HID Launches New Cloud Identity & Access Management Platform
The multi-tenant Cloud authentication service offers large scale on-boarding of users and frictionless authentication for identity and access management customers.
AUSTIN, Texas — HID Global announces the availability of the new HID Authentication Service, part of its Cloud identity platform, designed to deliver a suite of trusted identity solutions.
The company says these services make it easy to manage and use identities through a secure Cloud delivery model.
This multi-tenant Cloud authentication service offers large scale, simplified on-boarding of users and frictionless authentication for identity and access management (IAM) customers spanning a variety of industries, according to the company.
The HID Authentication Service is said to remove the complexity of adhering to local regulations and the related challenges of providing multifactor authentication to a growing and diverse population of users.
The IAM Cloud solution will continue to build in new services that allow organizations to leverage their existing technology to accomplish new identity goals. It also provides centralized audit logs to simplify compliance capabilities and reduce the burden of audits.
“HID Global continues its move toward Cloud solutions with the addition of new IAM services, expanding the offering with a unifying technology platform for our millions of users,” says Brad Jarvis, vice president & managing director of identity & access management solutions (IAMS) with HID Global. “HID is among the only IAM solution providers that can offer authentication for high security use cases all the way down to basic enterprise multifactor authentication. With this breadth of solutions, we believe that organizations in regulated markets, in particular, will gain the most significant benefits from the HID Authentication Service.”
Users gain the benefits of the flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness of a Cloud-based services IAM platform. In financial services, for example, access to high-value transactions can be protected by integrating API calls to the HID Authentication Service from third-party software, such as the Temenos T24 core banking platform. In healthcare, a partner can build patient access to healthcare portals to be HIPAA-compliant.
HID is making APIs available to developers, partners and managed security service providers (MSSPs) to offer scalable, built-in authentication services.
As a trusted partner, HID will provide toolkits to system integrators and IT programmers to support the rollout. At the same time, HID will continue to sell and support on-premise IAM solutions.
An ideal platform for handling a large-scale rollout, testing, provisioning and delivery of authentication services to protect networks and applications, HID says the new Cloud solution is purpose-built for IT teams to manage identities in mixed environments.
