Every cloud has a Swivel lining
As cloud computing continues to expand and revolutionise business, the need to consider security around cloud applications is evermore paramount. Even the largest corporations including MasterCard, RSA and Sony have had difficulty defending themselves against targeted data attacks from ‘hacktivist’ groups such as Anonymous and Lulzsec. The importance of ensuring sensitive corporate data is kept secure has never been more clearly illustrated; getting it wrong can result in significant reputational and financial losses.
We have developed a range of cloud options, including integration with Office 365, Salesforce.com and Google Docs, ensuring the same peace of mind when it comes to secure access to cloud services.
These solutions adopt the “federation model” whereby when a user requests access to a cloud application they are re-directed to a separate authentication page. without even knowing.
This authentication page can be customised to perform whatever form of Swivel authentication you think is appropriate for access to the cloud services you use. Our authentication platform allows cloud access using a wide variety of devices, including two factor authentication via mobile app, SMS, OATH token and telephony and stronger authentication via intregrated in-browser imagery.
Once the user has authenticated on this page they are issued with an assertion ( a bit like a cookie) that the cloud service can then use as confirmation that the user is who they claim to be and then allow them access.
As you use Swivel to determine who can access your cloud services and how, this means you retain complete control over user access whilst still enjoying the benefits of the cloud. The best of both worlds.
We also have solutions for SAML and for ADFS.
We have a number of integration guides, available on our knowledgebase that explain the steps required for cloud integration.
Please contact email@example.com to discuss specific requirements. If you are a cloud service provider and would like to add Swivel support to your products, we will be happy to discuss working with you to develop a solution.
A key, and unique feature, of our authentication platform is our patented one-time-code extraction protocol PINsafe. PINsafe combines the use of registered PINs with random 10 digit security strings that are sent to you either by browser, mobile app, SMS and telephone either on demand or in advance. You then combine these in your head to work out your unique one-time access codes, putting you at the heart of the strong multi-factor authentication process. Learn More
