Industry’s First No-Installation ESSO Client Also Extends Single Sign-On to New Users

July 17, 2008 — New York, NY; Passlogix®, Inc., today announced the general availability of the v-GO® Sign-On Platform™ – On Demand Edition, the first client-side solution for enterprise single sign-on (ESSO) that does not require traditional software installation on end users’ computers. v-GO On Demand Edition can be accessed with a click from a corporate Web page, simplifying ESSO deployments as well as extending the technology to new users.

v-GO’s new on-demand distribution option makes it possible to:

• Reduce ESSO implementation effort by eliminating the need to configure all destination computers to accept the installation, perform pre-deployment system integration tests, and rely on desktop refresh or scheduled push procedures for installation of the ESSO client.

• Extend single sign-on to remote, mobile and temporary users and all other partners in the extended enterprise, including home computers, physicians’ offices that require access to hospital networks, third-party partners or outsourcers, contractors, and other workstations outside those owned by the enterprise.

• Apply software updates and rollbacks automatically, without conventional distribution and installation strategies, and manage them from a central location.

“v-GO On Demand Edition creates a new model for ESSO deployments that not only speeds the distribution of client software but also allows more users to take advantage of enterprise single sign-on,” said Passlogix vice president of strategy and product management Stephane Fymat. “v-GO can now be deployed and used on an anytime/anywhere basis. No other ESSO vendor has this capability.”

In addition to v-GO SSO (Single Sign-On), the v-GO On Demand Edition is available for add-on v-GO modules including v-GO AM (Authentication Manager), which extends strong authentication to any application for end users as well as system administrators; v-GO PM (Provisioning Manager), which enables user credentials to be automatically added to v-GO SSO from the leading identity management systems for zero-touch provisioning; and v-GO SAM (Shared Accounts Manager), which provides the industry-first ability to control shared password access to privileged accounts through an ESSO infrastructure.

The functionality of all v-GO On Demand Editions is identical to that of their installed counterparts. In the case of v-GO SSO, for example, both versions eliminate the need for end users to create, remember, manage and update multiple application passwords by automating the process of password entry. The system automatically and securely signs the user into any number of Windows, mainframe or Web applications after a single network logon without requiring the user to submit additional identification or authentication, eliminating user frustration as well as the administrative and security complications of managing multiple passwords.
In the case of v-GO SAM, the On Demand Edition extends the benefits of shared account password management by allowing system administrators to securely access a privileged system account from any machine in any location to expedite troubleshooting.

Users can also download all four v-GO On Demand Editions as an integrated package simply by clicking a link, making it possible to check out a shared credential, provision it to his or her single sign-on account, sign on to the network device, and use strong authentication both to request access and sign on to the network resource – all without ever exposing a password in the clear.
