gPartner Chooses SecureAuth IEP to Resolve Authentication, Single Sign-On, and Identity Management Issues

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 20, 2011) - SecureAuth Corporation, the leader in identity enforcement, and gPartner, a Google Apps official reseller and premier Google partner, today announced a strategic alliance to secure and simplify access to Google Apps in France.

This partnership and our innovative approach to identity enforcement will allow us to better serve customers in Europe who are concerned about security and ease of use as they move to Google Apps."
