Tools4ever, the market leader in identity governance and administration (IGA), is introducing an Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) cloud solution, called HelloID. Users can now enjoy the single sign-on (SSO) experience inside, as well as outside, of a corporate network. By logging in just once, users gain easy access to cloud applications on their smartphones, tablets or laptops from anywhere there is a connection. The arrival of HelloID means users outside an organization’s corporate network can log in quickly and easily with the device of their choice.
For more than eight years Tools4ever has offered an SSO solution (E-SSOM) that reduced the many passwords end users needed to access things on their internal network to just a single password. For employees active outside the corporate network and wanting to access cloud applications with a tablet, smartphone and/or laptop, there is now a convenient cloud-based SSO solution in HelloID.
E-SSOM and HelloID are integrated seamlessly, making it possible to offer end users 100 percent SSO regardless of their physical location, network connection, endpoint device or the application being accessed.
HelloID makes accessing applications easy by seamlessly integrating into an organization’s portal where users already go for other information. It can also be offered through a familiar URL if a portal interface is not desired. By integrating HelloID into an existing portal, organizations make it simple for users to quickly find and access all the applications they need from a single dashboard. Once logged into the portal, the user sees an overview of the available cloud applications (e.g. Google Apps, Salesforce, Office 365, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.) and simply clicks on that application’s icon.
“The greatest frustration among users is that they frequently have to enter a username and password to log into the various applications they use each day,” said Jacques Vriens, general manager of Tools4ever. “This can lead to security issues since employees often write down their passwords. With Enterprise Single Sign On Manager, Tools4ever has been for years offering a solution that reduces the user’s many passwords to just one single password. Now with HelloID the same can be achieved for all cloud applications the employee needs to access.”
No additional logins are required. Security is maintained and they can get started immediately in the selected application. HelloID is 100 percent compatible with an organization’s cloud applications.
Tools4ever offers a broad range of preconfigured connectors for cloud applications, including Salesforce, Google Apps and Office 365. System administrators can also easily add applications to the portal if needed. HelloID has a wide range of interfaces to perform authentication against external directory services, such SAML, LDAP, AD and SQL databases.
