Symplified Selects OpSource to Help Enterprises Secure Cloud Computing

Santa Clara, Calif., March 2, 2009 — OpSource™, the leader in Web operations, today announced that Symplified, the on-demand identity company, is using OpSource On-Demand to bring its innovative access management solution to the enterprise marketplace. Symplified enables companies to secure and audit SaaS and Cloud computing resources by providing on-demand identity and access management (IAM). Symplified integrates enterprise IT controls with Salesforce.com, ADP, WebEx, Workday and others, improving security and easing compliance. Symplified chose OpSource On-Demand for its unmatched security, reliability and scalability. “2009 is undoubtedly the year of the Enterprise Cloud, and Symplified is enabling this revolution by providing centralized security and audit for applications that reside outside the firewall,” said Eric Olden, founder and CEO, Symplified. “When we set out to choose an operations partner, our key requirements were security and availability. We need to demonstrate to our customers that our on-demand infrastructure is more secure and more fault tolerant than their internal network. OpSource meets these requirements in spades.”

Using an on-demand security model, Symplified can cut costs of IAM deployments by 80 percent while achieving an unprecedented level of integration between the enterprise and the Cloud. Symplified SinglePoint is the first Internet utility for secure SaaS and Cloud application access, delivery and integration. SinglePoint uniquely combines identity and access management capabilities through a pre-integrated Cloud-based hub that links with the enterprise data center. Its unique ‘connect once, integrate an ecosystem’ approach accelerates secure SaaS deployments at a fraction of the cost.

For Symplified, it is mission-critical that their Web operations solution provider supply carrier-grade security and reliability. After an extensive review of vendors, Symplified chose OpSource On-Demand as its delivery solution because only OpSource On-Demand offers the SAS 70 Type II certification, PCI compliance, robust security, cost-effective pricing and far-reaching scalability that Symplified needs to help enterprises move to the Cloud.

“Symplified is providing a must-have access management solution for enterprises as they move to Cloud computing,” said Treb Ryan, CEO, OpSource. “OpSource On-Demand is ideal for companies such as Symplified that have security at the heart of their business, as security is always top of mind for us for all our customers. We look forward to working with companies like Symplified to make the Enterprise Cloud a reality this year.”
