Working with existing identity management process and infrastructure, Sxip Access now supports single sign-on and delegated authentication access for the salesforce.com Outlook and Office Editions and the salesforce.com Offline and Wireless Editions.

"Given the diverse requirements of our mobile workforce, we required use of the salesforce.com Office, Outlook, and Offline editions," said Andre Lewis, Associate Director Information Security, Irwin Home Equity (www.ihe.com). "Sxip was incredibly responsive to our needs -- by adding these features so quickly, we are able to roll out the enhanced Salesforce clients, without sacrificing security."

"Sxip's solution is an excellent example of the type of world class, sophisticated applications that Appforce enables with its powerful development and integration capabilities."

Sxip Access is available as a hardened, redundant appliance with optional support for two-factor authentication. Simple installation and ease-of-use provides enterprise IT departments with the ability to centrally manage data access and provision and de-provision end-users. With Sxip Access, single sign-on and delegated authentication are simple and scalable, lowering help desk costs and exceeding industry standards for privacy and security.

"With this release, Sxip Access extends its unique security capabilities to all web services that access salesforce.com. This enables customers to use the most efficient means of accessing Salesforce without having to expose their corporate passwords over the Internet," said Dick Hardt, founder & CEO, Sxip Identity. "The most popular productivity tools can now be securely leveraged with the leading on-demand CRM system."
