Access MatrixTM Universal Web Access (UWA)
AccessMatrix Universal Web Access (UWA) is a comprehensive web application access control, single sign-on and security administration system. Leveraging on the AccessMatrix technology, UWA fulfils the most rigorous form of application security by providing security administration, authentication, authorization, and audit services (4As) to web applications within your organization. With UWA, multiple web applications are able to access a common set of security services through integration with our AccessMatrix security server.
IMPROVING SECURITY FOR WEB-BASED APPLICATIONS
The UWA is designed to secure web based applications. The AccessMatrix hierarchical model allows organizations to deploy a single security infrastructure for easy integration with multiple web applications. All access control decisions are made by the AccessMatrix security server. The UWA solution is highly scalable, promotes software re-use and reduces application maintenance and support efforts.
PROVIDING FLEXIBLE AGENT TECHNOLOGY AND POLICY-DRIVEN ACCESS CONTROL
With AccessMatrix's Web Security Agents (WSA), UWA protects access to the web resources within web servers based on the access control policy defined by the security administrators.
This policy-driven approach greatly simplifies user administration and application integration. Access control information can also be retrieved via HTTP header information.
This enables organizations to provide fine grain access control on web resources. UWA is built on the AccessMatrix framework and UWA inherits the salient features of AccessMatrix, in addition to its own features.
