A 4-in-1 plug-in set of tools providing easily administered Single Sign On for iSeries

Chicago , Illinois (COMMON Expo), March 14, 2005 – Better On-line Solutions (BOS) releases their latest 5250 Client software package: BOS?NOVA Secure. This is an all-in-one solution for totally secure iSeries emulation, delivering security from the workstation through the TCP/IP net to the organization level. BOS?NOVA Secure employs iSeries Kerberos technology and tools, eliminating the need for applications adaptations while preserving existing System Administrator environment.

BOS?NOVA Secure packages TN5250e Client, 128-bit SSL Encryption, a centralized Manager Module along with Single Sign On ability. The TN5250e product is the award-winning BOS?NOVA TCP/IP. SSL encryption enables users to take advantage of the encryption available with OS400 V5R1 or above. The Manager Module allows for control and update of all distributed copies of the BOS?NOVA Secure product, enabling the Administrator to push out configuration, control and updates sent out and lock out user changes to the software distributed over the network. Single Sign On (made possible with OS400 V5R3) is supported on this new Client with the Kerberos technology, positioning BOS as the only other software company in the Midrange market besides IBM who offers this powerful feature to its users. Single Sign On allows the user to synchronize his authentication on Windows Servers with the iSeries, therefore eliminating the need to memorize multiple user id and password combinations.
