through a Web-based management console. Security officers can now measure the extent to which their global networks comply with corporate security policies.

The software works with other SecurVantage products including SecurVantage Studio, which provides policy development and analysis; SecurVantage Monitor, which captures network traffic for policy conformance; and SecurVantage Enterprise, which aggregates and analyzes data across the enterprise.
