Designed to affordably scale as a business grows, new tiered offering of the OptimalCloud IAM platform enhances customer usability, strengthens security and reduces I.T. service requests.

Tampa, FL, March 31, 2021 – Optimal IdM, a leading provider of Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions, today announced new tiered offerings of the award winning OptimalCloud™ platform. The new multi-tenant, cloud-based offerings are designed for small and mid-sized businesses and will be available beginning March 31, 2021 at https://signup.theoptimalcloud.com/.

The new offerings tap the full power of the OptimalCloud platform, used by many Fortune 500 companies, giving SMBs access to identity access management features like SSO, MFA, Universal Directory, Lifecycle Management, Delegated Administration and Adaptive Authentication/Authorization. The OptimalCloud modular pricing now provides three different feature-rich plans giving customers ability to scale features in relation to their applications or user needs. Packages include Silver and Gold plans starting at just two dollars per user, per month. Complete pricing information can be found at www.optimalidm.com/pricing.

“Growing Optimal IdM over the years has been exciting, but to offer economical and robust feature plans to companies who may not be able to afford a full Identity Access Management solution has been a long-standing goal of ours,” said Larry Aucoin, Managing Partner and CTO of Optimal IdM. He continued, “It has always been our mission to help businesses strengthen their security posture with our enterprise grade technologies and experience.”

When it comes to security, more than half of all cyberattacks are committed against small-to-midsized businesses and 60 percent of them go out of business within six months of falling victim to a data breach or hack. So, it’s critical for SMBs to have access to easy-to-use, affordable, and effective security tools beginning with identity access management solutions.

The OptimalCloud balances security and usability for workforce and consumer clients who want easily integrated features, like SSO, to provide frictionless access to their local and online accounts — including email, project management, and customer relationship management software — without being burdened with complex passwords and login processes. In addition, the OptimalCloud helps reduce routine service requests, like password resets, that strain I.T. staffing resources.

With the OptimalCloud, businesses who need customer or workforce access management can mitigate risk when connecting to applications and systems and also provide a positive user experience while maintaining secure access to all the views and control’s necessary for uninterrupted day-to-day operations. Key features and benefits of the OptimalCloud include:

  • Affordable financial entry point for small and mid-sized businesses.
  • Single-Sign On (SSO) to improve workforce and consumer user experience by allowing seamless access to all systems and applications, including third-party apps.
  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA) options, including behavioral biometric authentication which adds another level of network security.
  • Optimal Authenticator™ App for mobile devices making passwordless MFA easy with fingerprint or facial recognition.
  • More than eleven thousand application integrations available, simplifying set up and configuration.
  • 30-day free trial.
  • 24 x 7 x 365 support.
  • Guaranteed 99.9% uptime with a credit if not met.
