Novell Joins Alliance

Novell has joined the SAP Global Security Alliance to deliver a combined solution that addresses risk management and IT security

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Novell today announced it has joined the SAP Global Security Alliance to deliver a combined solution that addresses key customer issues in risk management and IT security. Novell will bring its deep expertise in identity and access management to joint customers by making products such as Novell(R) Identity Manager and Novell eDirectory(TM) available through the SAP alliance program. Facing stringent regulatory guidelines from Sarbanes-Oxley to Basel II, companies need to secure corporate data as well as document and audit user access attempts. Novell's strategic approach to security and identity management not only solves these complex issues, but can also streamline and automate time- and labor-intensive processes.

Under the alliance, SAP will provide a single point of reference so customers can easily obtain expert advice and acquire the most appropriate mix of methodologies, technologies and consulting skills. The SAP Global Security Alliance program offers a combination of products and specialized implementation and/or quality assurance services that can be packaged for customers, helping them face challenges such as security, identity management and compliance.

"Novell and SAP have a long history of working together," said John Judge, vice president of worldwide alliances for Novell. "As a SAP Global Technology Partner, Novell provides SAP users with access to the full range of functions offered by its security and identity solutions. Novell eDirectory is the first directory service to be certified by SAP for integration with the SAP Web Application Server and all mySAP components. We are pleased to extend that relationship even further as a member of the Global Security Alliance as we offer our security and identity management expertise to SAP customers."

Novell Inc. (Nasdaq: NOVL)
