New Enhancements Integrate With IT Infrastructure and Enable Seamless Access
(MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- Jul 26, 2016) - Authentic8, maker of Silo, the cloud-based secure browser for business, introduced today new enterprise capabilities for its flagship product aimed at seamless deployment within the enterprise and added convenience for end users.
Silo now includes synchronization with Microsoft™ Active Directory (AD) services, integration with Identity Provider (IDP) solutions for federated authentication, and enhancements to the Silo Access Portal to streamline secure access to the web.
By synchronizing Silo with AD, an organization's traditional methods of managing users, enabling application access and defining policies can be used as the basis for deploying and managing Silo for secure access to the web.
For organizations that rely on federated authentication systems, such as Microsoft ADFS or other commercial identity provider (IDP) services that are based on the standard Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), Silo deploys without requiring users to perform further authentication steps. Once the user is registered on the network, use of Silo is seamless.
