OpenIAM’s Self-Service Portal Strengthens Security and Increases Productivity

No Comments

CORTLANDT MANOR, NY JUNE 21, 2016: OpenIAM, a top Open Source Identity and Access Management vendor, has bolstered security at organizations while increasing employee productivity through its automated Self-Service Portal. In lieu of calls to the help desk due to forgotten passwords, which often results in long periods of downtime, users can quickly and securely reset their login credentials and resume being operational.

Employees have numerous options that are fast, secure and convenient when it comes to resetting their passwords through the OpenIAM Self-Service Portal. For instance, there are challenge response questions that can be customized so that users can reset their credentials by providing answers only they would know. Additionally, employees can create a new password using a One Time Token that is securely sent to their mobile device. All of this translates into no downtime due to forgotten passwords.

“There is an increased security risk during the call to the help desk as the agent assisting the user may not adequately screen the user before changing their password. This leaves valuable company resources potentially open to attack. OpenIAM’s fully automated Self Service portal reduces this risk,” said Ameet Shah, Chief Marketing Officer of OpenIAM.

OpenIAM offers one of the most comprehensive Self Service portals currently available that allows you to reset your password securely and quickly. Downtime due to forgotten passwords is eliminated and productivity is resumed. This feature provides the following capabilities:

  • Web-based challenge-response using security questions
  • One Time Token via SMS/Text to reset a password in case the user forgot their questions
  • Windows credential provider to unlock a user’s account in case they locked themselves out of their windows desktop
  • Self Service change password functionality
  • Active Directory password filter that allows users to change their password in Windows and have it synched back to IDM

The Self Service portal is one of the many features of the OpenIAM Identity and Access Governance platform that is in use in deployments around the globe.

OpenIAM Announces a Distributor Partnership with Chuanhow Technologies for Asian markets

No Comments

Cortlandt Manor, NY (PRWEB) April 23, 2015:

OpenIAM, a leading provider of Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions, has formed a business alliance with Chuanhow Technologies. The purpose of the alliance is to offer companies in Asia a mature, full-featured yet economical Identity and Access Management solution.

“We see strong potential for the OpenIAM solution in the Asian markets,” said Ameet Shah, OpenIAM VP of Marketing. “Companies are increasingly interested in the cost savings offered through automation as well as improved security and governance.”

OpenIAM offers a comprehensive unified solution that is significantly easier to deploy and configure. It has been designed to co-exist in a heterogeneous environment where organizations may have a blend of cloud and on-premise solutions. As part of this alliance, Chuanhow will help develop the partner network in Asia to distribute, implement and support the OpenIAM solution.

“We are very pleased to partner with OpenAM,” said Junhao Chen, CEO of Chuanhow. “Because many companies have begun to import cloud solutions, identity security will play an important role. OpenIAM information security products have won several awards. We see tremendous growth opportunities in our existing business.”

Current IAM offerings available in Asia are expensive, highly complex and difficult to deploy. Many of these solution providers have been slow to innovate and adapt to the changing needs resulting from cloud and mobile computing. This has limited the number of options available to companies looking to incorporate Identity and Access Management.

The OpenIAM solution suite offers customers the following functionality:

  • Authentication and Authorization
  • Selfservice portal for end users to manage their own profile, request approval, and change password
  • Forgot password management
  • Single sign-on to cloud and on-premise applications
  • Automated Provisioning and De-provisioning
  • Access review and certification
  • Audit and compliance
  • One Time Password (OTP)

End customers will gain the following benefits:

  • Operational efficiency: Automated account provisioning and de-provisioning significantly reduces the burden on IT staff.
  • Improved end user productivity: Single sign-on and self-service saves end-users time by not having to repeatedly login and improve security
  • Improved audit and compliance: Fine-grained audit allows customers to see how to do what and when and meet regulatory mandates.
