Delivered as a virtual hardware appliance, the Identity Router™ has a hardened OS and performance-optimized software that delivers IAM in a single device. It is complemented with cloud-delivered updates and policy management, so there is no need to update your software.
The onsite appliance is typically deployed in your DMZ so that it can accept connections from users both inside and outside the firewall. This self-contained appliance requires minimal modification to your IT infrastructure and can be centrally managed from a single administrative console.
Symplified also offers a simple migration path from this on-premises appliance to the cloud-based deployment model.
Delivered as a hosted proxy gateway in Amazon EC2 (SAS 70 Type II data center), the Identity Router™ integrates with your behind-the-firewall directories and provides the same IAM capabilities as the appliance.
The cloud-based deployment model offers global deployment choices, elastic scale up and scale out, plus cross-firewall SSL secure networking. The advantages to this deployment model include faster time to realize value, lower startup and management costs, and a pricing structure that scales as needed.
High-Availability and Disaster Recovery
The Symplified Identity Router™ can be configured in a cluster for both high availability and scalability using standard load balancing technology. Further, they can be deployed across multiple AWS availability zones to create disaster recovery redundancies.
No Replication of User Information
Symplified does not replicate your user store data because that would create another version of your critical user credentials which requires further management overhead. Rather, Symplified requests credential validation from the user store of record when a user attempts to log in to one of the protected web applications.
