OneLogin, the innovation leader in cloud-based identity & management services, today announced the debut of OneLogin for iPad, the first native iPad app that offers enterprise-class identity and access management for private and public cloud applications.
Available today via the App Store, OneLogin for iPad seamlessly extends OneLogin’s cloud-based identity access management solution, allowing mobile users to easily move from desktop to laptop to mobile device and access the same apps, using the same network credentials.
"Our industry-first iPad app has mobilized one-click access to any web application, securely and at no additional cost," said Thomas Pedersen, chief executive officer of OneLogin. "Before today, mobile users were forced to deal with watered down versions of applications, and the cumbersome process of entering information on the iPad hampered both productivity and adoption. Today, we can take virtually any SaaS application and make it immediately useful on the iPad."
For increased security, OneLogin for iPad leverages the same multi-factor authentication as OneLogin’s web-based solution and works with partners including RSA SecurID, Symantec VIP Access, Yubico and VASCO DIGIPASS & IDENTIKEY. The app also allows for identity-driven iPad security, allowing IT executives to address bring your own device (BYOD) security concerns by managing access down to the user and application level.
"Mobile device management (MDM) has done a good job of securing the first wave of mobile devices entering the workforce, but can often fall short in providing capabilities that secure the applications themselves," notes Eric Ahlm, research director with Gartner, Inc. "We are seeing a trend of companies struggling with the ‘next app’ phenomenon asking Gartner how to secure a broader set of applications on mobile platforms beyond email."
According to Gartner, Inc. Apple’s iOS is predicted to remain the dominant media tablet operating system around the world in 2012 with 61.4% sales to end users.
Netflix’s IT department, for example, notes that iPads are the dominant tablet used by employees remotely. The company avoids BYOD pitfalls with OneLogin for iPad by managing user access instead of thousands of individual devices. Users keep their personal apps and data private, while corporate applications and data remain secure and protected. IT can also roll out new SaaS apps without having the employees needing to install anything. They can access the new app via the OneLogin app portal inside of their iPads, workstations or laptops.
"OneLogin for iPad streamlines the process of connecting remotely, greatly improving employee productivity," said Mike Kail, vice president of IT operations at Netflix. "There are no forgotten passwords or usernames for individual web apps—everything works with a secure, single sign-on. Plus, we can revoke access quickly and easily to any mobile user’s cloud-based apps simply by deleting the account from Active Directory. This capability gives me tremendous peace of mind about the security of our corporate applications and data."
