With so many devices, software licenses and access points across your enterprise, a solid identity management service ensures only authorized users can access the proper assets. Regardless of whether a user is seeking permission for a network-based program or an internet application, your role-based provisioning is stored and managed. And, all those users; all those applications–too many passwords to effectively administer.–CloudAccess provides a secure and easy way to manage and synchronize credentials throughout the enterprise.
Identity Management is full-featured cloud-based offering that addresses many challenges facing enterprises. It allows organizations of all sizes to successfully:

FROM OUR BLOG: Read about the “secret sauce” of user provisioning
Cloud computing has been around for years, the cost of traditional identity management products (hardware, software licenses and deployment) as well as lack of resources and expertise has made it difficult for many organizations to take advantage of the significant opportunities that cloud computing brings to an enterprise. With the popularity of cloud model and SaaS applications the need for an affordable, manageable identity management products to oversee users and user access to applications, both within the enterprise and in the cloud, is even more evident.

Proven Technology. CloudAccess technology has been successfully utilized in large organizations and government agencies supporting millions of users. CloudAccess Identity Manager is a multi-tenant, high performance and scalable system built on the latest SOA and web services technologies. There are no agents to install.
Single sign on (or SSO) has moved beyond simply providing a convenient, means to centrally access applications. It has become a nexus of control for IT departments over which applications can be distributed to whom. While enforcing secure policies and reducing password sprawl, SaaS SSO from CloudAccess establishes the highest levels of multifactor authentication
Utilizing the latest identity federation standards, Cloud Access SaaS SSO provides complete access management capabilities for all enterprise network content, applications and services across a broad range of internal platforms and directory services as well as the ability to quickly extend those capabilities to external partners, collaboration solutions and SaaS applications.
Complete, centralized and unified access control that offers your employees, partners and customers fast, secure access to a full range of HTTP and non-HTTP environments, resources and applications from any location.
Authenticating users and administrating which applications and assets they need can be a full time job. Simply managing passwords is an expensive proposition in itself.
CloudAccess unifies the convenience and security of single sign on (access management) with the controls of identity management. It enables the secure delivery of essential information and applications to your employees, partners, suppliers, and customers via secure SSO. It also scales to meet your growing business needs with flexible administration tools that can support either centralized or distributed administration.
In today’s enterprise, more than 30% of web applications are incompatible with web access management (WAM) software. Simply, most web access management products lack the agent to protect the web applications, or the application is a legacy solution that does not follow standard protocols for single sign-on. This limits what types of web applications can be protected.
We offer users a single username and password for seamless access to systems and resources from multiple channels—without time-consuming multiple logins and other access hurdles. And, while providing an enhanced level of identity protection,our unique gateway also automates many functions including reporting and auditing on user activity needed for compliance.
CloudAccess’ Identity Gateway “bridges” this issue by extending access management to encompass all web applications. Deployments can now be extended to be inclusive of those applications that do not integrate with policy agents alone. Additionally, Identity Gateway interoperates, out-of-the-box, with all management solutions.
Most importantly, your organization can on-board any web application without ever modifying or touching the target application again, significantly reducing the development required to protect web apps.
All done as a security-as-a-service solution from the cloud.
Using Identity Management (IDaaS), you can connect to thousands of SAML and Non-SAML applications. The connectors listed here allow for federated provisioning (SAML, SAML-2). For specific information on our advanced adapters/connector, click the link to access a PDF datasheet.
