    IBM Ties Single Sign-On Software To Tivoli Platform
    IBM yesterday introduced a new version of its single sign-on security
    software that will let IT administrators manage end users' passwords from
    Tivoli's enterprise-management system. 
    IBM Global Sign-On version 2 is now available as a Tivoli Plus Module,
    enabling the single sign-on software to take advantage of the features of
    Tivoli's TME 10. Single sign-on systems such as Global Sign-On are
    designed to let end users access everything from E-mail to high-end
    production applications with one user ID and password. 
    The integration between IBM Global Sign-On and TME 10 will make user
    security easier to administer, says Kate Brew, product line manager of
    security for Tivoli, an IBM unit. For example, IT managers will be able to
    automatically install the single sign-on software--both client software
    and server agents--from the Tivoli Enterprise Console via the console's
    software distribution capabilities. 
    Other features include the ability to set rules from TME 10 that determine
    which users can log on to which systems and applications, and check in
    real time logon attempts, password resets, and other Global Sign-On
    IBM Global Sign-On 2.0 will be available in August. The Global Sign-On
    client will be priced at $75 per user and the Global Sign-On will be
    priced at $1,999.  -- Beth Davis
