Leading Open Source Cloud Computing Provider Partners with Cloud Security Company to Offer Single Sign-On, Access Control and User Provisioning

CUPERTINO, Calif. & BOULDER, Colo.–Cloud.com, a provider of open source cloud computing solutions, and Symplified, the cloud security company, today announced a partnership to provide service providers with single sign-on (SSO) capabilities to increase end-user satisfaction and reduce management costs. The partnership will combine Symplified™ and Cloud.com CloudStack™ to enable service providers to deliver robust identity and access management (IAM) security and integration capabilities within their offerings, making them more ‘enterprise ready’ and suitable for larger organizations.

“For service providers with public cloud offerings, single sign-on, access control and user management become critical capabilities they must provide to their customers,” said Eric Olden, CEO at Symplified. “By combining our identity and access management service with Cloud.com’s comprehensive open source platform, we can deliver secure SSO along with other core cloud management functions, including end-user self administration, service offering management, and billing and reporting.”

Identity and access management plays an important part in the enterprise adoption of cloud computing as it solves the security, compliance and regulatory needs of the enterprise customer. The Cloud.com – Symplified solution enables cloud services providers to offer high-value, differentiated IAM capabilities that solve these enterprise needs, while at the same time helping providers avoid commoditization within their space.
