Yubico and OneLogin have teamed up to provide an access management solution for multiple cloud-based applications. Singapore financial services company Sterling Knight has implemented this system in order to address security, compliance and cost challenges.
The solution allows remote workers to use Yubico’s authentication key, which generates a One-Time Password for OneLogin’s single sign-on and identity management service. Users can then securely access the OneLogin Application Portal that leads them to Sterling Knight’s Web applications.
“With OneLogin and YubiKey, we are able to login securely to our cloud-based applications such as Google Apps and salesforce.com with one password and the simple click of a button,” said Lawrence Adam, COO at Sterling Knight. “The implementation of the OneLogin/YubiKey solution was so simple that even our least technical employees were trained to use it in about 15 minutes.”
Joint solutions may be the wave of the future when dealing with cloud-based applications. Reviews from market research firm IDC find that cloud-based solutions can be made both viable and secure.
“For those that are looking to eliminate multiple passwords and strengthen their access controls without putting too much pressure on their budgets and staff should consider these types of solutions from Yubico and OneLogin,” said Sally Hudson, research director, Identity and Access Management Products and Services at IDC.
