Cloud Service Hosted In Europe For Identity Access Management Service, In Response To Customer Demand For Choice Over Data Residency
San Francisco, CA / Reading, UK – 4th February 2014 – OneLogin, the innovator in identity management, today announced it has launched a European service to provide cloud-based Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions and on-demand Single Sign-On (SSO) services hosted with two providers with EU operations: Rackspace and Softlayer. OneLogin makes it easier for companies to secure and manage access to applications both in the cloud and behind the firewall. The new offering will help provide customers with a service that meets European data residency and compliance standards, as well as meeting any locational preference requirements.
Customers can host their user identities within the EU service provider data centres separately from their existing US based service, providing local hosting that conforms to part of the developing EU data protection guidelines. The two providers, Rackspace and Softlayer, have data centres in London and Amsterdam respectively. This approach replicates the service design for the company’s US operations, which are hosted by Rackspace at sites in Dallas and Chicago. This expansion of services follows on from OneLogin receiving a $13 million round of Series B venture capital from lead investor The Social+Capital Partnership alongside returning investor CRV, and will support OneLogin’s planned international growth strategy.
Thomas Pedersen, CEO at OneLogin said, “This expansion into Europe provides us with an opportunity to expand our customer footprint and build on our leadership position in the cloud identity management market. By giving our customers control over where their corporate data resides, we help them be compliant with European data privacy and residency laws and regulations. This move into Europe is a major part of our IAM growth strategy, and we are continuing to expand both our technical and business development teams as well.”
Commenting on the announcement Steve Wilson, Vice President and Principal Analyst, Constellation Research, Inc. said, “The market requires a serious commitment to international privacy compliance, and vendors who deliver this capability will have an important competitive differentiator. Customers worldwide seek a choice in where they wish their users’ identity information and metadata to reside. Constellation understands the importance of having data that is portable between jurisdictions in the event the territorial cost-benefit equation changes.”
“Cloud identity management has become a sensitive decision-making point for many firms. This is an area that needs not only robust controls and policy enforcement; it also requires a solid technology service layer to operate upon. OneLogin is developing its latest Identity Access Management offering with a conscientious approach to the location, safety and access route to its customers’ corporate data streams. I am excited that Rackspace is able to provide a share of the local cloud services for OneLogin in light of the European data residency and compliance standards,” said Nigel Beighton, VP Technology Rackspace International.
OneLogin has seen rapid adoption among companies, ranging from fast-growing start-ups, like Dropbox, Pandora, Pinterest, Riot Games, Netflix, Tableau Software, tumblr, Uber, Yammer and Zendesk to established organisations such as AAA, Condé Nast, PBS, Steelcase, The Carlyle Group and Herman Miller. Prior to the EU data centre launch, OneLogin has already built a list of clients in the UK including eModeration, News Corp International, Hailo, Xyratex and Reed Recruitment.
OneLogin now hosts its application in four physically separate enterprise-grade data centres, with dedicated servers, DDoS protection, deep-packet inspection firewalls and load balancers. By design, the new implementation provides high-availability, cloud-based infrastructure and contains no single-point-of-failure. This includes built-in redundancy at every tier including DNS, data centre, application and database servers. Should one data centre become unavailable, traffic will redirect to the other data centre to ensure continuous operation. This is backed by a 99.99% uptime guarantee and all access to the data centres is video-monitored and requires card access.
OneLogin is the innovator in enterprise identity management and provides the industry’s most comprehensive solution for managing user identities, both in the cloud and behind the firewall. Unique capabilities like Cloud Search and OneLogin for iPad break down SaaS data silos and increase productivity. OneLogin’s cloud identity platform comes complete with secure single sign-on for web, mobile and iPad, federated search, user provisioning, deep directory integration with real-time user sync, out-of-band multi-factor authentication, VPN integration and compliance reporting.
