Symplified Awarded Patent For Identity-as-a-Service Technology

BOULDER, Colo., April 10, 2013 – Symplified, the leader in Identity as a Service (IDaaS) for the hybrid cloud, today announced the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has awarded the company a patent for its unique approach to access management and policy enforcement for hybrid environments.

Symplified received Patent 8,418,238 for its proxy-based single sign-on (SSO) and identity and access management (IAM) solution. Unlike other solutions on the market, Symplified provides customers with both on-premises and cloud-based deployment options, along with granular visibility and control over user behavior within applications via its proxy-based approach and detailed auditing capabilities.

Symplified’s hybrid architecture allows organizations to leverage the benefits of a cloud-delivered service while maintaining the important security properties provided by a dedicated environment.

Symplified’s solution can be deployed on a customer’s network or in the cloud, providing organizations with greater flexibility and control over how they bridge existing identity infrastructure, users and applications, both on-premises and in the cloud. This enables all identity information and credentials to stay within the customers’ control, which is often a requirement for compliance and risk management.

“Symplified’s approach to IDaaS was founded on security,” said Shayne Higdon, president and CEO of Symplified. “Our goal is to provide the right tools for IT and security organizations to regain visibility and control across the growing number of applications they use to run their business and across a growing number of mobile devices in the era of SaaS and BYOD. We are pleased our unique approach has been recognized with a U.S. patent, which is great testament to the work of Darren Platt, our CTO, co-founder and first named inventor on the patent.”
