IAM Cloud Halves Remote Authentication Costs Thursday 21 July 2011 PDF Print 21 July 2011 – IAM Cloud, enterprise strength Authentication-as-a-Service that simplifies secure remote IT access and costs 50% less on average than managed authentication services has been launched by www.iam-secure.com, powered by the Identity & Access Management specialist Nexus. To be available exclusively at www.iam-secure.com from next quarter, IAM Cloud provides fast two-factor authentication deployment via SMS, soft tokens and OATH standard hardware tokens with no new infrastructure requirements or costs – just a low monthly subscription fee per user. IAM Cloud aims to reduce the overheads associated with enterprise strength authentication platforms, often delivered as a managed service or requiring large hardware investments. It also provides greater authentication choice than low cost pay per use SMS authentication services. Based on industry standards IAM Cloud interoperates easily with existing remote access applications and security systems. Any application, router, firewall or gateway that supports RADIUS can use IAM Cloud’s simple and cost effective authentication benefits. Hosted within a secure data centre IAM Cloud allows specifically authorised remote services to identify and authenticate their users via multiple Two Factor Authentication methods. RADIUS protocols for external access and encrypted internal access provides security and privacy assurance. Customers nominate which of their servers will make the authentication requests. It is then validated and added to the firewall and RADIUS configuration so that only that server can authenticate users. Nic Sarginson, head of technology, IAM Secure, said, “With authentication now the gatekeeper of remote worker productivity many organisations pay over the odds for managed services and hardware intensive solutions that simply aren’t necessary. IAM Cloud will allow them to have sophisticated authentication with no infrastructure costs and that can be scaled up and down to meet changing requirements.” IAM Cloud compliments the full IAM Secure product range: *IAM Remote - a software based SSL VPN solution providing users with swift remote access to environments. *IAM Authentic - a software based two factor authentication solution that gives organisations the peace of mind to know the user that is attempting to access the network is who they say they are. *IAM Secure Suite - is a combination of both products giving both corporate and end user simple and easy to understand remote access to corporate resources.
