Actuate BIRT Enhances Cisco’s Secure Access Control System (ACS)

Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ:ACTU), the leader in delivering Rich Internet Applications Without Limits™, today announced that Actuate’s value added products for BIRT, the leading open source information application development environment and a top level Eclipse project founded and co-led by Actuate, are enhancing Cisco’s Secure Access Control System (ACS). Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO), the leading supplier of networking equipment and network management for the Internet, has chosen BIRT and Actuate for the rich content presentation layer of ACS, an access policy control platform that helps businesses comply with growing regulatory and corporate requirements.

The combination of ACS, Actuate and BIRT provides rich interactive information for network monitoring and planning. Additionally, BIRT and Actuate’s value added technologies embedded in ACS empower users with a dynamic self-service, ad-hoc query and report design tool interface enabling users to quickly and easily access the data they need and to create reports, but within the parameters of IT control.

Incorporating new and more highly visual, interactive interface capabilities such as the ones provided by Actuate and BIRT within Cisco’s Secure ACS product provide organizations that require the greatest levels of reporting and control with a solution that achieves the following:

  • Aggregate views of system activity at the transaction level for both network access and device administration
  • Comprehensive view of network monitoring and planning, access problem detection and troubleshooting, and entitlement and compliance reporting
  • Web-based user interface that simplifies generating and accessing predefined and custom reports
  • Alert capabilities with thresholds and triggers on authentication activity for early detection of abnormal operation or trends

“We chose Actuate and BIRT to give Access Control Server customers improved reporting capabilities,” said Neil Mehta, Engineering Manager, Cisco Systems. “Actuate's reporting technology, embedded directly in ACS, allows network administrators to monitor and analyze who accesses the network and when. Previously users wanting to monitor network access had to gather the raw data from ACS and cobble together custom reports themselves. Now users can easily generate network authentication trend reports and display data for SOX compliance auditors without the help of IT.”

“We are excited to see Cisco utilize Actuate and BIRT to better reach the goals of a rich interactive Secure Access Control System,” said Nobby Akiha, senior vice president marketing, Actuate Corporation. “By the use of Actuate technology, Cisco demonstrates their commitment to helping its clients deploy and utilize Rich Internet Applications that help them better control of their resources, and ultimately the bottom-line.”
