Build an On-Premise Identity Hub
The Solution: A Federated Identity Service On-Premise
To federate securely and reach all of your—and your partner’s—identities, you need one identity hub to achieve a federated identity. The important question is where to host it. If you’re starting from scratch with a greenfield deployment, it makes sense for identity to be hosted in the cloud, but that’s not the case for modern enterprises with extensive investments in on-premise repositories.
The Challenge: Logon and Synchronization with Cloud Apps
The cloud integration challenge goes beyond just authentication. Dealing with many identity sources and many applications leads to chaos—especially when it means crossing the firewall each time a user is authenticated, or information is synched.
If you’re like most larger enterprises, you already have a complex infrastructure with identities spread across many heterogeneous sources—multiple AD domains and forests, other directories, databases, web services—along with a multitude of legacy applications that rely on those sources. A move to cloud-based identity would be extremely disruptive, while the use of ADFS would cover only one of the many identity repositories you grapple with every day.
The Solution: A Federated Identity Service For the Cloud-Not In the Cloud
The solution to untangle this web is to federate identities, creating an on-premise virtual identity hub to give your SaaS applications a single point of access for authentication and authorization. This minimizes the number of necessary connections, the need for synchronization, and in many cases, cancels the need to maintain additional identity stores to fit the requirements of new apps.
With RadiantOne virtualization, you don’t have to uproot your existing infrastructure. RadiantOne delivers an on-premise identity service that allows your identity to evolve easily with changing requirements, whether that means adding new data sources or applications, expanding your user populations after a merger or acquisition, or extending your identity securely to get all the benefits of the cloud.
