We were already sold on the benefits of the cloud for asset management and service desk
Cary, NC (PRWEB) November 08, 2012
SAManage, the leader in cloud-based, integrated IT Service Desk and IT Asset Management software, in partnership with OneLogin, a cloud-based Identity and Access Management (IAM) provider, recently introduced LDAP/Active Directory integration with SAManage’s cloud-based offering. This combination of technologies significantly enhances the end-user experience when requesting IT service and interacting with support personnel. Importantly for users of OneLogin is that a Single Sign-On (SSO) foundation is laid down for all cloud/SaaS based solutions across the enterprise.
One of the early adopters is Fugro Inc. "We were already sold on the benefits of the cloud for asset management and service desk," said Ismael Carlo, IT Manager, Shared Services at Fugro, Inc., "We were transitioning from Altiris to a cloud-based solution from SAManage. OneLogin's ability to deliver SSO and tie it to our Active Directory made the move to the cloud a smooth process for us in IT and seamless for our end-users. OneLogin will help us as we plan our cloud strategy."
SAManage users can now use OneLogin to:
Synchronize their users from the AD / LDAP into SAManage.
Enable SSO through OneLogin for the purpose of accessing the SAManage self-service portal.
Allow administrators to associate assets with users and track assignment / ownership of assets.
Easily migrate from legacy on-premise service desk products to SAManage, and to bulk-load the user list from AD/LDAP into SAManage.
The integration is available for free for SAManage customers via OneLogin. "We recognize the future rests in the cloud. People are being inundated with the number of passwords they have to remember. Our partners need their customers to have quick and easy access to their applications," explained OneLogin CEO, Thomas Pedersen. "OneLogin delivers that."
SAManage users can deploy OneLogin in their environment and use OneLogin to retrieve the users’ lists from AD/LDAP. OneLogin will create user accounts in SAManage via the SAManage SAML integration and deliver SSO capabilities to SAManage. Users can then sign into the SAManage self-service portal with their existing credentials. Doron Gordon, CEO of SAManage, shares, "As a cloud solution provider, we know that we make managing assets and tickets much easier for IT professionals than maintaining an on-premise solution. In line with this, it is our goal to make the move to the cloud as seamless as possible. Partnering with OneLogin was the right move for us. The real winners in this partnership are the SAManage customers."
