Coalfire Securely Enables the Productivity of Their Mobile Workforce
Coalfire had a set of cloud-based applications including Office 365 that created authentication challenges and risks. With on-premises AD and ADFS as their current solution, they needed to move to a more robust solution for federated SSO that was easier to administer and add new applications. Around 40% of Coalfire’s workforce is fully mobile, so the organization required a platform that would allow their employees to authenticate from multiple devices seamlessly. With 13 offices across the U.S. and the U.K., the team was also looking to remove their dependency on office-based servers.
The Coalfire team selected the Ping Identity platform, leveraging PingFederate, PingID and PingOne to migrate a range of applications off of ADFS and implement advanced authentication scenarios for applications including Box and Office 365.
Now, employees have secure and convenient access to critical tools like Office 365, allowing them to do their jobs more easily. The combination of SSO and MFA enabled Coalfire’s mobile workforce to authenticate seamlessly to the apps they needed, when they needed them on any of their devices—all while strengthening security to meet the stringent requirements for the organization. End users love that they no longer have to manage various bookmarks for their SaaS apps, but instead have one-click access to the tools they need.
