ROUND ROCK, TX: Dell announces the release of Dell One Identity Cloud Access Manager 8.0, which leverages Dell’s new Security Analytics Engine to give organizations control of web-based applications and OpenID Connect-compliant mobile application access activities within the organization.

With this enhanced control security is accelerated and enables appropriate access across a wide range of application types and access scenarios. Cloud Access Manager includes new social and mobile authentication capabilities that give users secure and convenient access to the broadest range of both legacy and emerging applications, while providing IT with the security and control it requires.

 The new solution adds powerful, adaptive control to its already extensive access control over activities across the organization, empowering better, more accurate access decisions.

Cloud Access Manager provides unified single sign-on that includes federation and legacy authentication types, along with the capabilities of Dell’s Security Analytics Engine to execute security in context – the "who, what, where, how, and why" of access activities – and adjust enforcement to ideally suit the situation. Dell’s Security Analytics Engine correlates this contextual information with enforcement capabilities to make all access appropriate every time, all the time, and without hindering productivity for an ever-evolving user who continues to access applications in new and more complex ways. New features in Cloud Access Manager 8.0 include:

  • Security Analytics Engine: Performs run-time risk evaluations that help companies scale security based on situational context, ensuring appropriate access for the right situations at the right time. Included with Cloud Access Manager 8.0 at no extra charge.
  • Social Authentication: Further addresses user password fatigue for customers who wish to enable single sign-on through a user’s social media properties, including Google, Microsoft Live ID, Facebook and Twitter.
  • OpenID Connect Protocol Support: Enables support for modern web and mobile applications using this next-generation identity protocol based on OAuth 2.0.
  • Microsoft Certification: Cloud Access Manager has been validated by Microsoft as part of their "Works with Office 365" Identity Partner Program.
