RSA adds new application to strengthen security in hybrid IT environments

The new applications ensure security across enterprise cloud and mobile infrastructures

By CBR Staff Writer

RSA, The Security Division of EMC, has introduced new applications to its Identity and Access Management ("IAM") suite, which claimed to unify identity and access management in hybrid IT environments, whether on-premise, mobile and cloud.

The new application claimed to ensure consistent security across enterprise, cloud and mobile infrastructures helping enterprises manage and protect the growing number of users and device identities.

The new IAM applications will enable enterprises to extend identity information and access extensively to partners, consumers and cloud applications with risk-driven controls.

With the new applications, organisations can now create a dynamic perimeter around online user sessions that leverage contextual information to calculate risk and enforces adaptive authentication according to enterprise policy.

The new IAM applications will correlate and aggregate identity information and securely expose it to cloud applications and partners. They also reduces time taken to establish identity federation with cloud applications by using an identity and access broker.

RSA Access Manager will help organisations to provide secure access to web applications through web single sign-on (Web SSO), consolidate access controls for enhanced security, benefit from an improved user experience and accelerate application deployment.

It also supports authentication methods, including tight integration with RSA Adaptive Authentication for phone and the new support for email risk-based authentication.

RSA Adaptive Directory is designed to correlate and aggregate identity information across variety of enterprise sources and delivers a global view of identity using identity virtualization layer.

The Adaptive Federation is designed to provide secure identity federation as a service to assure that the right users have the right access at the right time, to business-critical resources and sensitive data in SaaS applications.

It is powered by VMware Horizon Application Manager and enables secure access to and from the cloud while reducing deployment and operating expenses associated with products hosted and maintained internally by organisations.

RSA Adaptive Federation interoperates with Microsoft Windows operating systems and RSA SecurID authentication already deployed at organisations.
