Identity as a Service (IDaaS) and Federated Identity
Using the power of virtualization, RadiantOne federated identity and directory service integrates both on-premises and cloud identity stores, creating a unified identity hub for traditional WAM and IDaaS.
Most of the challenges facing today’s Identity and Access Management (IAM) professionals involve making older technologies work with newer ones, without compromising security or speed. In this webinar, you’ll learn how RadiantOne FID, our federated identity and directory service, uses advanced virtualization to integrate both on-premises and cloud identity stores, creating a unified identity hub for traditional WAM and Identity as a Service (IDaaS).
The adoption of IDaaS enables enterprises to provide user-friendly access and secure SSO to multiple SaaS/Cloud applications, along with location-independent identity directory storage on the cloud. Yet those benefits are available only to applications that can either leverage federation standards (such as SAML and OpenID Connect) and/or the specific API supported by the IDaaS vendor (such as Okta or Azure). Unfortunately, most enterprise LDAP-based applications and traditional WAM portals can’t do either.
The solution is to create an integrated image of cloud identities, virtualized by RadiantOne into an on-premises identity hub that can be consumed by LDAP and legacy web applications. This enables legacy applications to see the new cloud identity sources as an extension of their user base—extending the scope of these non standards-based applications to cloud constituencies.
Another common scenario goes the other way—when users stored on prem need access to cloud applications. In this case, the integration is done on premises and the image is then synchronized to cloud directories so that they are always up to date. This extends the scope of cloud applications to on-prem constituencies.
RadiantOne allows your infrastructure to evolve easily, whether you’re adding new data sources or applications, expanding user populations after a merger or acquisition, or extending identity securely to take advantage of the cloud.
