CloudCodes announces the availability of their next generation cloud security product SSO1. It is an advanced version of their existing product gControl. The SaaS based gControl helped to secure Google For Work customers whereas SSO1 provides support for multiple enterprise cloud applications such SalesForce, Zoho, DropBox, FreshDesk etc-etc.

SSO1 is a Single Sign On(SSO) solution and supports out of the box integration with Google For Work. SSO1 can be integrated with organisation Active Directory or can itself act as an Identity Provider(IdP). The solution is designed ground up keeping security in mind. The solutions provides the capabilities of IdP such as password management, self-password and multi-factor authentication(MFA).

The MFA comes with support for biometric through a smartphone and OTP. Mostly all the advanced smartphones now available with support for fingerprint scan. It leverages the fingerprint scanner available in the smartphones to act as an additional factor for authentication.

The new SSO1 comes with support of anti-phishing control. The solution enables the administrator to restrict access to the login page based on the country or the IP address. This ensures that only internal users have access to the login page. This allows the administrator to control access to the applications from countries which are known for hacking or phishing attacks.

Another important aspect of the new SSO1 is its additional capabilities to control access to organisation’s cloud application based on perimeter. The cloud security solution enables the administrator to control the access of the application based on the IP address, Geo Fencing, Time and Browser. This brings a tighter control based on compliance and regulatory requirements.

SSO1 supports integration with multiple cloud based applications. It uses the standard SAML based integration to integrate with the various cloud applications. Currently SSO1 supports integration with Google For Work, SalesForce,Zoho, DropBox and Freshdesk. The roadmap expects to cover most of the popular cloud applications within the next three months. Another important feature is mapping of multiple users to single account of the cloud application.
