We're predicting some of the most aggressive growth of our SoftLayer-enhanced Gateway services will occur with our international clients. - Lighthouse CTO Eric Maass.
Lincoln, RI (PRWEB) February 26, 2014
Lighthouse Security Group today announced it will localize hosting and operations of Lighthouse Gateway™, its award-winning, cloud-based, identity and access management (IAM) platform, in EMEA and APAC over the next 4 - 6 months. The Gateway service expansion is expected to improve overall accessibility, performance, and responsiveness to regulatory, market and customer dynamics.
"Regulations are a significant factor for many of our overseas clients, and the way they persist and use identity data internationally is constantly being reevaluated as regulations continue to emerge and mature. The availability of Lighthouse Gateway services locally to Europe and Asia will allow them to pick and choose how and where certain identity data is used and to segment transactions by geographical policy, providing them with an enhanced ability to meet increasing regulatory demands,” explained Lighthouse CTO Eric Maass.
Developed by Lighthouse Security Group as an alternative to on-premise IAM infrastructure, Lighthouse Gateway offers companies of all sizes the ability to address complex IAM business challenges, such as user provisioning, single sign-on, web access management, and federation – without the need for costly and complex on-premise systems.
Today, with over 14 million users in over 57 countries, Lighthouse’s customers are employing enterprise-class IAM via the Gateway with benefits such as: rapid ROI with 25-75 percent faster implementations compared to on-premise deployment; lower total cost of ownership, with typical savings of 30-60 percent over the first three years of operation; and reduced administrative overhead, allowing IT managers to focus on high-value business initiatives.
Lighthouse is currently targeting to have instances of the Gateway ready for client use in both Amsterdam and Singapore by mid-year.
