NOVATO, Calif.--()--Join the Radiant Logic federated identity team at the upcoming RSA trade show at the Moscone Center in San Francisco on February 13-17, 2017. Come learn more about the latest features of RadiantOne, the company’s innovative federated identity platform based on advanced virtualization, featuring essential capabilities such as sophisticated correlation, real-time synchronization, and Big Data-volume scalability. Large-scale enterprises rely on RadiantOne for a variety of mission-critical use cases, from SSO and ABAC to directory migration and cloud provisioning.

“This accelerated migration of server apps to the cloud is having a seismic effect on the IAM market. After all, securing these hosted applications remain paramount, adding many new challenges that the broader IAM market has not been well-equipped to answer—until now”

The Great Migration: From Data Centers to the Cloud

As many companies migrate their server applications to cloud infrastructures such as Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS), the trend also impacts the identity and access management (IAM) market. Such applications will still need to be secured, which means the individuals who need access to these apps must also be linked back to the data center or migrated to that new hosted environment. This is no simple task, given the fragmentation and distribution of most enterprise identity infrastructures. Identities and profiles are distributed across a diverse array of sources, including Active Directory domains and forests, LDAP directories, SQL databases, and/or wrapped in specialized APIs.

“This accelerated migration of server apps to the cloud is having a seismic effect on the IAM market. After all, securing these hosted applications remain paramount, adding many new challenges that the broader IAM market has not been well-equipped to answer—until now,” said Radiant Logic Co-Founder and CEO Michel Prompt. “Such a move requires both a federation or smart centralization of identity sources, as well as some form of synchronization and provisioning to either link those identities to their targeted cloud apps or to move those identities to Azure AD or AWS. Our flagship RadiantOne Federated Identity Service (FID) based on virtualization empowers large companies to securely federate, move, and synchronize identity from data center to the cloud in a variety of target directories.”

To secure these hosted applications, companies need to create a normalized view of their identity to identify and authorize each user no matter where—or how—they’re stored. This type of unified image drives security, federation, and provisioning in today’s cloud-driven environments. With its virtualization and synchronization capabilities, RadiantOne federated identity service allows companies to integrate identities, creating a reference image to secure, populate, and provision cloud directories.

Linking vs. Migrating: Scaling Up as Needed

While many companies recognize the need to migrate applications to cloud directories, securing those applications can be time consuming and expensive, given today’s brittle identity infrastructures. With RadiantOne, companies build a federated identity hub with a global list of users where every user is represented only once, as well as global profiles for every user. Such a system respects the autonomy of every authoritative store, keeping the hub in sync with any changes on the backend.

As enterprises begin to migrate server applications to cloud directories, they can secure those applications in two ways. First, by linking and syncing a federated version of their in-house identity stores. Or by doing a one-time migration of both the target directory and consuming applications, so the identity infrastructure resides on the selected cloud directory. Radiant Logic’s latest release of its flagship RadiantOne FID version 7.2 delivers an identity service that enables companies to manage security for cloud-based applications using either method.

Fast ROI for Employee Identities: Hosting and Syncing AD on the Cloud

The move to the cloud, along with new access demands imposed by mobility, is placing increasing stress on today’s identity data infrastructures—and this lack of flexibility is slowing IT’s ability to support the business, reducing productivity as costs rise. Large organizations have an immediate need to enable employee populations to quickly and securely access cloud and SaaS applications. These identities and attributes are stored across an ever-growing number of Active Directory domains and forests, leaving many companies with unwieldy identity “thickets” that are difficult to maintain and grow.

“Hosting and syncing your identity to a cloud platform such as Azure AD or Amazon Web Services is the new imperative. But most of today’s solutions only focus on federating the access layer, not on federating, syncing, and provisioning the underlying identity layer,” said Claude Samuelson, Co-Founder and CTO of Radiant Logic. “RadiantOne FID dives deep into the security infrastructure, delivering a common, rationalized, and authoritative view of identity that’s in charge of identification and profile attributes. Drawn from across diverse data stores including AD, LDAP, SQL, and APIs, this curated global view of identity is essential for hosting and syncing identity on Azure AD or Amazon Web Services.”
