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 [email protected] can sign in at the SinglePoint portal, and automatically be authenticated to Google Apps without having to use his [email protected] 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/.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
