In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
• Cloud-based Identity and Access Management as a Service (IDaaS)
As a cloud-based IDaaS, Kaseya AuthAnvil on demand enables customers to gain authenticated and secure access to both on-premise and cloud applications from virtually any device.
Where most authentication deployments fail due to poor employee adoption, Kaseya AuthAnvil’s easy and flexible three step on-boarding process helps accelerate and increase user adoption.
• Efficient password management
IT managers using Kaseya AuthAnvil on demand can provision and de-provision users with just a few clicks, effectively controlling access to the applications, sites, and systems to which the passwords are linked. Furthermore, the technology can change user passwords without users knowing or needing to know; users can still access sites through their portal making the act of remembering a password a thing of the past.
Kaseya AuthAnvil protects company data by ensuring that only authorized users are given secure access to sensitive applications and information, all the while making password management easier and more efficient. The popular technology integrates single sign-on, password management, multi-factor authentication, and automated user provisioning into a single, comprehensive solution.
The software empowers customers to gain authenticated and secure access to both on-premise and cloud applications from virtually any device. Businesses utilizing Kaseya AuthAnvil can seamlessly manage their identity and access management (IAM) needs in a standard and consistent fashion. Passwords are stored in a centralized location and can be accessed remotely to manage employee logins.
A common cause of password-related breaches often stem from insider threats due to dissatisfied, or even careless employees. Kaseya AuthAnvil addresses this problem by immediately terminating access for former employees, reducing forgotten password- related incidents and making it easier for end users to securely login to corporate resources, applications and websites.
With the latest release of Kaseya AuthAnvil on demand, announced in November 2016, users are now able to easily and securely access any application, including Office 365, Dropbox, SalesForce, and ZenDesk. The solution’s patented, extendable MFA engine also allows organizations to build workflows for login procedures to new websites and applications with the flexibility to support additional methods such as biometrics and smart cards, allowing IT to continue to provide value.
Kaseya AuthAnvil on demand also leverages Universal Directory’s cloud-based directory service to allow for a single source of truth when it comes to providing attribute-based identity management to staff and customers. This paves the way for enterprise-class federated access to cloud applications at any scale, even when customer networks are not online or available on the Internet. For businesses concerned with compliance, detailed reports on password usage and status provide added value.
