With its continued adoption of cloud applications, this logistics company faced a growing problem related to user accounts and passwords—there were simply too many for IT and users to manage. This challenge kicked off an initiative to level-up the maturity of its IAM program.
For several years prior, the company had been using a single service provider for all of its IT needs. But given a new plan for more agile and responsive business operations, it recently had transitioned from one provider to six.
Part of that expansion involved an exhaustive evaluation of IAM solutions, including both on-premise solutions and cloud services.
The selection criteria included: single sign-on, multi-factor authentication, access governance and reporting, Active Directory integration, EU data residency, high availability SLA agreement, simple and resource-efficient app integration, and low ongoing management requirements.
After exploring on-premise options—which involved moving four test environments with over a dozen servers and the acquisition of new network infrastructures—the company looked to a cloud solution as a more efficient alternative. OneLogin rose to the top of the list for both its implementation and functionality. “With OneLogin, all the functionality was just there,” said the Enterprise Security Architect.
Since engaging OneLogin, the logistics company has solved a number of security and access challenges. It is now operating with fewer passwords, more efficient users and better user automation that enables 25,000 users to securely and conveniently access 300 apps. “SSO as a capability is now a reality across the enterprise. We had a meeting just this morning about a new application that supports federations, and I told them we can have SSO in an afternoon. It’s gone from being an aspiration to being, not only a reality, but a reality within a couple of hours,” remarks the Enterprise Security Architect.
OneLogin brings speed and integrity to the modern enterprise with an award-winning single sign-on and identity management platform. Our portfolio of solutions secure connections across all users, all devices and every application, helping enterprises drive new levels of business integrity and operational velocity across their entire app portfolios.
