GlobalSign Showcases Expanded Mobile Authentication Support in Its Identity Services Platforms at RSA Conference 2015

Enabling Organizations to Easily Deploy and Manage Identity for Everything™ With OAuth 2.0 for IAM, AirWatch Integration, Managed PKI and High-Availability CA Services

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 20, 2015) - RSA CONFERENCE 2015, BOOTH #626 -- GMO GlobalSign (www.globalsign.com), a leading provider of identity services for online transactions, and the security division of Tokyo-based GMO Internet Group, is showcasing its expanded mobile authentication solutions, including OAuth 2.0 and identity and access management (IAM) solutions, and new AirWatch Enterprise Mobilility Management (EMM) integration at the RSA Conference 2015, opening today. 

GlobalSign's IAM and Managed PKI identity services platforms dramatically streamline the deployment, access and lifecycle management of strongly authenticated identities for mobile, as well as traditional computing platforms and connected devices. Additionally, GlobalSign's highly-scalable and high-availability CA and authentication platforms further support the demands of the Internet of Everything (IoE), where everything needs a trusted -- and manageable -- identity.

The proliferation of mobile devices is increasingly driving the need for strong authentication as more high-value transactions are taking place online, and more employees are accessing corporate resources using their own devices. These new GlobalSign identity solutions allow IT organizations to seamlessly deploy stronger security through the use of digital (PKI) certificates, as well as other forms of authentication, while making it easier and more convenient for the user to access online services and applications.

"GlobalSign is committed to being the provider of Identity for Everything™ that simplifies deployment, reduces cost and enables the strongest digital identities and authentication methods for anyone -- and anything -- online," states Joan Lockhart, CMO at GlobalSign. "With the expanded set of mobile authentication solutions we're showcasing at RSA today, and our proven expertise in high-availability, cloud-based CA services, GlobalSign can help every type of organization to more efficiently manage their digital identities and access control." 

Expanded mobile authentication support, demonstrated at the RSA Conference 2015, includes:

  • Extended support for OAuth 2.0, one of the primary protocols behind secure identities on mobile devices, is now available in GlobalSign's IAM solution suite, including the newly released GlobalSign IAM-Easy™ platform. With OAuth 2.0, developers of mobile apps, desktop applications and device manufacturers can implement one of the most popular authorization standards into their products. Support of OAuth 2.0 adds authentication functionality for mobile applications to the existing 20+ supported authentication methods provided by GlobalSign IAM-Easy and SSO Authorization Server for more secure transactions.

  • GlobalSign's newest mobile authentication solution, which is the result of its integration with the AirWatch EMM platform, enables IT organizations to automatically provision digital identities on mobile devices without involving the end user -- providing authenticated access to email, Wi-Fi networks and VPNs -- along with AirWatch EMM features that simplify lifecycle management, including certificate issuance, renewal and/or revocation -- either individually or in bulk. (See related press release issued today).

  • GlobalSign will also showcase its Auto Enrollment Gateway (AEG) platform that integrates with Active Directory, allowing enterprises to seamlessly provision PKI certificates for user, machine and device authentication, including domain-connected Windows mobile devices.

The GlobalSign family of identity services is already helping some of the world's most innovative corporations, telecom providers, government agencies and manufacturers to provide seamless provisioning of strong authentication to users, mobile and fixed devices, a superior end-user experience and rapid deployment of IAM, MDM and PKI solutions to manage identities and access. 

GlobalSign is demonstrating its new mobile and identity services capabilities at this week's RSA Conference 2015, held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, April 20-23 in booth #626. For more information on GlobalSign's identity services platforms, visit www.globalsign.com.
