IBM Security Access Manager can help you address the growing incidence of advanced web threats and risks associated with mobile, social, and cloud access while demonstrating compliance with security regulations. It can also help you manage growth and complexity of web application environments, control escalating management costs, and address the difficulties of implementing security policies across a wide range of web and application resources. IBM Security Access Manager works as a proxy in front of web applications to centrally manage web applications, or through authorization and authentication plug-ins added directly into a web server or application server.
What is new
For the many new enhancements in IBM Security Access Manager V7.0, refer to the Description section for details.
IBM Security Web Gateway AMP 5100 V7.0 is a next generation web access management offering, in the form of a physical appliance, designed to provide access, authentication, and session management for web applications and helps protect those applications from external threats. IBM Security Web Gateway AMP 5100 includes a reverse HTTP proxy (WebSEAL) that is located between users and application servers. This proxy comes with its own policy server (managed via a local management interface) and LDAP registry, but clients can, and often will, use the co-requisite IBM Security Access Manager product as an alternate, easily managed external policy server, and IBM Directory Server as an external registry (or other supported external registry).

A large enterprise is required to manage and protect user access for an unknown number of internal or external users. The enterprise decides to buy two IBM Security Web Gateway AMP 5100 appliances to be hosted in the DMZ. Additionally, the enterprise decides that they need to run IBM Security Access Manager Policy Server and IBM Tivoli Directory Server on four processor cores of an IBM POWER7 server. The pricing would be as follows:
User Value Unit (UVU)
UVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. UVU Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) are based on the number and type of users for the given program. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the number of UVUs required for licensee's environment as specified in the program specific table. The UVU entitlements are specific to the program and type of user and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with UVU entitlements of another program or type of user. Refer to the program specific UVU table.
Processor Value Unit (PVU)
PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at the website below) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores. The PVU table can be found at
Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the web page below). If using full capacity licensing, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using virtualization capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at
* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.
Appliance Install is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Appliance Install is an installed copy of the program that is included on a single unit of supporting hardware. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each Appliance Install of the program.

|Statement of good security practices|
IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
|IBM Electronic Services|
IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.
The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.
The Electronic Service Agent is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM . Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
