As more organizations migrate to the cloud, they discover that their on-premises security solutions stop functioning at the perimeter. In response to this challenge our Privileged Identity Management platform, Lieberman RED Identity Management, securely manages credentials and access to both cloud and on-premises resources using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML).
SAML – an XML-based, open-standard – is growing as an enterprise federation portal due to increased cloud adoption. RED Identity Management not only manages systems and identities in the cloud but now also uses the cloud and federation of systems as a way of authenticating and authorizing users.
SAML Authentication Support Out of the Box
RED Identity Management now supports a broad range of SAML federation identity providers. We’ve collaborated with Microsoft (ADFS), Okta, Ping Identity (PingOne), OneLogin and other SAML-compatible services to provide rapid deployment in federated environments, via direct configuration.
With these integrations, Lieberman Software can grant Okta, Ping Identity, OneLogin and ADFS users secure and seamless access to sensitive systems, applications and credentials – both on-premises and in the cloud.
SAML Authentication for Privileged Identity Management
SAML authentication provides a secure Single Sign On (SSO) process that lets authenticated users access RED Identity Management in the same way they access their other applications. The integrations ensure that only authorized and audited personnel can access the privileged credentials stored in RED Identity Management.
To further enhance the authorization process, RED Identity Management can also process group membership assertions made by the SAML provider or even filter for specific assertions to ensure too much access is not accidentally granted.
Simplified user lifecycle management is another benefit of the SAML authentication integrations. Former employees and contractors lose their access to RED Identity Management when they are cut off from their federated authentication service.
Other RED Identity Management Secure Authentication Options
This new SAML authentication capability is in addition to RED Identity Management’s support for legacy on-premises authentication and authorization solutions, such as Active Directory and LDAP. RED Identity Management also supports OAUTH2 and OpenID.
