CloudLock integrates RSA Via Access

March 27, 2016 - 

Cybersecurity-as-a-service solution provider CloudLock announced that through an interoperability collaboration with RSA, customers using the Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and cybersecurity platform will now have better control and security with RSA Via Access.

RSA Via Access is designed to automatically align authentication methods to an access request’s risk level by allowing administrators to prescribe identity assurance requirements and flexible step-up authentication policies based on security requirements. For instance, gaining access to an organization’s most essential assets might require biometric authentication methods, while less important assets would require a less strong level of assurance.

“Protecting our customers’ identities and securing access to their business assets is a critical first step,” said Manolo Gonzalez, Head of Alliance Partner Ecosystem at CloudLock. “We look forward to furthering our interoperability partnership with RSA to help solve the cybersecurity challenges our joint customers face at the intersection of CASB and identity.”

RSA Via Access provides identity assurance and single sign on across SaaS, Web and other applications. Through intelligent analysis of the contextual elements of the access request combined with intuitive, mobile authentication options, RSA Via Access gives end users convenient access without compromising on security.

CloudLock customers can now safely and conveniently access CloudLock’s CASB and cybersecurity platform using RSA Via Access.

“As CASB becomes increasingly critical to the modern enterprise, RSA is proud to enter into an interoperability partnership with CloudLock to help customers ensure secure and convenient access to an ever expanding range of applications both for end users and for privileged administrators,” Dave Taku, Director of Product Management for RSA.

Previously reported, in addition to TouchID fingerprint verification and tap or shake authentication, RSA Via Access now offers EyeVerify’s eye vein biometric authentication solution. Eyeprint ID uses the unique pattern of eye veins and other micro features to authenticate a user by confirming a known biometric print with a trusted device.
