Omada Launches New Partnership With US-based Optimal IdM to Offer Streamlined Federation & Identity Governance and Administration (IGA)
Omada, a market leader in IT security solutions and services for identity management and access governance, today announced a new partnership with leading provider of access management solutions, US-based Optimal IdM.
Working together in joint customer projects, Omada and Optimal IdM will leverage identity data to offer a solution that improves a user’s risk profile, while also streamlining authentication and authorization.
Omada’s Identity Governance & Administration (IGA) solution, Omada Identity Suite, will work in combination with Optimal IdM’s OptimalCloud™ to provide customers with a secure, federated, end-to-end offering.
On top of a fully featured process framework, the Omada Identity Suite (OIS) takes a wholistic approach to access control, helping customers run their business effectively with an all-in-one identity management and access governance solution that generates a clear overview of users’ access rights to data and resources that outlines which access they have, and how, when and why they received it.
The Omada Identity Suite empowers organizations to manage identities across heterogeneous IT-systems and is acclaimed for its business-centric approach, high adaptability and configurability, reducing the need for custom development and decreasing the deployment time to achieve a quick ROI.
The OptimalCloud provides universal single-sign-on (SSO), Federation Brokering, MFA Services, authorization enforcement, audit and reporting services, and can also be combined with the power of Optimal IdM’s Virtual Directory to provide a single view of hundreds of Active Directory forests, LDAP directories as well as other data repositories like SQL, Oracle and many others.
Virtual Identity Server (VIS) seamlessly integrates with Microsoft applications including SharePoint, Office 365 as well as on-premise legacy applications, and is currently integrated with more than 5,000 applications that are being added to every day.
Veronika Westerlund, Omada’s Global VP of Channels & Alliances says that she is excited about the partnership and its ability to offer customers a unique solution to a multitude of problems.
“Our collaboration with Optimal IdM creates a solid Go-To-Market Partnership that utilizes the Omada Identity Suite with Optimal IdM’s solutions to enable organizations to ensure authenticated and authorized access to systems, as well as a centrally managed and governed platform that ensures continuous governance for the complete lifecycle of all identities within business workflows,” Veronika says.
“We are very excited about this Value-Add Partnership, and its ability to help Optimal IdM customers strengthen and connect their future IGA deployments to our best practice IdentityPROCESS+ framework.”
Chris Curcio, VP of Channel Sales and Partnerships at Optimal IdM says he is also excited about the partnership because as well as each having great technical offerings, both companies are very customer-centric.
"Omada is exactly what we were looking for in an IGA partner,” Chris says.
“Optimal IdM provides a fully managed service offering, and Omada and their Omada Identity Suite, with their choice of on-premises, cloud-based or hybrid options, consistently get high praise for their product, with excellent customer satisfaction results. Our combined effort not only provides all the capabilities needed in an entire identity solution, but also some of the happiest and most successful customers.”
