CUMBERLAND, ME – September 26 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — NCT Simple Signon is a vendor neutral tool which ties IBM Lotus Domino(TM) based sites to corporate intranets, channel partner networks, and third party applications. It provides a seamless mechanism for accepting user credentials without requiring additional prompts, and passes credentials to other sites. NCT Simple Signon, from Northern Collaborative Technologies (NCT), allows companies to create powerful, information-rich sites that seamlessly integrate content hosted at many locations while maintaining highly granular access control.

“We’ve been developing channel partner web sites for ten years, and nearly all of them include content located at other sites,” Andrew Pollack, President of Northern Collaborative Technologies explains. “With this tool, we are able to provide access to content on many platforms without complex synchronization issues or loss of security.” Asked how NCT Simple Signon is different from other “single sign-on” solutions; Pollack said, “Most single sign-on tools require all of the participating sites to agree on a single configuration or product. That falls apart if any of the sites serve multiple customers or are managed by a different team. NCT Single Signon is much less demanding. Nearly any site can take part.”

NCT Simple Signon is a ready to use solution and includes documentation to hand out to remote sites so they can quickly connect. The product also includes a guide and toolkit to allow developers to create their own sign-in solutions or to participate in existing solutions that in the past were unavailable to them. NCT Simple Signon is the firm’s third product in the IBM Lotus Domino space, following on the success of “NCT Search” and “NCT Compliance Search.” Trial versions of these products can be found at the company’s website; http://www.thenorth.com.

Northern Collaborative Technologies is based in Maine and provides services to clients worldwide. Andrew Pollack, NCT’s founder, brings a special emphasis on helping clients build tools that allow them to communicate securely with their vendor channels. Northern Collaborative Technologies won the prestigious “Lotus Beacon Award” in 2003 for “Excellence in Partnering.” Andrew was also a finalist for the 1999 Lotus Beacon Award for “Best Web Solution.”
