Identity and Access Management

Unicon can meet the identity and access management (IAM) needs of any institution or organization, helping to solve the challenge of securing a robust IAM infrastructure. Unicon has the right expertise and technology to assess, implement, and support IAM solutions to improve IT security and allow collaboration.

Secure single sign-on (SSO)
Securely connect users to all applications, both in the cloud and behind the firewall, while seamlessly bridging the on-premises infrastructure to the cloud.

Access management
Centralize role, permission, group, and access management while implementing powerful delegated administration and auditing capabilities.

Federated SSO
Go beyond securely connecting just employees and extend single sign-on and access management across applications to providers, customers, and partners.

Multifactor Authentication
Unicon provides services to institutions and organizations desiring to implement multifactor authentication. Multifactor authentication enables an added layer of security in identifying whether a user has access to services or resources. Unicon can implement multifactor authentication from a variety of vendors.

Enable cloud adoption with open source IAM
Institutions can adopt cloud solutions securely with open source IAM software. Through enterprise open source web single sign-on, federated identity, and access management technologies secure collaboration and research in the cloud is possible. Unicon can also host IAM solutions in the cloud.

IAM in the Cloud
Unicon has developed a hosted Shibboleth identity provider (IdP) environment using the latest version of Shibboleth with a robust feature set. The Unicon IAM team has architected a redundant, load-balanced cloudbased infrastructure for federated single sign-on in the cloud using a defined streamlined implementation process. The cloud infrastructure is highly available, fault-tolerant, and can auto-scale to meet unexpected demands. The Shibboleth IdP is hosted within the most secure region of the cloud. Unicon’s experienced team of technology professionals delivers engineering and operational support, including maintenance of the cloud infrastructure and upgrades of the Shibboleth IdP, resulting in peace of mind for the client.
