Atos and Identity Automation launch IAM tools for secure access to work and education applications
Atos has launched a new cloud subscription service for passwordless secure access to the full range of business applications with multifactor authentication options including biometrics, FIDO2, mobile push, PKI and other methods. The company says Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) technologies are the cornerstone of Zero Trust strategies for organizations.
The new Evidian IDaaS provides secure access to online applications for employees, partners and customers, using SSO based on identity federation and multifactor authentication. Atos claims in the announcement it is secure, flexible, and scalable, built on Google Cloud Platform, and can help organizations comply with regulations like PSD2, HIPAA, and GDPR.
“Recent paradigm shifts, which include identities being the number one attack vector, place IAM at the heart of cybersecurity strategies. With our new IDaaS solution, we give our clients the power to manage their IT environment from a single pane of glass, facilitating day-to-day management and increasing overall security,” says Atos Head of Identity & Access Management Sébastien Brachet.
Atos is a member of the Identity Defined Security Alliance.
Identity Automation launches education IAM tool
Identity Automation has launched a new module, Studio, with enhanced capabilities to Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) rostering data for K-12 education to give students access to virtual classroom resources right away, rather than after weeks of work.
The company’s RapidIdentity Rostering platform automates the integration and synchronization of student roster data with target applications, an otherwise time-consuming process, according to the company. Schools can select from a catalogue of applications with pre-defined integrations, or custom file formats for applications that do not use industry standards.
In addition to the K-12 education market, Studio’s capabilities can also provide value in other verticals with data transformation needs.
“As more and more K-12 districts move to the cloud and online learning, the refactoring of RapidIdentity Rostering empowers curriculum departments with a critical link between the classroom and learning applications, effortlessly syncing class roster data in a way that optimizes collaboration and the learning experience,” comments Michael Webb, CTO at Identity Automation.
Identity Automation acquired account management and SSO provider Enboard in March, increasing its footprint in the education market.
