Global cloud computing company 8Kmiles is helping enterprises rapidly set up identity federations through the FuGen Multi-domain Identity Services Platform (MISP).
The company claims these identity federations are set up with minimum friction and cost ownership. The MISP also establishes a delivery infrastructure for several tasks such as scaling, automated partner testing and monitoring of deployments through real-time compliance certification.
8KMiles Software Services acquired FuGen Solutions for $7.5 million in May this year. This strategic move enabled 8KMiles to address the security and compliance requirements of large enterprises and government agencies.
Elaborating further on the MISP, 8Kmiles says that it is designed to support more than 15 government profiles and process templates to simplify the establishment of large federation communities.
As it can support more than 200 pre-configured and validated SaaS (News - Alert) applications, it helps customers in rapid federation deployments while complying with policies and mandates from the government.
“The new FuGen MISP will not only strengthen the deep expertise 8KMiles already holds in secure virtual cloud solutions, but the new hub user interface already supports more than 200 SaaS applications out of the box,” said Suresh Venkatachari, 8KMiles chairman and CEO.
The FuGen MISP has the ability to work both on-premises or from a private/hybrid cloud. This ability improves the efficiency of existing Identity and Access Management and legacy services.
Also, this platform enables enterprise customers to establish federated identity access with their partners in addition to helping them effectively manage automated compliance certification and monitoring.
Other benefits include reduced costs and having to deal with fewer numbers of interoperability and compliance issues as previously. Enterprises also require less time to integrate and scale identity federations.
“By providing industry leading expertise and methodology, we also equip our users with significant cost savings for cross domain SSO implementation through the MISP-hosted interoperability virtual test environments for disparate infrastructures and real-time monitoring,” said COO at 8KMiles, Lena Kannappan.
