Entrust Technologies Ltd. this week will unveil digitalcertificate technology with tight ties to PeopleSoft and SAP enterprise resource planning applications. The technology is intended to make it easier for IT administrators to secure supply-chain and other Internet applications.
Entrust is using application programming interfaces from PeopleSoft and SAP to reduce the integration work required to deploy its digital certificates for securing these vendors' ERP applications. The software also offers single sign-on so users can have one identity for all their applications, rather than multiple certificates and passwords--even in multivendor ERP environments.
The PeopleSoft interface is available now; the SAP interface will be available next month. Entrust also plans support for other ERP vendors' applications in the first half of 1999. Licenses are $159 a user, with volume discounts available. The SAP and PeopleSoft interfaces are provided at no additional charge.
