CA IDM / SiteMinder

Introduction:

CA SiteMinder provides a robust access management solution for all your web-based applications, both SAP and non-SAP. The SiteMinder SSO Agent for SAP is the connection between CA SiteMinder and SAP, enabling centrally administered single sign-on between your organization’s Web applications and your SAP applications. Additionally, CA SiteMinder allows you to use a variety of authentication methods to further protect your sensitive applications and data. For all the promise of the web to increase revenues, manage costs, and deepen relationships with users, it also raises a new class of security, management, and compliance challenges. As your IT organization deploys web-based applications, a fundamental question looms:

How do you let business in while keeping risk out?

The answer is CA SiteMinder. With advanced security management capabilities and enterpriseclass site administration, CA SiteMinder provides the centralized security management your organization needs to authenticate users and control access to both SAP and other web-based applications.

Like any other standalone application, SAP applications have their own security systems requiring a separate log-on process. While SAP does provide single sign-on (SSO) capabilities between individual components, it does not integrate access security with other Web-based applications throughout the organization. As organizations have moved to a Web-based delivery approach for the majority of their applications, the need to extend SSO across the entire enterprise has become increasingly important. In addition, organizations are also seeking to standardize and centralize specific aspects of their IT infrastructure, including security management. These factors result in a strong desire to have a single Web access management system that can provide a centralized authentication, authorization, auditing, and SSO experience across all web-enabled applications.

Layer 7 gateways use a callout to a CA SiteMinder Policy Server to make an access control decision.
