USP Secure Entry Server®

Switzerland ICT

USP Secure Entry Server® (USP SES) is a Web Application Firewall (WAF) that's listed in the Gartner WAF Magic Quadrant. It offers web application protection, authentication and authorization features including Single Sign On and Federation, all in one optimized and scalable product. Using Office365 in the cloud for employees, enabling partner access to an organization's own applications without managing the partner's user identities, or allowing customers to use their cloud identities – USP SES offers all of this. It is a vast secure application firewall that is best described on the web application security page of United Security Providers. 

The UI for USP SES is written in Vaadin, to ensure not only security but also high usability – both inside the product itself but more importantly for the products helping protect from the outside world. It has an easy-to-use graphical web user interface, support for pre-built templates, configuration changes at runtime without downtime, and other powerful tools, such as elastic search for log analysis. USP SES makes it a joy to realize complex web access management use cases.

"Vaadin enabled us to easily develop a web user interface for USP SES offering unparalleled user experience."
- Andreas Münger, CTO

Besides Vaadin Framework, the configuration based UI is based on a multi-tier architecture using Spring and Spring Data in the business and data layers. Using Vaadin allowed USP to develop a modern looking new UI with Java of which they had plenty of knowledge in the development team. Besides offering a vast number of already existing widgets, it also allowed USP to develop custom tailored widgets to fit their specific needs.

"The tight collaboration with the Vaadin developers led to a fast and satisfying result for our custom widget!"
– Lukas Funk, Product Owner
