Conformity, a leader in cloud identity management, announced today that SuccessFactors has selected the Conformity product family to satisfy its internal SaaS and cloud identity management needs. Conformity also announced plans to integrate with SuccessFactors Employee Central, enabling the seamless provisioning of employees to key business applications for day one productivity. Current Employee Central customers will also be able to instantly detect changes to employee status and automatically update identity and access permissions accordingly.

Like many of its customers, SuccessFactors faces challenges that arise from the adoption and use of a wide variety of cloud applications, including:

  • Productivity issues driven by the time required to set up accounts and appropriate access privileges across a number of cloud applications for new employees during the on-boarding process.
  • Productivity, security, and help desk issues caused by the use of different usernames and passwords across all these applications for each employee.
  • Security issues caused by failures to deactivate application access quickly and completely for ex-employees and contractors.
  • Compliance issues resulting from a lack of clear visibility and audit trail reporting on the employee-to-application access map.

To overcome these challenges, SuccessFactors has adopted and deployed the ConformityCloud and ConformityConnect products. ConformityConnect is a painless, secure single sign-on (SSO) cloud service that can be deployed across an organization in less than 30 minutes and supports browser-based applications, including SaaS, cloud, and on-premise. ConformityCloud is a robust cloud identity management service that enables automated provisioning and deactivation of applications for employees and contractors, as well as critical compliance and security features related to managing roles, profiles, and policies.

“We recently adopted ConformityConnect based on the convenience it offers to our end user community, the strength of its security model, and the fact that it is easy to administer and fast to deploy,” said William Harmer, Vice President of Security at SuccessFactors. “The combination of the ConformityCloud and ConformityConnect products provides us with compliance and governance capabilities that are a natural extension to our BizX Suite and delivers secure, reliable access to all 20+ cloud applications for our employees.”

Conformity, a SuccessCloud partner, will also offer integration with SuccessFactors Employee Central. This integration will enable SuccessFactors customers to seamlessly detect and act upon changes to employee role and status, thus gaining the same benefits when using the BizX Suite, as well as any other cloud business applications.

“We know that we are not alone in facing the challenges that come with benefits of adopting cloud computing,” said Tom Fisher, Vice President of Cloud Computing at SuccessFactors. “Given our mission to allow every person in an organization to execute against their goals better and faster, we felt it was important partner with Conformity to deliver a solution that would enable our customers to arm their employees with all the tools they need on day one and to provide for secure, reliable access every day – for the BizX Suite and for all our customers’ key cloud business applications.”

As a Gold Level sponsor of SuccessFactors’ SuccessConnect Chicago conference, Conformity is launching its ConformityConnect product and will be demonstrating its products at the event.

“Conformity is pleased to announce its new ConformityConnect product at the SuccessConnect conference today,” said Tom Smith, CEO of Conformity. “We are very excited to be working with SuccessFactors as both a customer and partner. With more than 8 million users in their customer base, SuccessFactors is a market-leading partner with extraordinary vision and understanding of the needs of the cloud application market.”
