Mountain View, CA, July 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Increasingly, enterprises are turning to the cloud to implement a successful identity and access management (IAM) strategy that provides a seamless experience for users while ensuring robust security. By providing the infrastructure to quickly launch IAM services that increase employee productivity and secure access, it enables these organizations to not only reduce operational costs but also increase their business agility Today, WSO2 is further democratizing the ability for organizations of all sizes to implement rich, enterprise-class IAM in the cloud with the production launch of WSO2 Identity Cloud at http://wso2.com/identity-and-access-management/cloud.

The production release of WSO2 Identity Cloud incorporates functionality that addresses five months of beta customer feedback on the requirements for supporting the growing use of cloud and software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions. Like many enterprises, these customers need to control multiple employees’ access to multiple services, as well as de-provision their access when employees change roles or leave the company. WSO2 Identity Cloud enables greater efficiency in managing employees’ identities, access and data while providing
a seamless user experience that encourages adoption and fosters productivity.

WSO2 Identity Cloud improves employee productivity by reducing application access provisioning time, guaranteeing secure online interactions, delivering a single sign-on (SSO) environment, and providing a role-based application catalog for easy app discovery. Significantly, it meets all enterprise SSO requirements by leveraging key capabilities, such as:

  • A small, efficient firewall-friendly agent to connect an enterprise’s on-premises directory based on the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directly to the cloud, so employees can login to the user portal and consume the applications.
  • The ability to easily add SSO to any cloud or SaaS application using industry standards, such as the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), OpenID Connect (OIDC), and WS-Federation.
  • Preconfigured templates for popular SaaS solutions, including Amazon Web Services, Concur, GoToMeeting, Microsoft Office 365, NetSuite, Salesforce, and Zuora.
  • A brandable application catalog page with a custom URL that lets enterprise end users discover applications and access them using SSO.

“For years, WSO2 technology has been used by some of the world’s largest enterprises as a cornerstone of their IAM strategies,” said WSO2 Vice President of Cloud Dmitry Sotnikov. “With the production launch of our WSO2 Identity Cloud, we are combining our comprehensive and proven functionality with the ease and agility of instant cloud provisioning. In doing so, it represents another major milestone in our commitment to democratizing the availability of world-class identity and access management for companies and government organizations of any size.”
