The Idaptive Next-Gen Access (NGA) Cloud is the only industry-recognized identity and access management solution that unifies single sign-on, multi-factor authentication, lifecycle management, and endpoint management services. With the Idaptive platform, organizations can simplify access management with single sign-on, automate the on-boarding and off-boarding processes, and secure devices accessing internal networks.

The platform also includes data intelligence-driven multi-factor authentication that further secures apps, VPNs, and workstations. Powered by machine learning, the Idaptive Next-Gen Access Cloud not only takes into consideration the context of each access attempt, but also creates a baseline profile for each user, leveraging their own unique set of contextual attributes such as location, device, network, and time of the access request. This enables companies to analyze access requests against historical patterns, assign risk scores to each access attempt, and create dynamic access policies that are triggered when anomalous behavior is detected in real-time.

Over the last year, Idaptive has partnered with key players in the security and lifecycle management industries to improve employee productivity, enhance customer and partner experiences, and reduce the risk of compromised credentials – the primary cause of security breaches. Partners include Palo Alto Networks, Workday, and ServiceNow. Idaptive also announced integrations with popular cybersecurity products like Yubico’s Yubikey for additional ways to guarantee convenient, but secure access to apps and services.

Finally, Analysts agree that the NGA Cloud is an industry-leading technology. In 2019, Gartner recognized Idaptive as a “Visionary” in its Magic Quadrant for Access Management, and Forrester Research named Idaptive as one of only two “Leaders” in its Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) Wave report.

How we are different

AI-Powered Identity: The Idaptive Next-Gen Access Cloud platform is powered by artificial intelligence and can operate without having to manually define, model, and manage complex and reactive rules or policy configurations. It leverages unsupervised machine learning algorithms to develop user behavior models and continuously update them with new data and access events. These models can distinguish between users' typical and anomalous behavior patterns in real-time and assign risk scores to each access event. This enables customers to prevent breaches with a few dynamic, risk-based authentication policies that get triggered when risky behavior or malicious access attempts are identified.

Simplifying the IAM Lifecycle: While many IAM solutions provide single sign-on or multi-factor authentication capabilities, the Idaptive Next-Gen Access Cloud also allows companies to manage, automate, and govern the complex network of identities for people, devices, and systems. For example, with Idaptive, organizations can automate the on-boarding and off-boarding processes to streamline access provisioning and improve the management of entitlements and licenses. This enables companies to drastically reduce IT workload and allows IT departments to focus on important strategic and security initiatives.

Endpoint and Mobile Management Capabilities: Idaptive has recognized that while the number of security incidents involving mobile devices has steadily increased over the years, companies are not protecting their mobile assets as well as they do other systems. One in three organizations admitted to experiencing a compromise due to a mobile device, according to a recent study by Verizon. The Idaptive Device Security Management service, a key part of the Next-Gen Access Cloud platform, enables customers to secure endpoints used to access corporate resources with centralized policy management, providing device visibility, insights, and consistent security controls for iOS and Android as well as macOS and Windows devices.
