ElasticSSO remains the best way to authenticate Users into Apps. Different App vendors have adopted different federated single sign-on (SSO) standard for remote authentication, such as, Shibboleth, SAML, CAS or ADFS. ElasticSSO is the only software solution in the market that interoperates with all of these standards, thereby making it a low-risk option.
Local datacenter deployment of SSO technology is critical for certain organizations for compliance and business reasons. ElasticSSO can be deployed either in the Cloud as a managed service or on-premises in customer’s local datacenter. A locally deployed solution is easily and jointly-managed by customer’s local IT staff and 9STAR’s or it’s partner’s technical support team.
ElasticSSO is highly and flexible in terms of compatibility with backend enterprise authentication systems. It can easily leverage existing enterprise authentication and attribute stores such as Active Directory, LDAP, SQL, SPNEGO, Kerberos, ADFS, CAS and others, to deliver federated single sign-on (SSO) capability. In addition, it provides a flexible authentication handling framework, which makes it deliver support for any 3rd party multi-factor (MFA) or two-factor (2FA) authentication systems, such as Google MFA, Amazon MFA, Duo, and others.
Federated SSO systems are not just about authentication but also about access management. Access is delivered based on user attributes shared with Apps after successful authentication. Sharing of user attributes requires the ability to resolve and map attributes in a flexible manner. This is what makes ElasicSSO the most interoperable, and therefore the most powerful solution in the market. ElasticSSO has a very powerful attribute resolver and mapper which makes it interoperable with the large number of Apps in the market.
