Edina, MN, United States, 2011/03/24 - Indigo Identityware, Inc. (Indigo), a rapidly-growing leader in the Identity & Access Management industry, has announced their exclusive ability to provide the only strong authentication identity solution that works in any Virtual Desktop environment.
Indigo Identityware, Inc. (Indigo), a rapidly-growing leader in the Identity & Access Management industry, has announced their exclusive ability to provide the only strong authentication identity solution that works in any Virtual Desktop environment. Unlike others in the identity and access industry, Indigo works within Citrix' XenDesktop and XenApps as well as in VMware and Terminal Services.
VDI is the practice of publishing the desktop of a virtual machine that is stored on a central server. An end user may gain access to this virtual desktop through a local area network connection or a web interface.
"There is a definitive and powerful movement within companies and organizations toward the VDI environment with expectations of cost savings and ease of maintenance," said Thomas Rheineck, Indigo's Chief Executive Officer. "This calls for an equally important move for those in the identity & access management (IAM) industry to provide methods for securing those connections and applications within those virtual desktops. Only a vendor on the leading edge of software development, such as Indigo, possesses all of the tools necessary to overcome the challenges set by the VDI environment."
Indigo's strong authentication and Single Sign-on (SSO) solutions provide the flexibility required for the virtual environment; strong authentication, secondary authentication, local and remote strong authentication and SSO, and one-touch "live-user-switching".
