IBM buys Encentuate to accumulate

Lands security lab on Singapore

Reducing security risks from open source software

IBM today snapped up privately-held security software firm Encentuate for an undisclosed sum.

Redwood City, California-based Encentuate provides identity and access management software that simplifies the process of remembering different passwords and usernames.

Encentuate products will be folded into IBM’s Tivoli software line.

IBM Tivoli software manager Al Zollar said Encentuate technology would boost the vendor's capabilities in enterprise single sign-on by offering customers an easy to use solution with more flexible integration. He said the buy brought IBM strong authentication form factors, dynamic session management and compliance-focused auditing and reporting capabilities.

The tech giant, which last week had its acquisition of business management software firm Telelogic cleared by European regulators, also said today that it will create a new security lab in Singapore.

Engineers based there will work on new technology that could make computer apps more secure and easier to access. Encentuate’s R&D team will work with the lab. ®
