RSA Releases Three Security Solutions


New identity management tools offer improved cloud integration.

RSA has announced three new solutions within its Identity and Access Management (IAM) suite. According to the company, these solutions are engineered to create a dynamic perimeter around online user sessions, selectively and securely provide identity information to cloud applications and partners, and establish faster identity federation with cloud applications.

The new RSA Access Manager aims to provide secure access to web applications through web single sign-on, consolidate access controls for enhanced security, and accelerate application deployment. It supports a broad range of authentication methods, including integration with RSA Adaptive Authentication for out-of-band phone and the new support for out-of-band email risk-based authentication.

The RSA Adaptive Directory correlates and aggregates identity information across enterprise sources and delivers a global view of identity using a flexible, scalable identity virtualization layer. 

The RSA Adaptive Federation solution provides secure identity federation as a service to ensure appropriate access to resources and data in SaaS applications. RSA Adaptive Federation, which is powered by VMware Horizon Application Manager, allows secure access to and from the cloud while lowering deployment and operating expenses associated with internally hosted products. The solution eliminates the need for employees to remember sign-on credentials for each cloud application and allows them to securely use any browser-enabled device for access to cloud applications. According to the announcement, RSA Adaptive Federation is designed to interoperate with Microsoft Windows operating systems and RSA SecurID authentication already deployed at organizations.
