ACA IT-Solutions deploys OpenSSO at Telenet for fine-grained access control
By superpat on Dec 11, 2008
Telenet is a leading supplier for media and telecom services in Belgium, providing broadband Internet, multi-media, fixed-line and mobile telephony and digital TV services to residential and professional clients in Flanders and Brussels. When they needed fine-grained control of employee access to internal applications, they turned to ACA IT-Solutions, probably the largest and most successful independent Java solution provider in Benelux.
ACA, having long experience with Sun Access Manager, selected OpenSSO to provide fine-grained access control, using it as a central policy administration point (PAP) and developing a distributed policy decision point (PDP) to allow massive scaling and fault tolerance.
Read the full questionnaire to learn exactly why ACA selected OpenSSO for this critical role, and how "being able to dive into the source code often proved to be very useful for documentation's sake or making very subtle customisations." As Serge Craeghs of ACA writes, "Hey, who doesn't want to be in control? :)". Who indeed?
