The First Complete Identity and Fine-Grained Authorization Solution Is Now Available as 'SaaS'

The First Complete Identity and Fine-Grained Authorization Solution Is Now Available as 'SaaS'

VALLEY VILLAGE, Calif., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- BiTKOO -- The Identity Management Company today announced that its flagship product Keystone is now available as software as a service ('SaaS'). This marks a major breakthrough for enterprise identity and access management. Keystone was originally developed at the Walt Disney Company and later exclusively licensed to BiTKOO. Doron Grinstein, BiTKOO's CEO invented the Keystone technology while at Disney.

Keystone allows organizations to secure any kind of application including web applications, web services, rich-client applications, and disconnected mobile applications. It provides sophisticated fine-grained authorization and a robust authentication abstraction layer.

Mr. Grinstein said, "We realized that we can offer Keystone as a 'SaaS' model when we combined our SecureWithin technology with Keystone -- the result was amazing. SecureWithin allows organizations to securely expose any endpoint to the Internet without the need for DMZ, VPN, poking holes in the firewall, etc."

"Since Keystone is comprised of a set of web services, we realized that we could connect securely to organizations' directories without really affecting their computing infrastructure. We then provide the Keystone 'Dial Tone' from one of our geographically dispersed data centers. This provides unprecedented level of high availability."

Keystone has been battle proven at the Walt Disney Company for over three years where it is utilized to secure various kinds of applications and web services.

BiTKOO also announced that Keystone is now available as either a hardware appliance, virtual server appliance or as a combination of software, hardware and 'SaaS'. "One more benefit of our 'SaaS' offering is that companies do not need to solely rely on the 'SaaS' instance. They can install our hardware appliance and have our hosted service act as backup. Keystone automatically replicates the data to the hosted service so if the local instance fails, the clients automatically fail over to the 'SaaS' instance."

Earlier this year BiTKOO announced federated authorization, a new bread of technology that revolutionized how distributed systems are secured. With today's announcement, BiTKOO once again blazes the trail of innovation and opens up a whole new world of possibilities.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next-gen applications and how to address the challenges of building applications that harness all data types and sources.
