SecureAuth Delivers More Secure Access to Amazon Web Services

SecureAuth IdP Enables Fewer Usernames and Passwords While Providing More Protection to Enterprises; Demos Solution at RSA Conference Booth 315

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 20, 2014) - SecureAuth, a leading provider of 2-Factor Access Control, today announced that its award-winning SecureAuth IdP solution enables enterprises to have more secure, convenient access to Amazon Web Services (AWS) consoles. SecureAuth IdP uses over 20 different authentication methods to validate an identity, pushes the information to the logging database, and then asserts the identity directly to AWS.

"Enterprises can now regulate who has access to Amazon Web Services and validate those users' identities," stated Garret Grajek, Chief Technology Officer at SecureAuth. "SecureAuth allows IT to manipulate the authentication workflow at the touch of a button. The end result is fewer usernames and passwords for users to remember, and a more secure enterprise."

"The benefit of Amazon's cloud service is there is no cumbersome hardware to manage; everything that is needed to host elaborate web, data, and application needs is accessible through the Amazon administrator dashboard," commented Craig Lund, Chief Executive Officer at SecureAuth. "The issue with this model is that the admin console uses a separate data store that is not under enterprise control. Not only is this less secure than on-premise directories, but it also requires replication of administrator credentials and synchronization that can be ineffective and time consuming. SecureAuth IdP uniquely ties to the enterprise-held directories and extracts required information for authentication, without storing any data."

Companies can employ their same credentials that are already in place and controlled on-premise; and the two-factor access and SSO into AWS provides safe and expedient access to necessary applications without increasing the risk of attack or overhead costs.
