NOVATO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Radiant Logic, pioneering provider of the federated identity service based on virtualization, has long offered users of IBM® Security Access Manager—or “ISAM”—tight integration between its RadiantOne Federated Identity Service (FID) and the various iterations of ISAM. IBM is now offering version 9 of its flagship identity and access management product and RadiantOne FID is once again certified to work seamlessly with the solution. According to IBM, ISAM is “…an integrated appliance for web, mobile and cloud…enabling businesses to more securely adopt web, mobile, and cloud technologies and simplify user access management for employees and consumers.”* RadiantOne helps companies make the most of this upgraded solution.
RadiantOne Integrates All Sources of Identity, Accelerating the Potential of ISAM v9
With RadiantOne FID, it’s easier for large established organizations with heterogeneous identity infrastructures—including LDAP, AD, SQL, and APIs—to take advantage of the features and functionality of ISAM. By rationalizing identity and attributes from diverse, distributed backends into a logical identity hub, RadiantOne provides a global, “normalized” list of users where every user is represented once for faster authentication, as well as global profiles for each user containing every available attribute for smarter authorization. Virtualization shields an ISAM portal from the complexity of disparate identity sources and possible changes in data structure. By federating identity from across the disparate back ends into a single logical access point (FID), enterprises can fully leverage existing identity stores for SSO and fine-grained authorization.
According to Michel Prompt, co-founder and CEO of Radiant Logic: “The world of identity and access management is changing, as services start to move into the cloud and desktops are complemented by mobile devices. Yet every sizable enterprise also has a massive investment in its existing systems, with their Web Access Management system at the center of their enterprise security strategy. It’s essential that today’s existing portals stay current, while extending secure and scalable access to an array of new users, including partners and customers. That’s where RadiantOne FID comes in. RadiantOne rationalizes identity and attributes from across diverse, distributed data stores, acting as a unified layer between legacy backends and consuming applications, whether they’re part of your portal or based in the cloud.”
Continuing the Close Integration Between RadiantOne and IBM Security Access Manager
Whether companies are looking to secure cloud applications accessed on mobile devices, or integrate new user populations such as customers, business partners, and newly- merged constituencies, RadiantOne can smooth the way. Acting as a unique directory interface and storage between ISAM and the myriad of internal identity and authentication sources and protocols, RadiantOne Federated Identity Service delivers a “virtualized view” of identity for SSO, as well as the attributes required for fine-grained authorization.
“Think of RadiantOne as a Swiss Army Knife for identity, the handiest integration tool in your toolbox. Our federated identity service future-proofs your ISAM portal, making it easier to evolve without disrupting your existing identity environment or extend access to new user populations,” said Dieter Schuller, vice president of business development at Radiant Logic. “All of the heavy lifting is done seamlessly in the secure integration layer. RadiantOne enables Fortune 5000 companies and other large organizations to extend authentication across web or cloud applications, enable SSO and smart authorization, increase security, speed and more personalized services.”
