Offers singular IAM process and consistent user experience across enterprise, cloud, and mobile devices.
NetIQ today announced NetIQ CloudAccess 2.0, the latest version of its single sign-on (SSO) virtual appliance that securely extends existing IAM processes to include cloud-based SaaS applications. With CloudAccess 2.0, IT teams can more easily extend access controls beyond the firewall to SaaS applications in order to protect sensitive data and deliver a one—touch, consistent experience for users from their desktop, laptop or mobile device.
"Enterprises continue to be drawn to the cloud and to SaaS delivery models for their promised efficiencies and economies of scale," Gartner stated. "However, they must address the same IAM requirements as for on-premises applications, and their IT management disciplines and technologies continue to be challenged by SaaS adoption."1
As SaaS application adoption increases, users must manage more and more logins and passwords, creating a risk that poorly managed accounts will lead to a data breach. Furthermore, these disparate identities cannot be properly provisioned and deprovisioned by IT, making it difficult to meet compliance and governance requirements to certify who has access to what assets.
CloudAccess 2.0 extends the convenience and security of SSO that has been established for on-premise applications to those in the cloud, helping organizations protect valuable, sensitive or regulated information. It also delivers a secure yet simplified access experience to mobile users. Once users enter their PIN, they gain one-touch access to both web based and native applications on iOS and Android devices, giving them anywhere, anytime access while on the go.
With CloudAccess 2.0, IT teams are afforded the ability to:
"SaaS use in the business world is exploding, and IT teams face the challenge of keeping up with the pace of adoption while meeting both the demands of highly—mobile business users and protecting corporate information," noted Geoff Webb, Senior Director, Solution Strategy at NetIQ. "CloudAccess 2.0 makes it simpler and easier and more secure for users to access these cloud based services—whether it be from a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone—giving IT a greater advantage in solving this challenge."
