Cloud-based IAM solution
February 2016, News, Cyber Security
OneLogin is launching a new set of capabilities addressing the needs of enterprises with hybrid on-premise and cloud-based IT environments. In addition to new RADIUS and LDAP interfaces, OneLogin has also acquired San Diego-based Cafésoft, a provider of on-premise Web Access Management (WAM) software.
OneLogin’s cloud-based identity and access management (IAM) solution has been deployed by thousands of organisations ranging from fast-growing tech unicorns to multinational enterprises. The consistent feedback from larger enterprises with more complex IT environments has been that they would prefer IAM vendors who are able to handle both their cloud-based applications and their on-premise applications.
The new LDAP service allows enterprises to connect to OneLogin’s cloud directory via the LDAP protocol, which expands OneLogin’s coverage of applications beyond those that support federation through SAML and WS-Trust.
The new RADIUS service supports the full RADIUS protocol and strong authentication methods, such as EAP-TLS. Enterprises can use this capability within corporate network devices, such as VPNs and Wi-Fi access points.
In addition to these new interfaces, OneLogin has completed the acquisition of Cafésoft, a provider of Web Access Management (WAM) software with customers such as NASA and TiVo. The company’s WAM solution provides the security middleware to easily integrate identity into heterogeneous web environments.
The technology allows OneLogin to provide a more comprehensive identity solution for hybrid environments, including simplified on-premise WAM and a complete replacement for CA Single Sign-On (formerly CA SiteMinder), Oracle Access Manager and others.
“Our goal is to manage all identities that touch corporate data, whether it be in the cloud or behind the firewall,” said Thomas Pedersen, CEO of OneLogin. “These new authentication interfaces combined with Cafésoft’s Web Access Management technology allow us to reach even deeper into the enterprise and provide a new level of speed and integrity to our customers’ businesses.”
