TriCipher Creates Private Clouds
First Cloud-Based Identity Federation Solution for Safe Mash-Ups and Business Partnerships
LOS GATOS, Calif., Sept. 30 /- TriCipher answers the demands of the new mash-up generation of online business with secure, fast and flexible federation delivered as an on-demand service. Using myOneLogin Federation, businesses can now build secure, dynamic communities of users and partners, creating their own private clouds to deliver service mash-ups and engage customers and partners in new ways. myOneLogin Federation eliminates the uninvited user, delivering rock-solid security and fast integration, without the burden of additional hardware, software, and heaps of hard-to-remember passwords.
The new service, which launches today, gives fast-growing online communities fresh ability to expand at a moment's notice -- with secure real-time identity assurance. The key is quick access, tight controls, and extreme flexibility -- now for an unprecedented low cost of $3 per user, per month.
"In a mash-up world you may never meet the global partners that take you to new markets," said Vatsal Sonecha, vice president of business development and product management at TriCipher. "Businesses are using their networks as platforms for commerce and need to engage in new online partnerships rapidly without sacrificing control and integrity of their relationships."
Identity federation lets partnering businesses communicate securely, by extending the identity assurance measures of one company to another. The industry's first wave of federated solutions was slow to take off, because it required a complex mix of hardware, software and expensive user authentication tokens.
In contrast, myOneLogin Federation is entirely web-based, making activation immediate. Suddenly, any business can safely control when and how they connect to new partners, managing their own private clouds.
Companies are staking their businesses on collaboration -- building new products faster, and using mash-ups to quickly create new applications from existing components. Quick, easy federation is essential.
Ingres, the open-source database company, uses myOneLogin Federation to speed application development and strengthen ties across a distributed developer community. Its open-source developers use the toolkit to integrate applications freely without being tied to code, software, adaptors or templates.
"Online business needs to be managed online," said Doug Harr, CIO at Ingres. "We needed to make it easy for our large user and developer community to access the many different tools and forums available to them, and to integrate partner offerings in our online community. myOneLogin helps us do just that, with on-demand federation delivered in the cloud."
The service supports Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 1.1 and 2.0, WS-Federate and Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) and easily integrates with business directories and both proprietary and non-proprietary federation solutions.
