HOUSTON, TX (PRWEB) June 15, 2016
Identity Automation, the provider of the most scalable, full-lifecycle identity and access management (IAM) solution on the market, today announced the availability of RapidIdentity 4.0, providing customers with the ability to manage eight times more users, without additional hardware investments.
“The growing use of social, mobile, and cloud applications has led to greater connectivity between organizations and their customers, partners, and consultants -- creating an explosion in the number of user identities that IT and security teams must manage and secure. However, legacy IAM systems were not designed for rapid expansion and are unable to quickly scale to handle such growth,” said Troy Moreland, CTO of, Identity Automation. “We’re focused on providing customers with the functionality that they not only need now, but into the future. The scalability of RapidIdentity 4.0 is unmatched in the IAM market and in addition, we have enhanced our solution from the interface to the appliance providing customers with increased performance, improved reliability, and stronger security.”
Scalability is a key focus for Identity Automation, which manages massive IAM environments, including the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, the largest identity management service of its kind. RapidIdentity 4.0 provides increased unmatched scalability with a completely redesigned clustering system that supports more users with less hardware. For customers with large on-premise deployments, this results in infrastructure cost savings of more than 50 percent, drastically reducing the total cost of ownership.
Key features of RapidIdentity 4.0:
Newly Designed Mobile Interface Provides Faster and Better User Experience
RapidPortal, RapidIdentity’s Single Sign-On Application Portal, has been enhanced to meet the unique needs of a growing mobile and remote workforce. The new mobile interface automatically scales to fit any screen size and is ergonomically designed to align with common thumb and finger gestures used on mobile devices. Users now also experience near-instant load times from login to RapidPortal, increasing productivity and efficiency, especially for mobile workers accessing systems on the go.
Redesigned API Simplifies RapidIdentity Extension to Other Applications
The RapidIdentity API has been simplified, making it easier and more cost effective to embed RapidIdentity functionality into other systems, portals, and applications. Developers can integrate nearly all of the self-service functionality available in RapidPortal - including account claiming, password resets, challenge question selection, entitlement requests, and guest user access workflows - into existing solutions. This allows customers to integrate self-service functions where they contextually make the most sense, while still enabling RapidIdentity to manage the entire backend IAM process.
Upgraded Metadirectory Provides a Viable Alternative to AD and eDirectory
RapidIdentity 4.0 addresses the needs of organizations needing to implement a new metadirectory, but wanting an alternative to Microsoft Active Directory or Novell eDirectory. The RapidIdentity identity store is a massively scalable, flexible, and adaptable enterprise-class metadirectory, capable of handling billions of objects and designed for organizations that manage millions of identities and entitlements. With this offering, Identity Automation provides all the necessary components for a complete IAM solution, saving customers the time and hassle of managing multiple vendors.
RapidIdentity 4.0 is available immediately to new customers and as an upgrade to existing Identity Automation customers. For more information about RapidIdentity, visit http://www.identityautomation.com.
