The OptimalCloud is a complete cloud federation and single sign-on solution that provides multi-factor authentication and authorization from any data store. There are several deployment scenarios that make The OptimalCloud the perfect fit for your organization’s identity management needs.
Federated Broker Model
This allows for seamless and secure single sign-on to all of your applications while all of your identity data remains on-premise. Even though authentication requests are sent from the cloud, with The OptimalCloud, synchronization of your identity data to the cloud is not required. This means your identity data remains under your control and behind your firewalls. This scenario is good for organizations who store all of their existing identities on-premise and who already have the expert personnel and time to continue managing these directories.
Cloud Identity Model
The OptimalCloud can be deployed using a Cloud Identity Mode which means your identities are hosted in your own private cloud. With this scenario, you no longer have to deal with the headaches of managing your own identities – no more maintaining tedious LDAP directories – with The OptimalCloud, you can get out of the authentication business while our experts manage it all for you. This scenario is ideal for organizations who used to maintain an external directory for vendors/partners and no longer want to manage these identities in an on premise directory. With The OptimalCloud, you can move those directories to the cloud while outsourcing the management to a trusted service provider complete with self-service identity management tools and full identity life cycle management.
The OptimalCloud can be deployed as a Hybrid Model which is designed to meet the unique needs of complex, multi-level organizations. This scenario allows us to federate to existing on-premise directories, cloud hosted directories as well as federate to other organizations. The greatest benefit for your organization is there are no major changes required to your infrastructure – not only that but your federated customers get the benefit of single sign-on into your applications using their existing login credentials. This scenario is ideal for complex organizations who need to provide a mix of cloud hosted, on premise and federated relationships. As you can see, The OptimalCloud offers any deployment scenario needed to provide a complete custom identity management solution that meets the unique needs of your organization.
