Sun OpenSSO Enterprise in Gartner's Magic Quadrant - And on GlassFish v3 Prelude
By pelegri on Dec 16, 2008
Gartner recently released the Nov 2008 report on Web Access Management and Sun is now listed in the leader's quadrant (see image). This is good news, both as a recognition of our efforts and also because some customers use the Magic Quadrant to evaluate the viability of some vendors.
Sun's product in this space is OpenSSO 8 Enterprise - the commercial distribution of OpenSSO. The product version runs on GFv2 but it can also be used on GFv3 prelude; just need this small workaround :-) Of course it will be fixed in the final v3.
There's been quite a bit of activity around OpenSSO; other recent news include connectivity to SalesForce, and to SugarCRM, Using simpleSAMLphp, and even a .Net prototype. If you want to track all OpenSSO news, you may want to check SuperPat (Pat Patterson) and Smoking Monkey (Daniel Raskin).
