News : Radiant Logic Announces CFS 3.0
United States, May 13, 2014--Radiant Logic, a provider of a federated identity and context service based on virtualization, announces at Microsoft TechEd in Houston, the Cloud Federation Service (CFS), a multi-tenant "on-premises IdP" for large enterprises, is certified as a third-party SSO provider for Microsoft cloud services including Microsoft Azure and Office 365. RadiantOne CFS is a Security Token Service (STS) that enables enterprises to secure access to cloud-based applications—even when identities are scattered across disparate authentication sources beyond just Active Directory.
"The majority of our customers who are trying to provide SSO to cloud applications have users stored in many places, such as a Sun/Oracle directories or SQL databases," said Michel Prompt, CEO at Radiant Logic. "CFS extends access to Azure and Office 356 making it easier for large enterprises dealing with multiple identity sources beyond just Active Directory. Coupled with our virtualization layer, CFS supports the kind of federation today’s organizations need."
While Microsoft ADFS can federate identities across multiple Active Directory forests and domains, CFS acts as a complementary service, going above and beyond. CFS integrates with ADFS, and extends user accounts by providing additional attributes from other data sources for more robust authorization.
By turning disparate, fragmented identity infrastructures into one logical identity provider, CFS simplifies the process of federation and single sign-on for cloud applications. CFS identifies users, routes and authenticates against the local sources, and collects attributes from multiple data stores to build security tokens that meet the unique needs of each Service Provider (SP) or Relying Party (RP).
With CFS, enterprises can build a secure federated infrastructure, offering single access point that connects all internal identity and authentication sources to the growing world of cloud applications.
