Authentication is the entry point to an information system. In the event of unavailability, all of a company's services can become paralyzed. It is a critical point where the level of security must be high with high availability.
That is why at Cloud-IAM, our deployments natively integrate the most secure authentication protocols that exist, which are constantly updated and maintained.
With SSO, the days of having post-it notes with usernames and passwords on desks are over. This technology enhances security since users no longer need to remember multiple usernames and passwords, reducing the risk of forgetting or sharing them with others. Furthermore, SSO allows administrators to control user access to multiple applications simultaneously, making identity and access management easier.
To demonstrate compliance with standards such as GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI DSS, the use of MFA in combination with SSO can help meet these requirements. By adding an additional layer of security, MFA strengthens the overall security posture, making accounts less vulnerable to brute-force attacks and password theft. At Cloud-IAM, MFA can also provide a seamless user experience. Our users can configure various authentication methods and choose the ones that best suit them.
Federated identity with Keycloak managed, who is natively integrated into all of our deployments, enhances access security by eliminating the need to manage passwords for each individual application. Federation protocols employ encryption and digital signature mechanisms to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of exchanged identity data.
Cloud-IAM natively integrates the most robust protocols in all its deployments to ensure the highest level of security. This includes the SAML 2.0 protocol, ,OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect. These protocols play complementary roles in identity and access management (IAM) environments and are natively integrated into all of our deployments.
OAuth 2.0 is an authorization protocol for accessing resources
OpenID Connect is an extension of OAuth 2.0 for identity-based authentication.
SAML 2.0 protocol, primarily used for identity federation and single sign-on (SSO).
