You may have seen us tweeting about this for the past few weeks: we recently entered the UP-START Cloud Awards for “best cloud security solution,” and are excited to share that after two rounds of voting, we are one of three finalists that have made it to the final round!
Although we provide solutions for all environments, the cloud is at the center of the evolution of IAM. Cloud adoption enables enterprises to focus on building relationships with their customers, employees, and partners easily and efficiently. Now all enterprise stakeholders can access information from anywhere on any device, which consequently brings a whole new set of security challenges to the table. Our solution not only helps to secure access to the cloud, but also helps to leverage it effectively so organizations can easily interact with employees, customers, and partners.
The UP Cloud community has chosen us for our Open Identity Stack – the only open source identity stack that companies can use to secure their next-gen applications and services. On top of that, our stack can also be used for traditional identity management. While we recognize the shift in the industry, we believe it’s important to continue supporting enterprises that need to use traditional systems.
The final round of voting will take place at the UP 2013 cloud computing conference on December 3 in Santa Clara – drop us a vote if you’ll be there! Thank you to all our supporters who helped us get to this final round; it’s great to have such a wonderful community behind us!
