SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - November 19, 2008) - Rohati Systems, Inc., the leading supplier of Agent-less Access Management solutions, today announced that respected IT security writer Ellen Messmer has placed Rohati's Transaction Networking System™ (TNS™) on Network World's exclusive '10 IT Security Companies to Watch' list. Rohati's TNS is the only identity and access management solution that was recognized in the prestigious industry ranking.

In May 2008, Rohati came out of stealth mode and introduced the TNS platform as a cost-effective, fast-to-deploy solution that enforces and monitors fine grained access management policies across applications and data center resources such as Microsoft SharePoint and fileshares without the need to deploy agents or code applications.

Wrote Messmer in her feature: Why it's worth watching: Designed by former Cisco engineers, TNS aims to upend the traditional perimeter firewall through its own method of controlling user access to applications via Layer 7 access-control lists.

"Rohati was founded with the goal of changing the economics of delivering business critical access management capabilities. With the launch of the TNS platform we have brought to market an agent-less access management platform that is significantly faster, easier and lower cost to deploy and operate," said Rohati CEO Shane Buckley. "It is very gratifying to receive this validation from Network World and to be named to the '10 IT Security Companies to Watch' list.
