Corporate Hewlett-Packard customers will be offered products to allow remote, Internet-based access to their data using Microsoft?s Active Directory product in Windows NT.
The news comes as part of a deal between HP and Microsoft, announced yesterday. The users will get a product that gives them secure access to their data via the Internet, according to HP?s chief Internet technology officer, Ira Goldstein.
The deal, announced at the Microsoft Professional Developers? Conference in San Diego, claims to offer data security for both internal and external access.
Jim Allchin, senior vice president of the personal and systems business group at Microsoft, said Active Directory will give developers a base to build customised solutions. "We are pleased to work with HP to enable the collaborative enterprise to work seamlessly with Windows NT Server," he said.
The companies admitted directory services have previously not been able to securely handle both Internet and enterprise customers but claimed the deal will produce unified ways of storing data. HP plans to allow customers to connect to business applications and systems through local Internet service providers and ease the burden on administrators. Its products should be launched when NT 5.0 is released and will fit within HP?s Praesidium security initiative.
