Azure Active Directory vs OneLogin in our news:
2021. One Identity has acquired OneLogin, a rival to Okta and Ping Identity
More consolidation is afoot in the world of cybersecurity, specifically around services to help organizations manage identity and access. Today, One Identity — which provides tools for managing “zero trust” access to systems, as well as running log management and other governance services for enterprises — announced that it has acquired OneLogin, a rival to companies like Okta, Ping and others in the area of secure sign-on services for end users. OneLogin has some 5,500 customers, including the likes of Airbus, Stitch Fix, the AAA and Pandora.
2021. Microsoft acquires access management startup CloudKnox
Microsoft has acquired identity and access management (IAM) startup CloudKnox Security. CloudKnox helps organizations enforce least-privilege principles to reduce risk and help prevent security breaches. The company’s activity-based authorization service will equip Azure Active Directory customers with granular visibility, continuous monitoring and automated remediation for hybrid and multi-cloud permissions. In addition to Azure Active Directory, the company also plans to integrate CloudKnox with its other cloud security services, including 365 Defender, Azure Defender and Azure Sentinel. Microsoft also recently acquired IoT security startups CyberX and Refirm Labs as it moved to beef up its security portfolio.
2017. OneLogin brings some smarts to multi-factor authentication
Multi-factor authentication service OneLogin rolled out a new version of its mobile app that uses machine learning to determine your typical usage patterns and only asks you for a second factor when it determines that it’s absolutely necessary. Most MFA algorithms are rather rigid. If you’re on the network at work, you get asked for a password. If you’re not, you get asked for a second factor, but he says, it should be much more subtle than that, understanding how users access the network. The latest version of OneLogin OTP is designed to fix that. If you log in regularly from your home on the same laptop, after several times the system will learn that this is a common location and device, and you will be allowed onto the network without a second factor.
2016. OneLogin acquires Sphere Secure Workspace to gain mobile management
Cloud identity management provider OneLogin has acquired Sphere Secure Workspace to add mobile device management to their identity-driven security model. Sphere provides a container approach to mobile security where your work content is separated from your personal content inside a virtual container on a single device. This is not a new approach by any means, but it gives OneLogin entree into the light-weight mobile device management space. With Sphere, the company simply blows away the container when an employee leaves a company or loses a device, and the person’s other content remains intact. It gives the employee access to work content in a more secure way with a single log-in, while protecting the personal content.
2011. VMWare launches single sign-on service
As known, the main problems with SaaS-apps arise not with users, but with IT administrators, because they are losing control over what's happening. Because of this, they resist the SaaS implementation, claiming in particular, that they can't control authentication data across multiple SaaS services. To solve this problems, the new class of services appeared - SSO (Single Sign-on services). We have already reviewed one of them - OneLogin. There are some others, but all of them are semi-startups, which can't fully satisfy the IT staff. And finally there is a solution from the solid company - VMware Horizon App Manager.
2010. OneLogin - Single sign-on for SaaS apps
Thanks to SaaS technology, a large number of business applications have appeared. Now companies can use multiple applications from different vendors (not just from Microsoft). But along with the wide variety of applications the problems of their integration and a single sign-on have come. Various platforms, marketplaces and SaaS associations are intended to solve these problems: Force.com, Intuit Partner Program, Google Apps Marketplace. OneLogin also tries to solve the single sign-on problem in simple and ingenious way. It is the centrally-administered username / password database + browser plugin, which makes working with a large number of SaaS applications very convenient.
