PALO ALTO, Calif. and STOCKHOLM, Jun. 14, 2011 — Yubico, a leading provider of easy and secure login solutions, and OneLogin, a cloud-based Identity and Access Management (IAM) provider, today announced a joint solution for managing access to multiple cloud-based applications that has been implemented for Sterling Knight. All three companies expressed confidence that the solution is effectively addressing security, compliance and cost challenges common to financial service companies across the globe.
Sterling Knight, a financial services company based in Singapore, is using the innovative authentication key from Yubico and OneLogin’s single sign-on and identity management service. The convenient key generates a One-Time Password (OTP) used by Sterling Knight remote workers 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 our cloud-based applications such as Google Apps and salesforce.com with one password and the simple click of a button,” said Lawrence Adam, Chief Operating Officer of Sterling Knight. “The implementation of the OneLogin/YubiKey solution was so simple that even our least technical employees were trained to use it in about 15 minutes.”
Leading IT market research and advisory firm IDC recently reviewed the joint solution used by Sterling Knight in a Buyer Case Study and found that companies such as OneLogin and Yubico are demonstrating that cloud-based solutions are indeed viable and secure options in today’s computing environment.
“For those that are looking to eliminate multiple passwords and strengthen their access controls without putting too much pressure on their budgets and staff should consider these types of solutions from Yubico and OneLogin,” said Sally Hudson, Research Director, Identity and Access Management Products and Services at IDC.
By using the OneLogin/YubiKey solution, Sterling Knight has improved security while meeting compliance requirements and offering the latest technology to protect customer privacy. The cost savings gained by having more employees work remotely has enabled Sterling Knight to expand operations.
