Verizon Business rolls out new security products for federal agencies

To allow its customers manage user identities across multiple systems and applications

By CBR Staff Writer

Verizon Business has introduced Symark PowerSeries security access-management software and applications, integrating security capabilities for UNIX/Linux servers and systems into the company’s portfolio of security products for government customers.

The company claimed that these new services, available under the US General Services Administration’s Connections contract, will help federal agencies comply with access control and accountability requirements associated with new Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) regulations.

The addition of the Symark offering reportedly extends Verizon’s Identification and Authentication (PKI/Certificates) and Identity Access Management portfolio by enabling organisations to control access to IT systems and information across diverse IT environments using UNIX and Linux data centres and operating systems.

Products available to government customers include: PowerBroker, PowerKeeper, PowerPassword and PowerADvantage.
