GlobalSign rolls out new IAM
GMO GlobalSign, a provider of identity services for online transactions and the security division of Tokyo-based GMO Internet, debuted GlobalSign IAM-Easy, a new Identity Relationship and Access Management (IRAM) solution designed to simplify the management of customer and partner identities and their access to e-Service and portals. In as little as four weeks, GlobalSign can deliver an end-to-end solution.
Traditional Identity and Access Management solutions were designed for an internal directory focus and often lack the support for a multitude of services, identity types, authentication methods and federation protocols to manage identities for thousands of external users. By taking a business focused approach to IRAM, GlobalSign IAM-Easy offers the fastest route to managing identities and access to e-Services and portals — enabling new revenue models, reducing customer care costs and improving end-user experiences.
GlobalSign IAM-Easy is a pre-configured deployment model of the complete GlobalSign solution that is coupled with best practices. This makes it easy for organizations to register users, offer self-service identity management and multiple levels of authorization to provide secure access to their portals and e-Services. It is available for on-premise and private cloud deployments, and can be delivered in as little as 4 weeks and with a fixed cost.
GlobalSign IAM-Easydelivers efficiency and cost saving benefits by enabling business units to:
- Authenticate external users properly, and offer corporate customers single sign-on from their own network to your services
- Offer identity self-service processes, and workflows to reduce the burden on customer service and provide a positive user experience
- Know external users’ roles and what services they are accessing
- Strengthen security with support for over 20 different authentication methods, including out-of-band multi-factor methods and digital certificates for business critical transactions
- Enable external users to bring their own identities by offering user-driven federation to strengthen weak identities with strong ones — creating verified social and business identities
- Automate external user management with integration with your CRM system
- Avoid security breaches that can negatively impact business and reputation
- Implement a robust IRAM solution that can support multiple e-Services and millions of users
Identiv Partners with 3M
Identiv Inc. announced that it has entered a partnership with 3M to integrate Identiv’s uTrust TS Reader technology into 3M’s MiY multi-factor authentication biometric devices. Both Identiv and 3M will sell the completed solution.
This partnership provides Identiv and 3M’s customers with high-security assurance and forward compatibility to meet multiple compliance mandates. Identiv’s uTrust TS Reader is designed to support any existing building access system — such as Identiv, Lenel, AMAG, Honeywell, Bosch, Casi, or Software House — and provide a forward path to newer standards, such as U.S. government Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) compliance and network cabling.
The uTrust TS Reader platform supports all commercial and government access credentials, including U.S. government PIV, PIV-I and CAC.
Zwipe joins aptiQ Alliance
Zwipe joined the aptiQ Alliance Program, a group of global companies that support Allegion’s aptiQ smart card technology to create an ecosystem of solutions. Zwipe can now provide aptiQ customers with biometric authorization using their presently installed aptiQ card readers. aptiQ users will be able to authenticate themselves directly on the Zwipe biometric card without adding a biometric reader to existing aptiQ multi-technology card reader systems.
With Zwipe’s patented on-card authentication, only the authorized cardholder can activate communication with the reader. This means no more lending or borrowing ID badges to access buildings, university labs, hospital pharmacies, data centers or networks.
The on-card fingerprint scanner with 3D capacitive technology resides on the contactless smart card which is compatible with aptiQ and XceedID card readers as the Zwipe biometric card supports proximity and aptiQ MIFARE and MIFARE DESFire EV1 technologies. Without having to change out the existing readers, the Zwipe Access biometric card provides an easy, low-cost way for organizations to provide a biometric upgrade to access control systems
10Duke unveils ID as a Service
10Duke released its 10Duke Identity Provider, a cloud-based Identity-as-a Service product. In deployment with pre-launch partners the 10Duke Identity Provider supports more than 1 million active IDs worldwide and combines technicality complex identity management functionality into one API.

- Social Sign On, enabling customers to use their logins for popular social sites such as Facebook, Twitter or Yahoo, to access a company’s online application, without the need for an additional sign-up or login form, dramatically improving ease of access and conversion rates.
- Federated Identity Management where a company’s authorization system can be connected to that of a trusted partner to enable access for those partners’ personnel to access the company’s applications without the need for additional logins and passwords.
- The 10Duke Identity Provider can be deployed as a service from a private cloud, hybrid cloud or from third-party cloud providers such as Amazon, IBM SoftLayer or RackSpace.
