Simplify User Authentication in the Cloud with OneLogin’s Active Directory Connector

OneLogin’s new Active Directory Connector enables the authentication of cloud application users against an organization’s Active Directory. While IT benefits from having a single directory integration point, employees can use their Windows credentials to access web applications, hosted in the cloud and behind the firewall.

Santa Monica, CA, December 13, 2010: OneLogin Inc., a cloud single sign-on and identity management provider, announces its Active Directory Connector that enables the authentication of cloud application users against an organization’s Active Directory.

New Active Directory Connector Simplifies User Authentication

OneLogin announces its Active Directory Connector that enables the authentication of cloud application users against an organization’s Active Directory.

By eliminating the need for employees to remember several usernames, passwords and login URLs, OneLogin increases the adoption of cloud applications and reduces the security risks inherent with the repeated use of weak login credentials.

“Enterprises are keen to reap the benefits of cloud computing, but do not want to abandon their existing IT infrastructure,” explains Thomas Pedersen, CEO at OneLogin. “Our new Active Directory Connector allows them to extend their directories deep into the cloud with no custom development required.”

System Uptime and @OneLoginOps

As part of our ongoing commitment to providing excellent customer service, we are introducing uptime statistics on our website

www.onelogin.com/uptime

 as well as a Twitter operations account.

twitter.com/oneloginops

Monthly statistics will be updated at the beginning of each month. In the event of downtime, updates will be published at @oneloginops and once the issue has been resolved, details about the issue can be found on our availability page.

We use Pingdom to monitor our service every minute from multiple locations around the world. In the evnet of a downtime alert, we will investigate and post any relevant details. We occasionally get reports that OneLogin is unreachable from certain locations in the world, but since these are isolated network problems and unrelated to OneLogin and our hosting provider Rackspace, they will not be included the statistics. Real downtime where the system is actually unavailable for all our customers will be included in the statistics.

We are going to report two numbers. Total uptime is the total uptime for the month and includes both planned and unplanned downtime. SLA uptime is the uptime we commit to in Service Level Agreements and do not include planned downtime.
