Oblix Inc. is putting new features into its NetPoint access management platform.
The Cupertino, Calif., company this week will announce that NetPoint 5.0 is built on a Web services architecture and is fully XML (Extensible Markup Language)-enabled, giving users the ability to integrate third-party applications and home-grown software.
Oblix is touting Version 5.0 as the industrys first application with both AccessXML and IdentityXML. Another addition is its group management functionality, which lets users establish workflow-enabled identity profiles that help manage access rights across internal and external groups.
NetPoint 5.0 integrates with VeriSign Inc.s OnSite certificate service. NetPoint 5.0 is available now; pricing begins at $50 per user.
