NOVATO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Radiant Logic, the leading provider of the federated identity and directory service, today announced the 7.3 release of its RadiantOne Federated Identity and Directory Service (FID). With its Universal Cloud Identity Connector (UCIC), version 7.3 enables major enterprises to transition to cloud-based infrastructure, while still serving legacy applications on-premises. The new release also includes major improvements to RadiantOne’s storage and refresh capabilities, further enabling it to serve the largest identity deployments in the world, plus updates for more fine-tuned administration.
“More and more businesses are living with one foot on the dock and one on the boat, as hybrid environments become the norm,” says Radiant Logic CEO, Michel Prompt. “This release is specifically designed to help large enterprises to maintain their investments while moving their business forward toward a modern, cloud-based infrastructure.”
Universal Cloud Identity Connector Improves Support for Identity Access and Provisioning
RadiantOne 7.3 includes enhancements to make authentication and authorization in hybrid environments more secure and more efficient, while preparing the way for an easy migration to the cloud.
“User directories and other repository services continue to be an important part of IAM. Most organizations have an existing on-premises user directory,” says Gartner VP analyst Mary Ruddy in the December 14, 2018 research report Plan Your IAM Architecture for ContinuousNEXT. “There are a number of use cases for adding another (usually cloud-based) user directory … Most cloud-based services require synchronization of user identity data. This can lead to identity sprawl (i.e., multiple copies of the same identity data), which makes it more challenging to keep identity data changes synchronized.”
RadiantOne 7.3 debuts the Universal Cloud Identity Connector (UCIC), making it easier to map identities to cloud targets. This externalized service is an abstraction layer based on SCIM 2.0 protocol. It features pre-defined mapping templates for cloud app targets, including Azure AD, Salesforce, Google Directory, Okta, Workday, and many others. Offered as a cloud service, this represents an important tool for enterprises looking to roll out a hybrid environment, and synchronize data across disparate on-premise and cloud-based sources.
Improved Configuration Supports Finer-Grained Security and Management
RadiantOne 7.3 boosts FID’s already strong performance by improving the persistent cache refresh feature of HDAP, implementing an agent-based approach that can detect delta on the backend and refresh the cache accordingly. Version 7.3 also features major usability improvements in configuration and administration across the RadiantOne suite, including the ability to temporarily lock configuration changes to ensure security, or require approval for synchronization events. With these updates, plus new email alerts to admins when changes have been made, RadiantOne enables even finer-grained security over identity orchestration.
“7.3 is a transition version but an important one,” says Claude Samuelson, CTO and VP of Engineering at Radiant Logic. “We have streamlined our connectors and improved different layers of our synchronization architecture to facilitate a deployment on the cloud, specifically AWS and Azure.”
Radiant Logic will be hosting a webinar on Thursday, June 6 at 11am PDT, previewing the features of Version 7.3. Registration is open on the Radiant Logic website.
Test Drive the Product at Sailpoint Navigate Conference
Join Radiant Logic at the Sailpoint Navigate conference, June 10-12 in Austin, TX, to learn how implementing RadiantOne FID can help you to get even more value out of your identity governance solution. RadiantOne can be used to “pre-integrate” identity data from diverse sources, and it can also use the IGA database as a source of identity information itself, for use in LDAP, WAM and Federation. RadiantOne makes dynamic business needs—including provisioning, the move to the cloud, and IGA—more cost effective, simpler, and faster through identity and directory integration.
Radiant Logic VP of Business Development Dieter Schuller will also participate in a panel discussion on the “Future of Identity” with BeyondTrust, Ping, and AWS. Attend this interactive executive panel session to gain insights on best practices and what lies ahead for best-of-breed IAM. The panel will take place on June 12 at 3:30pm.
