Opportunities Through Oracle's Passlogix Acquisition
On October 5, 2010, Oracle announced the acquisition of Passlogix, adding enterprise single sign-on (ESSO) and network authentication capabilities to Oracle's Identity Management Suite.
Since 2006, Passlogix has been a successful Oracle OEM partner and together we have provided complementary value to customers worldwide. This combination is expected to further enhance the value to customers as well as deeper alignment of technologies, for a more comprehensive ESSO offering.
Passlogix products already integrate with Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Manager and Oracle Internet Directory, which are currently available for partners to access and resell via the OPN program. After the close of the transaction, we expect that Oracle partners will benefit from being able to provide customers with the industry’s most complete solution that spans web access management, identity administration, entitlements management, fraud prevention, directory services, platform security services, enterprise single sign-on, and strong network authentication.
The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in 2010. Until the deal closes, each company will continue to operate independently.
