09.23.2015 - Optimal IdM to Release TOTP in The OptimalCloud

TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 23, 2015 — Optimal IdM will be showcasing their cloud federation and single sign-on solution, The OptimalCloud and talking about their upcoming release of Time-based One-time Password (TOTP) support in front of more than a thousand identity management representatives as a sponsor at the Global Identity Summit this week in Tampa, Florida.  In addition to its cloud Identity as a Service (IDaaS) solution, Optimal IdM representatives will be highlighting the use cases for its on premise solutions such as its flagship product the Virtual Identity Server which is an LDAP Virtual Directory. TOTP is an algorithm that generates a one-time password based on a shared secret key and current time stamp that is the foundation of OATH and commonly used for two-factor authentication systems and cloud applications. Time-based one-time passwords are appealing because they provide a higher level of security, requiring a traditional static password and a TOTP which changes every 30 to 60 seconds, making it extremely resistant to attacks and security breaches. Optimal IdM, is currently in the process of building support for TOTP into its cloud federation and single sign-on solution, The OptimalCloud which has recently won several large contracts over competitors such as Okta, Ping and OneLogin. There are several key factors that consistently keep The OptimalCloud ahead of the competition. First, whereas most of the competition offers little beyond single sign-on, The OptimalCloud is a complete identity management solution with delegated administration and workflow capabilities that can be customized to meet the specific needs of its clients via Optimal IdM’s concierge, “zero-config” service. Secondly, The OptimalCloud offers a private, secure and dedicated cloud which is essential for meeting government and corporate security and compliance restrictions. Further to that, The OptimalCloud’s built-in cloud reporting system provides real time historical audit record of all activity including detailed granular reporting which is stored in a dedicated private database. Lastly, The OptimalCloud is billed as an affordable, flat monthly fee which is a perfect fit with government budgetary and approval requirements.
