Adobe expands their SSO efforts

Today, we announced an expanded OEM agreement with Adobe Systems Incorporated to help organizations simplify their identity and access management needs. The agreement provides single sign-on to Adobe LiveCycle products in Java environments with Active Directory. Basically, with this capability, organizations can strengthen authentication and authorization for electronic forms, process management and document security.

The last sentence of the quote from Jonathan Herbach at Adobe really sums up Quest's strategy nicely:
Our customers need to know that they have more secure and compliant access to the documents we help them manage, and they want this access without the need to manage multiple identities and access roles across their heterogeneous environments," said Jonathan Herbach, product manager for LiveCycle Rights Management at Adobe. "With Quest's single sign-on technology included in the LiveCycle suite, we can offer our customers increased security without implementing more infrastructure."

Without implementing more infrastructure - aka, yet another directory service.
