myOneLogin for Cloud-Based Identity Services

Solution Delivers Easy and Speedy Strong Authentication, Single Sign-on and Federation Functionality for Cloud App Developers

Identity Session at Cloud Expo

TriCipher, a leading provider of Internet identity services, announced on Monday that the company is seeing significant traction with Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) technology providers in 2010. Within the last 3 months, TriCipher has signed nearly a dozen new SaaS technology innovators including companies like Advantec, Alkami Technology and NetDeposit.

Identity services are an absolute necessity for every SaaS application because of emerging online threats like phishing and targeted password theft schemes. However, resources spent internally implementing identity management technology take critical hours away from innovators building and improving their original product.

myOneLogin makes it easy, quick and seamless for SaaS technology innovators to embed core identity services into their SaaS solutions like strong authentication, standards-based federation and single sign-on functionality. These services help ensure that SaaS application users are safe from online threats. Users get instant access to all of their applications from any location at any time.

Technology innovators can potentially reach millions of users with their SaaS applications and through myOnLogin's scalable on-demand solution they can choose the specific services that they need most:

  • Advantec is using myOneLogin to support single sign-on to multiple properties and provide a simple, standards-based federation interface to partners.
  • Alkami Technology is using myOneLogin to integrate strong authentication with Microsoft Windows Identity Framework (formerly Geneva) claims-based authentication.
  • NetDeposit is using myOneLogin to offer customers multi-factor authentication for Web-based payment services.

myOneLogin Identity Services make it easy for developers to tap into a full range of identity protection and federation technologies. With myOneLogin, in-house experts don't need to custom develop strong authentication functionality with support for multiple federation standards like SAML, ADFS or OpenID. Instead, these technologies are accessible as on-demand services, with simple APIs for easy application integration. TriCipher's core technology is the foundation for myOneLogin and it actively protects more than six million credentials worldwide and creates private clouds for the banking and finance industry.

"myOneLogin has a clean, thin architecture, with a simple, non-invasive integration model," said Bradley Rhine, CIO of Advantec. "And because it is in the cloud, myOneLogin gives us highly-reliable, secure, evolving and standards-based authentication and federation without the cost or effort of deploying and maintaining heavyweight identity management."

"Using myOneLogin, we can de-couple authentication from our application and focus on online banking innovation," said Stephen Bohanon, President at Alkami Technology. "We manage authorization and permissions within our Oxygen Platform using Windows Identity Framework, and use myOneLogin's multi-protocol federation to link authenticated customers to our platform."

"Password-based authentication and online identity are increasingly sensitive topics for SaaS providers, so they need to be sure to do it right," said Kyle Austin, VP Engineering at TriCipher. "myOneLogin is the only 'one-and-done' identity service available today. By packaging TriCipher's expertise in strong authentication and federation as cloud-based services, we are helping SaaS providers strengthen application access and build partnerships in the cloud."
