Federated identity management (FIM) is a promising approach to securing resource sharing within an organization. FIM lets users keep the same identity across multiple applications, its purpose being improving the integrity of identity-driven transactions, increasing efficiency and lowering IT costs.
With the rise of applications and devices, employees have had to create numerous login credentials. It is painful and counterproductive for employees to sign in separately into different platforms, and it’s a waste of resources when IT staff are spending a lot of time helping users with their login issues or managing multiple users across applications. With FIM, users have the same password for on-premises and cloud applications.
Its product RadiantOne offers a single view of all of a user's identities and attributes to allow for better authentication, authorization and secure access.
In the absence of single sign-on (SSO), employees are often expected to create their login for these cloud applications. Multiple login credentials expose the organization to various risks, including the potential use of easy-to-crack passwords by users. Radiant Logic helps manage single set of credentials, providing convenience to employees and IT admins, and helps in creating strong, single access.
In today’s increasingly interconnected world, organisations need to share more information than ever before. Information that is shared with suppliers, customers, partners and collaborators needs to be securely managed, and it is critical that user access is handled efficiently and effectively, as roadblocks to access reduces the use and value of applications.
Access to information needs to be immediate and effortless, but you still need to ensure that you protect your organization’s valuable data.
