Security vendor RSA has signed partnerships with both Microsoft and Accenture for its Identity and Access Management product range.
Software giant Microsoft is to build RSA's ClearTrust 5.5 web access management into its own identity and access software.
IT services firm Accenture is to team up with RSA and Thor Technologies to offer Accelerated I&AM Delivery Solution, an end-to-end identity management package.
"This is a logical progression of our relationship with Microsoft," said John Worrall, vice president of worldwide marketing for RSA.
"We'll be working at a business level to support our products with Microsoft. We're also working on new interoperability standards to improve integration with servers."
The system will only be available to Windows Server 2003 users. It is compatible with Internet Information Services 6.0 and supports Active Directory.
ClearTrust allows system administrators to manage users' web and virtual private network access by assigning policies to specific user identities.
The Accenture deal will see RSA working on providing secure systems in association with Thor, with each installed system being tailored to the specific needs of the client.
"Identity security and access management are critical business issues in all industries," said Dr Alastair MacWillson, global head of the security practice at Accenture.
