Symplified Updates Cloud Security, Includes Kindle Fire Version
Cloud security specialist Symplified has released the Winter 2011 update to its identity access and management (IAM) solution. This latest version features a bevy of new features, most notably a new entry-level version called Symplified ONE and support for the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet.
The core Symplified IAM offering is designed to offer single sign-on (SSO) integration with a whole range of cloud apps. But for organizations that really just need Symplified’s access control layer on top of one solitary SaaS application, enter Symplified ONE (oh, now I get it). Symplified ONE is described in the press release as low-cost and simple to deploy, bringing easy user access to that one cloud app just by logging into the corporate network, thanks to Active Directory integration. Plus, it works with smartphones and tablets.
And speaking of tablets, the Kindle Fire support is pretty straightforward: Symplified customers can now use a special URL to access a version of the SSO portal that’s optimized for the tablet’s screen. It may not sound like much, but it speaks to the surprising enterprise potential of the cloud-friendly device.
Other new features in the Winter 2011 release include support for strong authentication (otherwise known as multifactor authentication or MFA), automatic security certificate generation and expiration notifications.
Symplified ONE is available now for $1 per user per month starting at $100 for the first 100 users, with Amazon Kindle Fire support slated to be available in January 2012. We’ll continue to watch Symplified as it expands its offering, so stay tuned.
