BOULDER, Colo.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Symplified®, the Cloud security company, today announced Symplified for Taleo, a complete identity and access management (IAM) solution for the industry’s leading on-demand talent management platform. Symplified provides personalized portals for Taleo that enforce access control policies, enable Single Sign-On (SSO) and audit usage for compliance reporting.
“Symplified creates a central portal that delivers single sign-on, enforces security and access control policies, and audits usage of Taleo applications. By integrating with on-premises resources like Active Directory across firewalls, we can extend network logins to the cloud without the need to install any desktop software.”
Taleo’s (NASDAQ: TLEO) cloud-based talent management platform unites products and an ecosystem to drive business performance through talent intelligence. Nearly 4,700 customers use Taleo for talent acquisition, performance and compensation management, including 48 of the Fortune 100. Symplified is the first and only available solution for Taleo that brings together the entire IAM stack in a modular design that provides user provisioning, authentication, strong authentication, authorization, federated SSO, auditing and compliance reporting.
“Taleo’s talent management platform contains very confidential information about employee performance and compensation, which must remain secure and on a need-to-know basis,” said Eric Olden CEO of Symplified. “Symplified creates a central portal that delivers single sign-on, enforces security and access control policies, and audits usage of Taleo applications. By integrating with on-premises resources like Active Directory across firewalls, we can extend network logins to the cloud without the need to install any desktop software.”
One Portal for All Cloud and Enterprise Apps
To streamline systems administration and end-user convenience for cloud-based Taleo applications, Symplified provides a portal that handles SSO, provisioning, authentication, authorization, and auditing. With a single login at the portal, or no login with the Windows Kerberos desktop extension option, users are automatically given granular access to all the Taleo resources and data for which they have been granted authorization. Symplified, which supports SSO using SAML and HTTP-FED, provides SSO for Taleo using HTTP-FED, since this platform is not currently SAML compliant.
In addition to centralizing IAM for the Taleo platform, Symplified enables organizations to integrate other cloud and enterprise applications like SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft, Google, ADP and others, in a single portal. This capability eliminates security management silos for IT and provides a simple SSO experience for end-users. Finally, since it uses a unique proxy architecture that filters cloud services traffic, Symplified provides a consolidated view of activity across Taleo and other applications accessed through the portal. This central point of audit makes it easy to demonstrate compliance with regulatory mandates.
