Today, Intel announced (http://intel.ly/LDRT7W) the general availability of Intel Cloud SSO.
Intel Cloud SSO is a pure cloud-based identity solution from three of the most trusted names in the industry— Intel, McAfee and Salesforce.com— that simplifies the cumbersome process of providing users with access to hundreds of SaaS apps.
Organizations currently using cloud applications know there are two sides to the coin – one being an improvement in operational efficiency, the other an introduction to a model of IT involving an extended network beyond the firewall with an entirely new method of accessing resources. Everyone sees value in the added efficiency of cloud apps, but no one loves remembering new login credentials and extending authentication past the firewall.
The recently announced Intel solution solves the woes of authentication for hundreds of cloud apps including Salesforce.com and others – Intel Cloud SSO (Single Sign-On). This identity-as-a-service solution enables secure single sign-on with strong authentication to cloud applications, featuring automated user provisioning and a centralized point of management for access control. Intel Cloud SSO is the first identity-as-a-service solution certified as having enterprise-class security controls by the Cloud Security Alliance’s STAR (Security Trust and Assurance Registry) initiative.
Learn more about this solution in a deep-dive webinar on 5/24, 1pm ET where you can take a first look at Intel Cloud SSO.
