VMware announces industry's first Identity-as-a-Service solution


VMware, a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, today announced industry’s first Identity-as-a-Service, Identity Manager.

Identity Manager is an Identity as a Service (IDaaS) offering, providing application provisioning, self-service catalog, conditional access controls and Single Sign-On (SSO) for SaaS, web, cloud and native mobile applications. This identity management solution is offered on-premises and as a shared cloud service hosted on vCloud Air.

Key features and capabilities of VMware Identity Manager include:

One-Touch Single Sign On from any device to web, mobile and Windows applications without modification or app wrapping to help streamline access.

Unique Adaptive Access is delivered by a tight integration between VMware Identity Manager and AirWatch® Enterprise Mobility Management™. This integration provides an additional factor of authentication from enrolled devices that is both stronger and easier to use than passwords, while also maintaining conditional access policies between managed and unmanaged devices.

A Customizable and Context Aware HTML5 Application Portal empowers employees with a simple onboarding experience, automated app provisioning, and more secure application access across any device.

Enterprise-Class Infrastructure that is reliable and more secure, running in the cloud or on-premises, and federates existing on-premises Microsoft Active Directory infrastructures to centralize end-user management.
