Secure Cloud Access

The Cloud challenge

Many companies are choosing to move their data into the cloud encouraged by reduced costs, better performance, increased efficiency and reliability – but how can they make the transition and keep their data secure?

Why Store Data in the Cloud?

It’s quite simple really, moving to the cloud provides, technological, organisational and commercial benefits for many organisations.

  • Accessibility – data is stored in the cloud on highly resilient platforms which means data is more readily available at anytime and anywhere
  • Efficiency – by allowing your data storage infrastructure to be managed externally enterprises are free to focus on their core business
  • Cost Effective – the subscription model offered by most providers removes the need for upfront capital expenditure
  • Security – Many Cloud services provide their own username and password access controls, and some provide an independent 2FA option.

The Solution

Moving to the Cloud can benefit organisations in many ways, top ones include: no upfront investment, stability and ease of use.  However it comes with an important security implication, an expanding network perimeter. Traditionally gaining access to corporate data meant access via a VPN, VDI or potentially a locally hosted application.

The Cloud influences the location and provides dynamic access. Migrating to the Cloud changes when a service is available for access, by whom and from what device. With a wider virtual perimeter and all access taking place remotely, it becomes even more important that access controls are both strong and unified.

Access anytime and anywhere

We want you to able to access your data from whenever and wherever you choose, not potential hackers. Implementing a one-size fits all approach can have major repercussions for an enterprise.

Keep control of your data

Outsourcing services, means outsourcing where your data is held, which can lead to a loss of control. Most Cloud applications come with basic username-password based authentication but having data stored in the cloud poses an additional level of risk that requires an extra layer of data security.

Disjointed identity and access

Generally most enterprises will use more than one Cloud service, and often combined with local applications too. Maintaining a single Identity and authentication approach over such a complex environment is a challenging task.

Using our unified approach for access means that our adaptive, intelligent authentication is invoked, and if a user is not required to authenticate they won’t be challenged. The user experience becomes frictionless. Easy access for the user, and productivity gains for the company.

AuthControl Cloud, our highly flexible Authentication engine. It has has a range of modern authentication factors for proving on OTC, including our unique image based authentication and One-Touch PUSH where users can authenticate at the click of a button, no codes required.

AuthControl Cloud

Adaptive Authentication, works with a pre-defined set of rules to monitor user behaviour and extra validation is only demanded when risks dictate; data is protected but with no inconvenience to users or your organisation.

Adaptive Authentication

Unified Sign-on, simplifies administration and your users’ lives, we provide a seamless and unified approach to authentication. All users go through a single authentication portal to access all their remote applications.

Manage don’t mitigate

By taking a strategic and intelligent approach to user authentication, enterprises can manage the security risks associated with access to cloud data without cancelling out the benefits.
