Symplified Demonstrates Access Control and Single Sign-On for Leading Cloud Applications at Catalyst Conference

Symplified, the cloud security company, today announced that it will demonstrate here how its SinglePoint™ Cloud Identity and Access Management solution provides centralized, granular access control, single sign-on (SSO), and auditing for leading cloud applications, identity providers, and federation protocols by integrating with user data and directories located inside enterprise firewalls. As part of the cloud SSO Interoperability demonstration hosted by Burton Group, Symplified will showcase how SinglePoint addresses policy enforcement, regulatory compliance, and directory integration challenges associated with deploying Google Apps, Salesforce.com, Microsoft’s new identity federation platform, and other on-demand resources.

“The mainstream deployment of cloud applications, especially among large and medium sized enterprises, is creating the need for centralized access management including federated single sign-on,” said Gerry Gebel, VP & Service Director at Burton Group. “This Interoperability demonstration will showcase how enterprises can use federation standards and technologies to secure cloud applications and enforce access control and authorization policies.”

SinglePoint – Singular Control over the Cloud

SinglePoint natively integrates more than 30 cloud applications with on-premise identity infrastructures including LDAP, Microsoft Active Directory, databases, and portals. SinglePoint provides a full complement of access management capabilities that meet the requirements for regulated environments including the financial services, pharmaceutical, and high technology industries. These include:

  • Policy-based granular controls that use the XACML standard to restrict which users can access individual resources and data for regulatory compliance
  • Maintaining a detailed audit trail of which users access specific resources and data for maintaining security standards across the cloud
  • The ability to enforce Chinese wall security policies for access to applications and data across organizational units for compliance
  • Using Active Directory to extend group- and role-based policies from inside the firewall to cloud applications
  • A revolutionary federated SSO capability that uses HTTP federation and doesn’t require a service provider (SP) to modify their application or implement heavy federation software in order to provide SSO to cloud applications
  • Federated SSO that supports SAML 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0
  • Persona mapping of identity that reconciles different usernames required to access internal enterprise resources and cloud applications. For example, user ezee@symplified.com can sign in at the SinglePoint portal, and automatically be authenticated to Google Apps without having to use his veryezee@gmail.com alias.

“Larger enterprises, especially in regulated environments, need to implement access and audit controls over cloud-based applications that go far beyond single sign-on and authentication,” said Darren Platt, CTO of Symplified. “Without robust, enterprise-class security in place many organizations cannot confidently deploy cloud applications. Our interoperability demonstration at the Catalyst Conference will illustrate how enterprises can use SinglePoint to centrally implement 360 degree access management, including single sign-on, access control, authorization, and usage auditing, that is integrated with leading applications from Google, Salesforce.com, Microsoft, and others.”

The Interoperability demonstration will take place Wednesday evening, July 29th at The Burton Group Catalyst Conference which runs July 27-31 in San Diego California. For more details, visit http://www.catalyst.burtongroup.com/NA09/.

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
