CHICAGO, IL: Radiant Logic, cloud based identity service, unveils RadiantOne, with VDS and the Cloud Federation Service (CFS), a highly scalable, multi-tenant identity framework for large enterprises. The solution with a single sign-on and web access management delivers federated identity service, secure access to cloud-based applications for several healthcare organizations facing merger, acquisition, and consolidation challenges.

Healthcare industries are facing critical challenges for mission-critical applications, whether they’re in the enterprise, on the web, or in the cloud. Since more and more acquisitions and partnerships are taking place in the industry, new challenges are surfacing like diversity IT infrastructures. Current solution demands a solution that can leverage identity across all local systems and hybrid environments for global initiatives, and also adheres to the compliance requirements.  

RadiantOne simplifies the process of federation access of cloud applications by turning disparate, fragmented identity infrastructures into one logical identity provider. CFS, in its latest iteration v 3.5, identifies users, routes and authenticates against the local sources, and collects attributes from multiple data stores to build security tokens that meet the unique needs of each Service Provider (SP) or Relying Party (RP).

“RadiantOne VDS is the key engine used by many organizations in the Healthcare space to consolidate and federate their identity and provide a common service for accessing cloud and web applications,” says Michel Prompt, CEO at Radiant Logic. “CFS extends access to applications such as Office 365 or those supported on Microsoft Azure and makes it easier for organizations who have identities in a variety of local stores, to manage those identities globally.”

The additional features of the include provision for multi-tenant service allowing enterprises to host third-party identity data on premises. This offers access to user populations stored in a variety of repositories and turns the healthcare enterprise into an IdP.

It also enables authentication from social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as Google Apps, PayPal, and other additional identity providers; offers two-form factor authentication, making it more difficult for hackers to access an account using only a password. It authenticates via a number of protocols including SAML, WS-Federation and Trust, OAuth 2.0, and OpenID Connect and delivers SSO both inside and outside the firewall, so users can sign on securely from remote locations and still access all their applications.

It also allows tenants to easily manage users and groups through a user-friendly interface and allows users to self-register and enhanced security with Level of Assurance (LOA) and Circle of Trust features adding additional layers of access control and enabling authorization decisions.
