Avoco has used AWS to launch the Test Drive program for Avoco solutions, providing its customers with the ability to quickly and easily launch Avoco-solution based environments on AWS. The Avoco Identity platform enables customers to authenticate with federated social login options like Amazon retail identities.
The Test Drive program provides customers with access to AWS infrastructure and Avoco solutions that are pre-configured, enabling customers to test their capability. Each Test Drive lab includes complimentary AWS server time and is provisioned to customers in minutes. Customers can quickly evaluate and explore pre-built images of the Avoco Identity iSaml platform.
Avoco can then quickly convert this rapid evaluation environment to a customer proof-of-concept. This program will allow Avoco to help customers to quickly evaluate, and deploy, their Avoco applications on AWS. This can dramatically reduce the time-to-value and infrastructure costs for customers operating Avoco solutions.
The Test Drive will enable customers to try out AWS demonstration sites and third-party web services. It illustrates both the verification of data, federated social authentication, account creation and the consent options to share data with third-party services. Avoco is a founding member of the new Security section for the Test Drive program. Customers can try using the Avoco solutions for free by visiting http://aws.amazon.com/testdrive/security.
“The speed and flexibility of AWS was very important for Avoco when it undertook testing of major Identity Assurance deployments like the UK Government SFA, which will run to millions of users,” said Sandy Porter, Vice President and Strategy Director, Avoco Identity. “Our relationship with AWS enables Avoco to offer customers the enhanced agility and economics of the cloud, substantial cost savings, providing faster time to value for customers evaluating and deploying Avoco solutions.”
Avoco also announced the creation of an AWS Centre of Excellence within Avoco that will provide customers with a central source for continued innovation and support with Avoco applications on AWS.
“Avoco Identity is one of the initial collaborators in the AWS Security Test Drive,” said Gerry O’Brien, CEO of Avoco Identity. “The Test Drive program will be key in assisting Avoco to deploy our innovative, security and privacy-enhanced solutions on AWS.”
