How The British Red Cross streamlined access to vital applications by using OneLogin

The British Red Cross, established in 1870, helps millions of people in the UK and around the world get the support they need if crisis strikes. They are a part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, the world’s largest independent humanitarian network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies around the world.

In the UK, the British Red Cross has 300 sites and offices, staffed by over 2,500 permanent employees and 32,000 volunteers, all dedicated to providing support for refugees, independent living, mobility aid, educational services, and other services to support some of the UK’s most vulnerable people.

With so many people to manage and so much data to process, security was a top priority for the British Red Cross. In 2015, the British Red Cross implemented OneLogin as their Unified Access Management (UAM) vendor of choice. Phil Paul, Head of Service Delivery, at the British Red Cross, led this effort and has not looked back since, “OneLogin has given us that mobility and agility within the business to provide what the organisation is asking us for.”

Paul continues, “We can now provide the use of mobile phones, tablets and other mechanisms that can be readily available to our service users. Gone are the days of just sitting there at your desk with a laptop. It’s enabled us to be more agile…Now, when we roll out a new product it’s not so much about how you use it with OneLogin but, in fact, about how your product has actually been placed behind OneLogin. It provides compliance and it allows us to have that single platform that provides that collection of services that can be used across our entire organisation.”
