Computer Associates International, Inc. announced the general availability of eTrust SiteMinder Secure Proxy Server (eTrust SiteMinder SPS) r6, a feature-rich, high-performance proxy gateway that centrally manages access to back-end web content.

eTrust SiteMinder SPS enables IT organizations to significantly lower administration costs and more effectively secure their Internet-facing servers, while ensuring that users are provided with role-appropriate access to online resources.  It complements eTrust SiteMinder, the industry's leading Web access management solution, to ensure the integrity of network Demilitarized Zones (DMZs) and the centralization of security policies.  It also enables IT to manage access to hosted applications remotely.

Enhancements in eTrust SiteMinder SPS r6 include WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning) support, which empowers systems administrators to securely edit and manage files on remote web servers.  The new version also supports a wider range of platforms and a variety of authentication schemes, including two-factor tokens.

eTrust SiteMinder SPS operates in the DMZ between firewalls, separating Internet users and back-end resources.  It supports multiple session schemes, including cookies, SSL session IDs, device IDs, IP addresses, and URL re-writing.  Proxy rules control the flow of requests to destination servers based on specific request parameters, including URI query string, host name and HTTP headers.
