Amazon Web Services (AWS) just announced it has launched SAML 2.0 support for AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) for customers who want to leverage their existing investment in SAML-based identity management software. Through federated SSO, Amazon users can sign into the AWS Management Console or make programmatic calls to AWS APIs with assertions from a SAML-compliant identity provider.
Symplified supports AWS SAML-based IAM and is pleased to have worked with Amazon to validate it. Our new support means Symplified now offers a unified on-premises and Amazon cloud solution, all with the same identity management and access controls that an enterprise would expect. It means that for the first time, the Amazon cloud is really large-enterprise ready when it comes to providing standards-based integration for IAM and SSO.

We are very excited to support our partners at Amazon on this development. It’s a great complement to our direction and vision for the cloud-enabled future of corporate IT. Along with our mobile IAM and SSO solutions, Symplified is leading the movement away from legacy access management systems to a hybrid cloud and mobile-first nimble enterprise.
