Novell today announced that Novell® SecureLogin received a Strong Positive rating in Gartner's report titled, "MarketScope for Enterprise Single Sign-On."* The Strong Positive rating is the highest available in the MarketScope.

Novell just released Novell SecureLogin 7 in September 2009. The latest version of its enterprise single sign-on solution drastically reduces the time required to SSO-enable applications in an organization from weeks to days-allowing customers immediate advantages from improved productivity and operational efficiency.

"We are committed to delivering solutions that help our customers and partners improve productivity and operational efficiency, while helping them to quickly realize a return on their technology investments," said Jay Roxe, director of solutions and product marketing for Identity and Security at Novell. "The benefit to customers is the ability to reduce administrative costs related to password resets, improve end-user and IT productivity, strengthen security and support regulatory compliance. In my opinion, Gartner's Strong Positive rating confirms our position in the market as a leading single sign-on solution that meets our customers' unique challenges."

Novell SecureLogin 7 operates seamlessly with Windows*, Web, Java* and enterprise applications. Thanks to a new wizard that automatically integrates many applications, customers and partners can realize the benefits of single sign-on much faster than with other offerings. Furthermore, with 64-bit support for Microsoft* Vista* and Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Novell SecureLogin 7 delivers greater interoperability with existing platform and operating system investments.
