Enterprises are adopting federated SSO to cloud SaaS apps such as Google Apps and Salesforce to reduce helpdesk costs associated with password resets. But there’s another good reason to centralize authentication in the enterprise: it lets you you perform two-factor strong authentication to enable secure access to these cloud applications. Strong authentication via hardware tokens has been used to secure internal app access for some time, but recent events have shown this method to have serious downsides. As the cloud, partners, and a remote workforce drive demand for access to sensitive applications outside the traditional firewall, clearly a more convenient, adaptive, and portable strong authentication model is required. The emergence of federated internet SSO and mobile-based software tokens provide a more powerful, flexible approach.
Join Intel & McAfee, along with special guest Eve Maler of Forrester Research, in this webinar to explore the linkages between adaptive strong auth and federated SSO. You will learn:
•How to enable strong auth with federated SSO to SaaS applications like Google Apps and Salesforce
•How to make the strong auth adaptive based on contextual elements such as target application, who the user is, which group he belongs to, which client device are they accessing from, and such
•How SAML makes authentication context portable and enables federated SSO
•How to deliver one-time passwords over various channels such as smartphone apps, SMS, email, and Yubikeys
•How to keep management costs low for strong auth with self registration
