Federated Access & Identity with CA SSO (formerly CA SiteMinder) and RadiantOne
How to use your current SSO solution in the world of fast evolving user populations
The world of access and identity is expanding, and with expansion come both challenges and major opportunities for you to leverage your current CA SiteMinder deployment.
On the access side, you are no longer looking at just applications on premises, but also partner applications, SaaS applications, etc.—not to mention reaching beyond the conventional desktop infrastructure to the mobile device world. So the support of federation standards is quickly becoming a key enterprise imperative. At the same time, your current CA SiteMinder deployment remains essential for your existing enterprise applications and applications that don’t support federation standards.
On the identity side, the demand to integrate new or additional constituencies is perpetual. The user populations you need to support are increasing beyond employees to include customers, business partners and newly-merged constituencies. This further complicates your identity layer because these identities are stored in a mix of scattered databases, directories and web services. You also need to deliver dynamic group attributes that enforce and extend authorization policies in your current CA SiteMinder deployment.
The latticework of connections and data dependencies between your CA SiteMinder applications and data stores becomes a major hindrance to evolution, a threat to system-wide security, and an obstruction for your business initiatives.
Leverage the federation pattern for both access and identity with CA SiteMinder and RadiantOne.
Learn how to:
- Leverage the federation pattern across the access layer and the identity layer.
- Evolve without disrupting your existing identity environment. You will never have to modify underlying sources, or extend their schemas to accommodate CA SiteMinder requirements – all of the heavy lifting is done seamlessly in the integration layer.
- Use a common identity hub to:
- Serve both your current classic on premise and federation infrastructure.
- Enhance policy flexibility with access to more attributes for authorization.
- Speed up performance dramatically.
