In addition to the company's enterprise single sign-on solution, Passlogix offers a variety of cloud security solutions.
Secure sign-on specialist Passlogix announced its enterprise
single sign-on solution v-GO Single Sign-On, designed to
leverage the benefits of cloud-based applications without losing
control over information security or adding another password for end
users to manage.
V-Go SSO is aimed at securely extending single sign-on
to SAAS applications without requiring integration of the
authentication infrastructure with the SAAS vendor's or cloud host's
As with in-house applications, the use of v-Go's single sign-on
technology with cloud-based applications offers features such as user
convenience, regulatory compliance and the ability to safeguard
enterprise information assets against attackers. The solution allows
businesses to prevent unauthorized access by delivering single sign-on
functionality to cloud applications via Passlogix's patented technology
without end users knowing their passwords, as well as strengthening
passwords to authenticate to all applications by introducing
application password selection policies.
The solution also gives organizations the ability to require user
re-authentication to select applications, either via re-entry of the
user's Windows logon password or with a strong authentication device
such as a smart card, token or biometric, to add a second form of
authentication to the application password automatically entered by
v-Go. In addition, businesses can extend strong authentication to
cloud/SaaS-based and other applications that cannot natively integrate
with authentication devices, without requiring modification or
customization of the application.
"Cloud-based applications like Salesforce.com and NetSuite are clearly
changing the IT landscape, yet enterprises cannot easily extend their
usual access controls to thwart unauthorized access to the data they
contain. Regardless of the password rules or other protections imposed
for applications inside the corporate firewall, those that are outside
the firewall remain highly vulnerable," said Matt Berzinski, director
of product management of Passlogix. "v-Go SSO makes it possible to
enforce the same security standards to all applications across the
board to protect against data compromise as well as regulatory
v-Go Single Sign-On enables end users to access any Windows, Web,
Citrix or mainframe application with a single Windows logon by
automating username and password entry for each account. It also
provides single sign-on to shared workstations, enhanced authentication
to applications without the need for custom integration, and on-demand
functionality that enables remote, mobile and temporary users to gain
access to v-GO SSO's single sign-on capabilities. In addition, v-GO SSO
provides account usage information captured during application logins.
Businesses can also create a full audit trail of all application
access, including SaaS-based accounts, to provide forensics support in
the event of a security breach. This is accomplished through v-GO
report logs that document all access events and details, including user
ID, date and time. Also designed to simplify and secure user access to
enterprise resources the v-Go Shared Accounts Manager, allowes
administrator and other shared account IDs to be managed under the same
infrastructure as conventional credentials.
The company's v-Go Universal Authentication Manager enables Microsoft
Windows to accept any type of strong authentication device from any
vendor, while v-Go Provisioning Manager automates single sign-on
provisioning and v-Go Self-Service Password Reset provides an automated
reset of forgotten Windows passwords.
