We’re delighted that our cloud-based Identity and Authentication Management Service (IDAMS) has been shortlisted for this year’s Computing Vendor Excellence Awards in the Identity and Access Management category. We’ve already implemented a service based on IDAMS to a government Agency, providing secure single sign-in to support mobile and remote working.
The award recognises solutions which help IT teams manage the growing complexity of assuring user identity and controlling their access to multiple applications from multiple devices. The judging criteria included effectiveness, scalability and whether the solution provided a seamless end user experience. Clearly Fordway's IDAMS ticked all of those boxes!
Fordway IDAMS is a cloud-based user identity authentication service which provides an authoritative source of identity to authenticate against corporate, PSN, web, cloud and hosted systems. It offers pre-configured connectors for over 20 applications and custom connectors can be developed, enabling it to be configured to authenticate to almost any other system. There is also a self-service portal where users or administration staff can provision and update requirements for themselves, with custom authentication and provisioning workflows defined to allow staff and partners secure access to services.
The award winners are announced on 1st July 2016.
