Benefits of The OptimalCloud

Reduced IT Costs

The OptimalCloud integrates with our Virtual Identity Server to provide authentication and authorization from any data store (LDAP, Active Directory, database, etc.). and as a private, federated cloud broker, it increases the value of your existing Microsoft environment:

  • VIS leverages the existing investment in Microsoft technology, extending it with increased functionality.
  • VIS is developed in .NET technology and is designed to seamless integrate with your Microsoft environment.
  • VIS is a platform that continues to grow with an organization’s needs.
  • VIS has proven solutions for Microsoft applications such as SharePoint and MIIS/ILM.

Eliminate Deployment Barriers

One of the key benefits of using the OptimalCloud IDaaS product is scalability. OptimalCloud scales horizontally or vertically to meet the needs of enterprise deployments. With VIS, it has built-in connection pooling and full support for failover and load balancers. It also has other beneficial features:

  • VIS can be placed behind a load balancer (hardware or software) to provide robust failover/redundancy for applications connecting to VIS.
  • VIS scales either horizontally or vertically to meet the demanding needs of enterprise deployments.
  • VIS offers robust caching options, allowing you to cache objects on a connection by connection basis or even object class basis. Objects can have a cache size limit and a time limit or both.

Meet Audit & Compliance Initiatives

The OptimalCloud provides complete IDaaS functionality that can help you answer questions such as:

  • Who has logged in and when?
  • What changes were made to data and when?
  • Who was added to the Administrators group today?
  • What changes did “Bob” make?

There is no need to waste time consolidating data.

The OptimalCloud can instantly authenticate and surface identity data from multiple-forests and any identity stores setting Optimal IdM above most traditional IDaaS providers.

Directory Integration

The OptimalCloud integrates with our Virtual Identity Server to provide authentication and authorization from any data store (LDAP, Active Directory, database, etc.). With it, there is no need to waste time consolidating data — The OptimalCloud can instantly authenticate and surface identity data from any Active Directory source, including multi-forest databases and identity stores. In fact, some of our customers have hundreds of Active Directory forests. We can even provide a blended merged view of a user with data coming from multiple data sources.

Cloud Directory

The OptimalCloud also includes our cloud-based virtual directory. The cloud directory is a great place to host your external identities such as customers or partners. You no longer need to manage an on-premise directory for these users. Using the web portal, you can easily manage the users, groups, entitlements and more from one easy-to-use interface.

Quick & Easy Deployment

The OptimalCloud is a quick and easy deployment. We provide complete white glove service, creating the private cloud tenant and installing the on premise software as well.  Your private cloud in days, not months.

Real-Time Sync

If you are in hybrid mode, The OptimalCloud LDAP service will instantly and securely synch new users to the cloud that are created on-premise. As changes occur to the on-premise users and groups, these changes are synched as well.  This ensures the OptimalCloud is always up to date.

User Management

From our custom entitlements engine to self-service administration, the OptimalCloud offers administrators a complete user management system that includes a robust Delegated Administrative Identity Management system.

Broker Mode

We provide the simple and seamless SSO without the need to synch. Unlike other cloud SSO solutions, we don’t require you to synchronize your users to the cloud.

Compliance & Reporting

With the OptimalCloud data is auditable and trackable. This provides you with a complete centralized audit trail of all user/group management and application activity. The OptimalCloud includes dozens of reports that provide both high-level dashboard metrics as well as detailed audit reports.

centralized audit trailCentralized Audit Trail 

The OptimalCloud tracks and audits all activity. For example, we track failed and successful authentications, all SSO events, all application access, etc.  You can easily see who authenticated, when and to what application.  Reports can be easily filtered to provide the exact data you are looking for.  For example, you can run a report for a given user over the past 30 days, to see exactly what that user has done.

Custom Reports

The standard reports included allow you to slice and dice the information the way you want it.  Want a pie chart instead of a bar chart?  Easy, just select it from the menu.  Want to drill into a specific application or user?  Easy, just filter it using drop down menus.

Cloud Reports 

The OptimalCloud includes dozens of reports, already built and ready to run.  There are dashboard reports that present high level metrics such as application usage over time, or authentication failures over a period of time.  The data is real-time, so you can use the reports to monitor current activity or use for auditing past usage.

exporting data

Export the Data

The OptimalCloud’s reporting system even gives you the capability to export the data to CSV, Excel, PDF, an image, or even HTML. You can use this export for use as an audit back up or even importing into another log system. 

Any Device

All of the reports are designed to work on any device, so whether you want to review a report on your laptop browser or with your tablet or smart phone. Get the report you want now, on any device.
