Secure Cloudlink intros identity and access management solution

British cloud security software firm Secure Cloudlink Ltd. has introduced a new, patented cloud services brokerage (CSB) solution providing secure identity management and cloud services distribution to eliminate the need for passwords.

The new solution supports three factor, SSO (single sign on) and biometric user authentication. However, unlike other solutions in the market, Secure Cloudlink’s solution does not store, send or replicate any user credentials outside of an organization’s directory service.

Secure Cloudlink’s solution serves as a secure, centralized user authentication and application to manage all users access rights to all authorized applications without having to create and manage internal domains.

Designed with security in mind, the cloud services brokerage platform overcomes identity security issues associated with passwords by including a unique and patented token passing technology.

The authentication method does not require user credentials to be stored separately or outside of the directory service, which significantly lowers the risk of a cyber breach and costs associated with password reminders.

“Although some organisations are investing in technology to automate password resets to reduce the number of calls user credentials still persist exposing the organization to the threat of cyber attack.” said Brian Keats, CEO of Secure Cloudlink Ltd. “At SCL our approach is to eliminate the passwords and streamline the granting of access to applications, IT resources and online services.”

The platform is the only one that anonymizes user identities over the web for secure access to cloud services, ensuring that it will never access or store user security credentials when connecting internal users, customers and suppliers to web-based applications.

The use of federated security authentication also ensures that network users will have seamless and secure access to multiple cloud services without even appearing to have left the corporate network.

The platform’s secure single-sign-on reduces IT service desk time managing many passwords by deploying users with a single, secure access point for access to their applications via their desktop, tablet or mobile.

Users can be granted access both at single and group level, and with a bulk upload facility, providing an environment that allows centralized management access to employees, contractors, suppliers and customers without creating new domains and user accounts in an existing directory.

Secure Cloudlink said it has already sold the solution to several customers across a diverse range of markets including government, SaaS providers, and financial institutions.
