SAN JOSE, Calif. (PRWEB) May 15, 2013
OneLogin, the innovator in enterprise identity management, today announced the availability of the OneLogin SuiteApp, built using NetSuites SuiteCloud Computing Platform. The free OneLogin SuiteApp enables enterprises to easily connect their internal Active Directory or LDAP server to NetSuite, synchronize users in real-time, deploys single sign-on (SSO) at the office or on-the-go, and enforces multi-factor authentication. The new SuiteApp comes pre-integrated with a range of applications, authentication methods, directories, VPNs and SAML tools, so NetSuite customers can get up and running in minutes with no professional services required.
NetSuites SuiteCloud is a comprehensive offering of cloud-based products, development tools, and services designed to help customers and commercial software developers take advantage of the significant economic benefits of cloud computing. The complete SuiteCloud offering includes NetSuites multi-tenant, always-on SaaS infrastructure and the NetSuite Business Suite of applications which cover accounting, enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM) and Ecommerce.
SaaS to SaaS and Saas to on-premise integration is becoming more prevalent, creating a need for cloud-based identity management and single sign-on, said Guido Haarmans, Vice President of Business Development for Technology Partnerships at NetSuite. Active Directory and LDAP are predominant identity user stores and with the OneLogin SuiteApp, NetSuite customers can now easily leverage their existing directory infrastructure to manage access to NetSuite and other cloud applications.
Working with NetSuite
The free OneLogin SuiteApp gives IT administrators a single point of control for managing users across various locations. With the OneLogin SuiteApp, there is a reduction of time and costs to access the SuiteCloud platform, and it eliminates the need for users to juggle multiple passwords and usernames.
We designed our Cloud ISV Partner Program to help SaaS vendors remove the challenge of integrating their cloud applications with on-premise directories like Microsoft Active Directory and LDAP and fully take advantage of the benefits of single sign-on and user provisioning, said Thomas Pedersen, Chief Executive Officer of OneLogin.
Single sign-on (SSO) uses centralized authentication servers that all other applications and systems utilize for authentication purposes, and combines this with techniques to ensure that users do not have to manually enter their credentials more than once. SSO overcomes password fatigue where users tend to use the same username and password, not realizing that if one vendor is compromised, accounts on other systems are put at risk too. Additionally, having to type in user names and passwords over and over again can significantly reduce an employees productivity.
Benefits of SSO include:
