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.
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.
This page can be customised to perform whatever form of Swivel authentication that you think is appropriate for access to the cloud services you use.
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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
