As the transition to remote working has forced many companies’ hands for increased or faster adoption of cloud services, One Identity has announced the availability of its new software-as-a-service (SaaS) identity governance and administration (IGA) and privileged access management (PAM) solutions. Based on the One Identity Security Platform and designed with the full IGA and PAM capabilities of its industry-leading solutions, the new SaaS offerings allow organisations to implement a Zero Trust model and are hosted, managed, monitored and operated by One Identity within the One Identity Cloud.
According to the company, with One Identity Safeguard On Demand, companies don’t have to sacrifice security or capabilities as they seek to manage and secure privileged accounts and administrator access for human, application or machine identities, cloud-based privileged accounts, and any and all target systems. One Identity’s Identity Manger On Demand and One Identity Safeguard On Demand afford businesses an efficient and secure cloud-based way to store, record, authenticate, analyse and manage privileged accounts through password and session management, the solution reduces the stress and worry of privileged access. With Safeguard On Demand organizations can secure and enable appropriate access to privileged accounts thus protecting themselves from threats while satisfying security and compliance requirements.
“As organisations continue to move to cloud-first strategies, they cannot afford to sacrifice capability, functionality or scope in their IGA and PAM programmes,” said Bhagwat Swaroop president and general manager of One Identity. “With the introduction of One Identity Manager On Demand and One Identity Safeguard On Demand, organisations can achieve their full IGA and PAM objectives in the cloud without compromise. These new solutions allow organisations to seamlessly implement a Zero Trust model the way they need it including cloud-delivery.”
Martin Kuppinger, founder and principal analyst of KuppingerCole Analysts AG, said of the new offerings: “Customers expect IAM solutions to support different deployment models, without giving up functionality. APIs to access the IAM services are essential for rapidly delivering new digital solutions in the Digital Transformation journey of organisations. With its new offerings, One Identity leverages mature IAM and PAM capabilities to deliver these as a service, and to add a comprehensive API-layer, simplifying customisation, orchestration, and the delivery of new digital services.”
The company also said that with One Identity Manager On Demand, IGA is driven by business needs, not IT capabilities. Through an automation-optimised architecture, it addresses the key identity and access governance challenges organisations face. By aggregating the identities from a variety of different sources, Identity Manager On Demand delivers the scalability enterprises need to manage their employees and external users — through the entire lifecycle and with all the visibility and control IGA demands.
