Gemalto launches Identity-as-a-Service solution for businesses

Zafar Anjum | Dec. 10, 2013
Gemalto's CloudEntr enables cost-effective and speedy deployment of advanced web-based strong authentication for businesses looking to manage employees' access identities.

Gemalto has introduced CloudEntr, a new service aimed at helping enterprises manage user identities while enabling secure single-sign-on (SSO) access to web-based applications, the digital security company announced on 6 December.

CloudEntr allows users to gain convenient access to all their web-based applications by authenticating just once with a unique log-in credential.

With CloudEntr businesses are also able to smoothly transition from weak

User-selected passwords to stronger protection, through complex passwords that don't need to be remembered or two-factor authentication capabilities, including mobile one-time-passwords (OTP), the security company said in a statement.

"CloudEntr enables businesses to better manage how employees are accessing web-based business applications for a more efficient IT management, as well as offering users a multi-channel and convenient way to benefit from password best-practices," said François Lasnier, Senior Vice President of Identity and Access. "This new IDaaS offer from Gemalto capitalizes on more than 30 years of experience in digital security, and our long-standing history of enabling trusted services for enterprises and governments."

CloudEntr is available immediately for free trial.
