Access Policy Manager® (APM®) web access management provides the ability to access web applications through a web browser without the use of tunnels or specific resources. With this type of access, APM communicates with backend web servers, forwarding requests from the client to web servers within a local traffic pool.
In a typical web access management connection, access occurs through a rewriting engine that rewrites links and URLs to and from the client. APM web access management eliminates the need for content rewriting, allowing access to the configured local traffic pool after the user passes through the access policy checks.
To support APM web access management connections, you need a pool of web application servers, an access profile and access policy, and a virtual server.
The web access management access type does not have a logout mechanism; as a result configuring a timeout is important. Access Policy Manager® (APM®) provides these options.
