Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Portal
Project Lead: Gil Zeilberger, Director, CTO Prime Services Group
Project Description: In response to the need for centralized visibility and oversight of application-level access rights, Credit Suisse's Prime Services Technology in partnership with the Central Infrastructure team created a centralized, fine-grained access control solution for its Prime Services hedge fund portal. Rather than custom-coding entitlements into applications, Credit Suisse sought a more flexible, secure, and reliable method of managing entitlements. The project was completed in compliance with the XACML standard and was crafted to support and be compliant with SOA standards and architecture principles. To secure the hedge fund portal, which runs on BEA WebLogic, the team integrated Securent's Entitlement Management Solution into its Java and .Net applications and into the company's heterogeneous IT stack.
