Oracle announces general availability of Oracle(R) Enterprise Single Sign-On Suite

Oracle Identity Management Delivers Customers Unified Single Sign-On and Authentication Across Web and Non Web-based Applications

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Dec. 6, 2006 -- Building on its comprehensive portfolio of identity and access management offerings, Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL) today announced availability of the Oracle(R) Enterprise Single Sign-On Suite. The Suite is a component of Oracle Identity Management and helps simplify and improve security by providing single sign-on, access control and password management for virtually any application including Oracle's Web and non Web-based software such as Oracle Database, Oracle Forms, Oracle Discoverer, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle's PeopleSoft Enterprise and Oracle's Siebel applications, as well as non-Oracle applications.

Financial services, healthcare, government, telecommunications and organizations across all industries with extensive legacy applications and compliance requirements are positioned to benefit from Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Suite's ability to provide single sign-on for mainframe, client/server and Web-based applications. With the Suite, organizations can provide secure access to their enterprise resources without burdening users with remembering and maintaining separate passwords and authentication credentials for each system and application. This helps customers strengthen security, improve the user experience and lower costs by decreasing the risks and resources associated with multiple application passwords.

"Over the past year, customers, partners and industry analysts have lauded Oracle for its commitment to delivering a comprehensive family of best-in-class identity and access management software that can be used across heterogeneous IT environments," said Hasan Rizvi, vice president, Security and Identity Management Products, Oracle. "The availability of Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Suite underscores this commitment and further enables customers to improve security throughout their entire organizations and to more easily meet compliance mandates while reducing costs."

Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Suite is comprised of five components that improve authentication capabilities, decrease security costs and deliver efficient access and self-service capabilities, including:

-- Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Logon Manager -- enables individuals to securely sign-on using a simple username and password for their Web-based and legacy applications and insulates end-users from the time-consuming, insecure, error-prone task of periodically changing and updating their passwords;

-- Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Password Reset -- provides the ability to set flexible, custom policies for users to recover lost or forgotten desktop passwords through secure, self-service interfaces in Windows environments, helping reduce helpdesk costs and resources typically associated with password resets;

-- Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Authentication Manager -- allows organizations to use a combination of tokens, smart cards, biometrics and passwords to control access to their applications throughout the enterprise and meet regulatory mandates such as HSPD-12, while laying a foundation for converging physical and logical security;

-- Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Provisioning Gateway -- enables organizations to leverage their identity administration software, such as Oracle Identity Manager, to automatically provision application accounts that can subsequently be accessed through Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Logon Manager; and

-- Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Kiosk Manager -- allows individuals to access applications more quickly and securely even at multi-user kiosks and workstations, where individual users operate from multiple locations throughout the day.

Availability

The comprehensive Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Suite is now available worldwide and is priced on a per user basis. Due to strong demand for Windows desktop password reset capabilities, customers have the option to use Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Password Reset as part of the overall Suite or purchase it as a standalone product.
