Radiant Logic Announces CFS 3.0, an On-Premises IdP Supporting Multi-Tenancy
HOUSTON --(Business Wire)--
Radiant Logic, market-leading provider of a federated identity and
context service based on virtualization, today announces at Microsoft (News - Alert)
TechEd in Houston, the Cloud Federation Service (CFS), a multi-tenant
"on-premises IdP" for large enterprises, is certified as a third-party
SSO provider for Microsoft cloud services including Microsoft Azure and
Office 365. RadiantOne CFS is a Security Token Service (STS) that
enables enterprises to secure access to cloud-based applications-even
when identities are scattered across disparate authentication sources
beyond just Active Directory.
"The majority of our customers who are trying to provide SSO to cloud
applications have users stored in many places, such as Sun/Oracle (News - Alert)
directories or SQL databases," said Michel Prompt, CEO at Radiant Logic.
"CFS extends access to Azure and Office 356 making it easier for large
enterprises dealing with multiple identity sources beyond just Active
Directory. Coupled with our virtualization layer, CFS supports the kind
of federation today's organizations need."
While Microsoft ADFS can federate identities across multiple Active
Directory forests and domains, CFS acts as a complementary service,
going above and beyond. CFS integrates with ADFS, and extends user
accounts by providing additional attributes from other data sources for
more robust authorization.
By turning disparate, fragmented identity ifrastructures into one
logical identity provider, CFS simplifies the process of federation and
single sign-on for cloud applications. CFS identifies users, routes and
authenticates against the local sources, and collects attributes from
multiple data stores to build security tokens that meet the unique needs
of each Service Provider (SP) or Relying Party (RP).
With CFS, enterprises can build a secure federated infrastructure,
offering single access point that connects all internal identity and
authentication sources to the growing world of cloud applications.
RadiantOne CFS 3.0:
