As Web Portals take on increasing importance, particularly in creating self-service access for customers, business partners and employees, the need for enhanced security is growing rapidly. Critical information, ranging from high-value financial transactions, to customer order status and shipping dates, account balances and billing information, can now be accessed from any Web browser. This easy and ubiquitous access makes it easier to get information, but it also exposes organizations to new security risks. Existing security methods, such as SSL, don't provide critical security features as encryption, digital signatures and auditable logs of transactions within critical applications.

The SecureMethods Difference

SecureMethods has developed an innovative new approach to security that works at a variety of levels, providing you with transaction level security for your Web Portals. Our solution provides encryption, authentication, authorization and audit capabilities for all web-enabled applications. It eliminates the need for passwords while also protecting you from the problems inherent in IIS and WindowsTM server flaws.

The SecureMethods solution has been developed to address the issues of deployment and cost of advanced security solutions. Using an application-based implementation, the SecureMethods solution is unique in its ability to significantly reduce the cost of deployment and increase the ease of use for Web Portal users and trading partners.

Features and Benefits

The SecureMethods Gateway/Client Solution provides strong encryption for high value financial transactions, as well as additional layers of security through digital signatures and auditable transaction logs. Trading partners and customers easily gain the highest levels of protection at low cost.

User Success Story

A leading specialty manufacturer that successfully implemented SAP's R3 web-enabled Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution had a requirement to allow trading partners access to it's order entry and tracking system using a web portal. Unfortunately, the large transactions that needed to be conducted through the web portal would not be sufficiently secured through traditional SSL/VPN and password protected methods. They turned to SecureMethods Web Portal Solution to provide the level of security required. Capitalizing on the SM Gateway and no-cost SM Client solution, the company was able to deploy a highly secure, encrypted and digitally signed web portal solution within 30 days, allowing trading partners to enter orders with complete security.
