PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
The cloud, mobile computing, and APIs are empowering enterprises to
extend their processes to customers, partners, and other groups within
the organization. However, with this greater reach come greater
challenges to protect data and ensure users’ privacy across multiple
domains and devices. WSO2 addresses these challenges with the launch of
WSO2 Identity Server 4.5 for authentication and identity management
across cloud, mobile and Web applications.
The latest release of the award-winning WSO2
Identity Server adds powerful new capabilities for user provisioning
and management, including:
“Collectively, the cloud, mobile, APIs, social media, and open source
are enabling enterprises to create new connections across employees,
customers and partners. Along with new business models, this is also
bringing the need for more comprehensive identity management across the
diverse participants in these connected enterprises,” said Dr. Sanjiva
Weerawarana, WSO2 founder and CEO. “WSO2 Identity Server 4.5 delivers on
this demand by combining robust, centralized management with flexible
models for provisioning in traditional, cloud and mobile deployments and
by facilitating authentication and authorization no matter where or how
users choose to access applications and services.”
Robust Identity Management On-premises and in the Cloud
Version 4.5 builds on the proven performance of WSO2 Identity Server,
the enterprise-ready, 100% open source, lean, component-based software,
which has been in production in Global 1000 enterprises since 2009.
WSO2 Identity Server enables enterprise architects and developers to
improve the user’s experience by reducing identity provisioning time,
guaranteeing secure online interactions, and delivering a reduced single
sign-on (SSO) environment. It also decreases the burden of identity
management and entitlement management by including role-based access
control, attribute-based access control, fine-grain policy-based access
control, and SSO bridging. Featuring full native multi-tenancy, WSO2
Identity Server can run on servers, in a private cloud, public cloud or
hybrid cloud environment—all from the same software.
