Cloud-based DIGIPASS as a Service offering ensures secure access to OneLogin’s Single Sign-On Solution
OAKBROOK TERRACE, Illinois; ZURICH, Switzerland and San Francisco, CA – November 17, 2011 - VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI) (www.vasco.com), a leading software security company specializing in authentication products, and OneLogin, (www.onelogin.com) a cloud-based Identity and Access Management (IAM) provider, announce the integration of DIGIPASSasaService with OneLogin’s single sign-on (SSO) portal. Now customers can securely access their OneLogin account with VASCO’s strong authentication in an easy to use, convenient manner that is managed entirely in the cloud.
OneLogin offers identity and access management for enterprise Web applications. With one click, customers can access to more than 1,800 cloud applications. Now, VASCO’s cloud-based authentication service, DIGIPASS as a Service, eliminates static passwords and introduces multi-factor authentication, making access to OneLogin more secure. This reduces the risk of unauthorized access to corporate data accessible through the Internet and eliminates the hassles associated with password management.
DIGIPASS as a Service is offered as a complete outsourced authentication model, in which VASCO manages the entire authentication process. The service is completely integrated with OneLogin so enterprises don’t need to invest in an on-premise infrastructure to protect their cloud applications. The DIGIPASS as a Service offering includes a fully redundant hosted authentication back-end, the provisioning of DIGIPASS software, hardware or mobile authenticators to end-users, first line support and professional and fulfillment services. End-users can use the same DIGIPASS for multiple applications.
DIGIPASS as a Service is sold in a subscription model, on a monthly or yearly basis. The service supports as few as five users with an unlimited growth of users.
For VASCO customers that are not ready to move fully to the cloud and have already deployed IDENTIKEY, an off-the-shelf centralized authentication server that supports the deployment, use and administration of strong user authentication with DIGIPASS, OneLogin has also integrated support via the RADIUS protocol. Strong authentication available through both VASCO’s cloud-based and on-premise offerings provides a migration path to the cloud for many organizations.
“Security is the number one driver for identity and access management today,” said Thomas Pedersen, chief executive officer of OneLogin. “VASCO’s strong authentication products combined with OneLogin bring bank-level security to thousands of cloud-based applications in a turnkey solution that is instantly accessible to organizations of any size.”
“Enterprises moving into the cloud need to take the security risks into account, especially since in addition to VPN’s companies are enabling employee access to corporate data available through cloud applications. With the integration of VASCO’s cloud-based DIGIPASS as a Service offering in OneLogin, enterprises can securely access their cloud applications and focus on their core business instead of security issues”, said Jan Valcke, COO and President of VASCO Data Security.
OneLogin provides the fastest path to IAM in the cloud with an on-demand solution consisting of single sign-on, password management, multi-factor authentication, directory integration, user provisioning and an application catalog with over 1,800 pre-integrated applications, including AtTask, Box.net, Cornerstone OnDemand, DocuSign, Google Apps, LotusLive, Netsuite, SugarCRM, WebEx Workday, Yammer and Zendesk. OneLogin, Inc. is backed by Charles River Ventures. Free Trial Available at:www.onelogin.com | Twitter: @onelogin.
