One Identity has finally integrated One Login’s technology with the rest of its identity and access management portfolio. One Identity acquired One Login in October of last year in an effort to bolster its authentication and Single Sign-On capabilities.
Now One Identity has gone ahead and pushed a slew of updates for its own Unified Identity Security Platform. The Safeguard Software-as-a-Service component now offers smoother onboarding and passwordless auto-login capabilities thanks to the addition of the new Safeguard Alchemy feature, which is part of One Identity’s broader Starling platform.
The upgrades also enable multi-factor authentication at the device and desktop level, and give administrators more insight into their access management setup. In that regard, One Identity is trying to provide comprehensive security coverage for an increasingly remote and distributed workforce, so that employees can gain safe access to sensitive materials through the cloud.
On that front, One Identity believes that the improved Security Platform can accelerate scaling and digital transformation. The One Identity Manager allows administrators to take care of all of their identity operations through a centralized dashboard, from account creation through to termination. The Manager also lets those administrators set different time and access privileges for people at different tiers within an organization.
“The acquisition of OneLogin last year was a critical step for us to be able to deliver a complete and unified security strategy to our customers,” said One Identity President and GM Bhagwat Swaroop. “Traditional identity and access management tools manage environments in a disjointed manner, leading to identity sprawl — a fragmented and inefficient approach to identity security. One Identity is transforming the way its customers are able to manage and protect access with a now complete suite of identity security solutions that help simplify access management, reduce IT costs, improve security, and enhance user experience.”
According to One Identity, the upgrades will improve the quality of the data captured through the Security Platform. The solution is intended to help organizations achieve a Zero Trust security posture. One Identity acquired Balabit and secured a UK distributor back in 2018.
