Sxip Identity and salesforce.com Introduce Free Security Auditing Tool for the AppExchange, Enabling Real-time Visibility and Benchmarking Against Access Control Policies

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA--(CCNMatthews - May 24, 2006) - salesforce.com Appforce Conference

Sxip Audit Dashboard Available for Immediate Use from Salesforce AppExchange

Sxip Identity, the leader in next generation Internet identity, and salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM), the market and technology leader in on-demand business services, today announced the availability of Sxip Audit for Salesforce. Built on the AppExchange on-demand platform, administrators can quickly and easily utilize Sxip Audit within their existing Salesforce implementation to enable real-time dashboard monitoring of potential access control security threats. Sxip Audit for salesforce.com is immediately available for deployment at http://www.salesforce.com/appexchange. The announcement was made today at Appforce, salesforce.com's first annual AppExchange partner, user and developer conference.

Best-practice industry standards and corporate regulations, such as Sarbanes-Oxley, require administrators to have visibility and auditability of their security policy compliance. On-demand applications have unique security needs that have previously not been addressed by existing identity management solutions. Sxip Audit enables salesforce.com customers to easily understand access control risks by providing real-time dashboard reports. Free of charge on AppExchange, Sxip Audit provides administrators visibility into possible vulnerability points such as unauthorized access attempts and password resets.

"Sxip Audit provides excellent insight into potential threats, giving administrators immediate visibility into their access control policy enforcement and enabling the quick assessment of potential compliance issues. This tool is a terrific complement to their existing Sxip Access identity appliance, which many of our Salesforce customers use for extending secure access and control through delegated authentication, single sign-on and user provisioning from their existing corporate directory," said Bobby Napiltonia, Senior Vice President, worldwide channels and alliances, salesforce.com.

"We developed Sxip Audit to make it possible for salesforce.com customers to have real-time monitoring and auditable proof of compliance for their Salesforce access control security policy," said Dick Hardt, Founder & CEO, Sxip Identity. "AppExchange made it easy for us to create and make widely accessible a free utility that provides immediate security audit value to Salesforce administrators."

Sxip Audit for salesforce.com is one of more than 250 applications available on the salesforce.com AppExchange, the world's first on-demand application platform. AppExchange provides unprecedented ease of customization and integration for Salesforce deployments, as well as enabling a whole new generation of on-demand applications that go beyond CRM. AppExchange enables all of these on-demand applications to be easily shared, exchanged and installed with one click into a customer's salesforce.com account. AppExchange can be found at http://www.salesforce.com/appexchange.
