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.

Public clouds dominate IT conversations but the next phase of cloud evolutions are "multi" hybrid cloud environments. The winners in the cloud services industry will be those organizations that understand how to leverage these technologies as complete service solutions for specific customer verticals. In turn, both business and IT actors throughout the enterprise will need to increase their engagement with multi-cloud deployments today while planning a technology strategy that will constitute a significant part of their IT budgets in the very near future. As IoT solutions are growing rapidly, as well as security challenges growing exponentially, without a doubt, the cloud world is about to change for the better. Again.
The platform combines the strengths of Singtel's extensive, intelligent network capabilities with Microsoft's cloud expertise to create a unique solution that sets new standards for IoT applications," said Mr Diomedes Kastanis, Head of IoT at Singtel. "Our solution provides speed, transparency and flexibility, paving the way for a more pervasive use of IoT to accelerate enterprises' digitalisation efforts. AI-powered intelligent connectivity over Microsoft Azure will be the fastest connected path for IoT innovators to scale globally, and the smartest path to cross-device synergy in an instrumented, connected world.
While more companies are now leveraging the cloud to increase their level of data protection and management, there are still many wondering “why?” The answer: the cloud actually brings substantial advancements to the data protection and management table that simply aren’t possible without it. The easiest advantage to envision? Unlimited scalability. If a data protection tool is properly designed, the capacity should automatically expand to meet any customer’s needs. The second advantage: the cloud is the simplest way to centralize the storage of all secondary data sources while also providing unlimited compute that can be used to gain additional insight and business value from that data. Finally, the ability to do automated Disaster Recovery (DR) without maintaining a DR facility is unquestionably a major value of the cloud, and simply isn’t possible otherwise. Join W. Curtis Preston,...
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embracing the reality of Serverless architectures, which are critical to developing and operating real-time applications and services. Serverless is particularly important as enterprises of all sizes develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives.
