PALO ALTO, Calif. and STOCKHOLM, Jan. 26, 2011 Managing user access to dozens of cloud applications has posed significant challenges for companies around the world in terms of security and productivity. Yubico, a leading provider of easy and secure login solutions, and OneLogin, a cloud single sign-on and identity management provider, today announced that Wealthfront has implemented a joint solution to address this.

Wealthfront, the leading marketplace providing access to outstanding money managers, is using OneLogin’s single sign-on and identity management service and the innovative authentication key from Yubico. The convenient key generates a one-time-password used by Wealthfront employees to securely access the OneLogin Application Portal, protecting access to its Web applications, without compromising ease-of-use.

“With OneLogin and YubiKey, we are able to login securely to all our corporate applications as well as thousands of online services with one password and a simple click of a button,” says Pascal-Louis Perez, CTO, Wealthfront, Inc.

“Because employees only need to log in once, Wealthfront can increase the security surrounding application access without compromising the ease-of-use needed to gain user adoption. OneLogin gives enterprise customers a single sign-on solution that eliminates the need to remember several usernames, passwords and destination URLs. The solution also empowers IT to authenticate users against the organization’s Active Directory, as well as control and monitor application usage. The Yubico USB-keys add another security layer by generating one-time passwords that ensure protected access and prevent phishing attacks that can expose sensitive data to criminals.

“When users have to remember numerous passwords, they will naturally default to easy-to-remember, weak login credentials,” explains Thomas Pedersen, Founder and CEO of OneLogin, Inc. “It’s up to technology vendors like OneLogin and Yubico to create a painless and safe process that users prefer.”
