LOS GATOS, Calif., July 29 /PRNewswire/ — Ingres Corporation, a leading provider of open source database management software and support services, has selected TriCipher's myOneLogin to deliver single sign-on (SSO) security and convenience to its thousands of worldwide users. myOneLogin's delivery as a service enables Ingres customers to seamlessly log into all of Ingres' open source corporate and community Web sites with a single username and password from any location.
"SaaS SSO meets our needs as an open source database company — which is to reduce the complexity for customers and prospects to access applications while improving their overall experience," said Doug Harr, CIO for Ingres Corporation. "SaaS solutions have similar benefits to open source solutions in that they are highly leveraged and available by subscription so more people can benefit and ultimately experience a lower TCO and faster time to innovate. We are pleased with our selection of TriCipher's myOneLogin and expect our customers to see an enhanced ease-of-use experience when visiting the Ingres Web sites."
Ingres chose myOneLogin from an evaluation of several Identity as a Service (IaaS) providers for its:
— Delivery as a service, minimizing infrastructure costs. — Easy-to-implement single sign-on capability, helping speed ROI and streamline customer logins. — Ability to integrate with new applications in a matter of hours – not weeks. — Flexibility with federation standards for identity management like SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) and OpenID. — Web application security, putting a stronghold on internet and extranet applications and services at Ingres. — Clear product roadmap, outlining the future of the solution as technology evolves.
"Web applications are a double-edged sword, making customers' jobs easier while also moving data further away from enterprises and increasing organizations' risk," said John De Santis, CEO of TriCipher. "myOneLogin decreases that risk by centralizing and strengthening the sign-on process to all Web applications."
Securing "The Cloud"
myOneLogin delivers a single, secure on-demand gateway for dozens of Web-based applications, implementing controls where employees would otherwise bypass corporate data identity and compliance controls. The technology supports all existing governance standards and is the only strong authentication SSO solution delivered as a service. This unique architecture:
— Eliminates the time and costs to install authentication hardware and software. — Gives users access to all Web applications from any location and any computer. — Protects access to confidential data wherever it resides.
"Identity and access management as a service (IAM as a service) will support SaaS adoption by addressing some security and compliance concerns for organizational data residing external to the enterprise and strong protective measures when operating in the cloud," said Earl Perkins, research vice president at Gartner Inc. "The development and traction of these services in the market begins with authentication services, including single sign-on, and will evolve over time."
myOneLogin offers scalable levels of protection and works with any Web-based application that uses SAML, OpenID or a standard username and password. The technology helps businesses automatically provision and de-provision online applications users — saving money on unused applications and protecting companies from unauthorized application access. TriCipher technology is deployed across several core verticals including electronic payment networks, financial services, healthcare and technology.
TriCipher, Inc. provides a unified authentication infrastructure to protect web and enterprise portals, the people that use them and the business process that flows through them against fraud and identity theft. The TriCipher Armored Credential System(TM) (TACS) is the first authentication system that enables companies to deploy and manage multiple types of credentials from a single infrastructure. Through this flexible "Authentication Ladder," TriCipher protects customer investment by adjusting authentication strength to defeat new threats and to meet regulatory changes without the need to implement a new infrastructure. Recently, TriCipher introduced myOneLogin(TM) the first secure on-demand offering that delivers strong authentication, single sign-on (SSO) convenience and the ability to seamlessly integrate multiple Software as a Service (SaaS) applications in a single solution.
