Case Study: Consumer Goods Manufacturer
Modernizing Infrastructure to Prepare for a “Cloud-First” Future
Using RadiantOne FID to Migrate Away from Aging Assets, Save Money, and Streamline Security
For one consumer goods manufacturer, an aging identity infrastructure was holding back efforts to evolve to more modern architectures. With internal identities secured via a now-unsupported Critical Path metadirectory, as well as a variety of aging directories and databases, the company needed a new path forward—one that would be SHA-2 compliant and position the company to strengthen its existing security while preparing for a move to the cloud. The identity team recognized the need to migrate to a modern directory infrastructure flexible enough to meet the authentication and authorization needs of applications today and in the cloud-based future. After an extensive POC, the company proved that a federated identity service with RadiantOne FID would support the existing identity structure of groups and individuals, reducing the complexity of transitioning from Critical Path while supporting its investments with Sailpoint, CA SSO/SiteMinder, Microsoft AD, and Ping—and enabling cloud-driven future investments.
