The global economy is driven by partnerships that span across supply chains and sales and distribution channels. Giving your partners seamless access to the applications they need is critical to your business, but managing all of those user IDs and passwords is a financial drain and a serious security risk to your organization. Many world-class enterprises like Walmart, GE and Cisco use Identity Defined Security concepts to solve their most complex partner challenges.
There are three critical requirements to providing a complete partner identity solution:
Federated Access—Give your partners secure and seamless federated single sign-on and access to all the internal and third-party applications and APIs they need, even if they use their own federated SSO solution to connect to yours.
Cloud SSO—If your partners don’t have in-house federated SSO capabilities, they should be able to have their own cloud-based SSO portal with a direct, secure connection to your portal.
Cloud Directory—Your smaller partners who don’t have a user management solution can manage their own user identities in a cloud directory, which takes minutes to get up and running.
