Cloud Communications Get Unbound

By Vinti Vaid, TMCnet Contributor

UnboundID launched a Directory Services Suite that allows organizations to supervise identities across virtualized environments. The recently VMware-certified UnboundID platform is uniquely designed to maintain large-scale virtualized infrastructures demanding secure identity management to run applications including high-volume cloud communications and subscriber-based services.

This new identity management software from UnboundID is expected to open a new era of cloud identity management. The outstanding features of UnboundID Directory Services Suite facilitating virtualized cloud communications environment include:

1.Elastic Scalability that enables organization to nurture or shrink identity management capacity on demand without making huge investments in new hardware.

2.Multi-tenancy which secures each individual customer’s data by segmenting identity information. Thereby, facilitating fin-grained security controls.

3.The ability of the software to provide highly promising directory service by exceptionally addressing all three dimensions of performance.

The various components included in UnboundID software solution suite are the UnboundID Directory Server, the UnboundID Directory Proxy Server, the UnboundID Synchronization Server and the UnboundID LDAP SDK for Java, the only updated and maintained LDAP software development kit.

At the inauguration Stephen Shoaff, co-founder and CEO of UnboundID said, “As the first to deliver identity management for high-capacity virtualized environments, we look forward to helping enterprises and cloud communications service providers realize the additional cost-saving and performance advantages that virtualized infrastructures can deliver.”

Until now, cloud service providers and enterprises were unable to deliver their offerings via a virtualized identity management environment. As the first to deliver identity management for high-capacity virtualized environments, we look forward to helping enterprises and cloud service providers realize the additional cost-saving and performance advantages that virtualized infrastructures can deliver – added Shoaff.

The identity management suite from UnboundID, provider of identity management software for Internet-driven and consumer-facing architectures is capable of processing billions of entries and transactions to serve the demands of existing multi-channel applications such as cloud-based systems, texting and smart phone applications.

UnboundID was in news last month for signing a contract under which DSMentoring will resell and implement the UnboundID identity management software suite and related services in Asia Pacific.
