Dell Introduces New Cloud Access Manager; Includes Security Analytics Engine
Dell today announced the release of Dell One Identity Cloud Access Manager 8.0, which leverages Dell’s new Security Analytics Engine to give organizations control of web-based applications and OpenID Connect-compliant mobile application access activities within the organization. This control improves security and enables easier, appropriate access across a wide range of application types and access scenarios. Adding new social and mobile authentication capabilities, Cloud Access Manager gives users secure and convenient access to the broadest range of both legacy and emerging applications, while providing IT with the security and control it requires.
Cloud Access Manager 8.0 addresses a number of customer pain points. Organizations today typically have a highly diverse user population as well as partners and customers who require access but are completely outside of IT’s control. All of these users require instant, always-on access to a variety of applications – on-premises, cloud-based and mobile – and IT must be able to provide this access with unparalleled security that enhances business agility, while still protecting critical corporate assets and data.
The evolution of both the user and the application requires an evolution in the way organizations approach access management and security. They must switch from traditional approaches addressing point-in-time risk and security implemented in silos, to an adaptive approach focusing on contextual security that ensures access is appropriate in real-time, while moving security from a productivity barrier to a business enabler.
Cloud Access Manager 8.0 adds powerful, adaptive control to its already extensive access control over activities across the organization, empowering better, more accurate access decisions
Cloud Access Manager provides unified single sign-on that includes federation and legacy authentication types, along with the capabilities of Dell’s Security Analytics Engine to execute security in context – the "who, what, where, how, and why" of access activities – and adjust enforcement to ideally suit the situation. Dell’s Security Analytics Engine correlates this contextual information with enforcement capabilities to make all access appropriate every time, all the time, and without hindering productivity for an ever-evolving user who continues to access applications in new and more complex ways. New features in Cloud Access Manager 8.0 include:
John Milburn, executive director, Identity and Access Management, Dell Security
"To maintain secure access at all times, it is critical for IT to have a view of the context surrounding access activities, including access policies, time of day, and manageability of the device. When changes in context occur, access security can be adapted in real time. Because our newest version of Cloud Access Manager leverages the security in context capabilities of Dell’s Security Analytics Engine, our customers get a powerful view of the access activities across their organization. The business can ensure access is appropriate every time, all the time, and users can focus on being productive."
