Rationalizing Your Identity Infrastructure through Virtualization
You only get one first impression on the web—and that often begins with your customer’s logon process. So why is it so difficult to deliver single sign-on that covers your entire portal? Or to manage all the new demands that keep piling up, such as enabling cloud applications, integrating with partners, or extending access to mobile devices? Even though you’ve made heavy investments in WAM packages, federation tools, and policy servers, securing your web presence and delivering the best experience for your users is still a complicated and costly process. The challenge is greater than merely federating your security and access layer—you must federate your identity sources and authentication layer, as well.
Finding users and gathering attributes across today’s patchwork of identity stores is a monumental task, which is why your efforts to enable SSO and smarter authorization so often fail. If your security system isn’t supported by a unified, logically organized identity infrastructure, you can’t open your enterprise to web and cloud-based applications. You need a federated identity system based on virtualization that can deliver a global service out a disparate and distributed system of identity.
Our federated identity service delivers simple, logical, secure, and standards-based access to all the identity in your organization—no matter where or how it’s stored.
With RadiantOne, applications get the identity they need, in a view they can understand. This data drives authentication and authorization for any initiative requiring secure access to a global list of users, along with their complete identity profiles. RadiantOne enables new strategic solutions on top of your existing identity investments, speeding deployments, reducing integration costs, and providing flexibility for dynamic business requirements.
A Virtual Identity Hub with RadiantOne
RadiantOne features three products designed to solve your toughest integration challenges, combining the best of enterprise, meta, and virtual directories to deliver identity as a federated service. Acting as a centralized virtual hub between your applications and your backend identity stores, this federated identity service hides the heterogeneity of the existing identity sources, and exposes a logical, coherent, secure view of your users to both internal and external applications.
The RadiantOne federated identity service is fast, flexible, and cloud-friendly—so you can solve a world of identity challenges:
- WAM/Portal SSO: Federate authentication and authorization across heterogeneous systems to deliver SSO to your portal. By unifying distributed identities, with RadiantOne your whole enterprise identity system acts as a virtual, logical “identity provider,” simplifying authentication and providing relevant attributes in real time for smarter security and more personalized services.
- Cloud Security: Federate your identity to create a single point of access for both on-premise and cloud-based applications. By delivering identity as a complete, on-premise service, you have a local identity hub for all your applications, whether they’re enterprise, web-based, or in the cloud.
- Directory Virtualization: Create and secure a common “virtual” identity out of disparate and distributed directory infrastructures. By separating the storage from the delivery, RadiantOne enables you to consume identity information through many protocols—LDAP, SQL, SPML, and object-level web services—regardless of how or where it’s stored.
- Context-Aware Applications: Reveal the identity and context—or “actors and their actions and settings”—locked in application and data silos. By extracting and externalizing contextual identity information, RadiantOne helps you overcome data fragmentation, ensure better security and privacy, improve workflow, and enable innovative new context-driven services.
