As organizations migrate their mission-critical applications to the cloud, the need to prevent unauthorized access increases; The OneLogin and Sheepdoginc.ca partnership gives customers an easy-to-use identity management solution that provides security-enhancing functionality, such as single sign-on, user provisioning and directory integration.
Sheepdoginc.ca, Canada’s leading Google Apps service provider, and OneLogin, a California-based cloud identity management solution, announce a partnership focused on delivering a secure yet easy-to-use identity management solution for enterprises who embrace cloud computing. In addition to Google Apps, Sheepdoginc.ca customers use several web-based applications that require a user-managed password. To enhance security and gain greater control of who accesses cloud applications, Sheepdoginc.ca customers can add OneLogin as their safe gateway to the cloud. Instead of remembering several login credentials, users can now access all their web-based application through OneLogin and IT can administer users in one, central location.
“Google Apps is one of many cloud solutions used by our customers,” explains Julia Rivard, Sheepdoginc.ca’s CEO. “By partnering with OneLogin, we enable our customers to take their siloed cloud applications and bring them under one roof to better manage access as well as remove the security issues inherent to user-managed passwords.”
Sheepdoginc.ca has worked with many small and medium businesses as well as higher education institutions. Now, larger organizations are also migrating foundation systems to the cloud. According to industry analysts, this adoption trend is set to continue: Gartner’s Software as a Service 2009 – 2014 study states that by the end of 2014, SaaS will account for as much as 16 percent of the total enterprise software market.
“OneLogin scales as an organization expands its footprint in the cloud,” says Thomas Pedersen, OneLogin’s Founder and CEO. “Our solution will therefore make it fast and easy for Sheepdoginc.ca customers to add new web-based applications, provision users and control access to the cloud.”
