Taking Cloud Computing to the Next Level

Providing a powerful solution to easily provision and de-Provision users to any cloud

Optimal IdM, LLC, a leading global provider of identity management software and consulting solutions, today formally announced its cloud computing solution and its cloud beta program. Using its flagship platform, the Virtual Identity Server(TM) (VIS(TM)) and its automated compliance management tool (VIS for ACM(TM)), Optimal IdM can easily and efficiently provision and de-provision users into any cloud

Optimal IdM's cloud computing solution uses its core virtual directory technology to provide organizations with a real-time joined view of the user's data from both the cloud and the data coming from the customer's repositories in the private network. This provides a single point of administration of the user and allows for the seamless update of the user in both the cloud and on premise. A challenge for many organizations is providing an easy, rapid means of migrating users to and from the cloud, which often requires custom coding that is cloud specific. Utilizing VIS's data transformation engine, Optimal IdM is able to provide an easy to use robust solution that provides an interface to any cloud.

Larry Aucoin, Managing Partner of Optimal IdM, states, "To date we have successfully integrated our Virtual Identity Server into both Microsoft's and the Google Apps cloud, but can be easily extended for other clouds. We are formalizing the beta program that we started quietly and opening it up to more participants." Individuals interested in joining the beta program, should email [email protected]

Michael Brengs, Managing Partner of Optimal IdM, adds, "The integration we currently have with the cloud is very compelling and is a great value proposition for customers looking to efficiently move to the cloud. Optimal IdM, however, is taking this integration to the next level in a future release to further simplify cloud computing. VIS will revolutionize cloud computing by eliminating the need to duplicate or provision accounts into the cloud entirely. This will significantly reduce the cost, complexity and deployment time for implementing a cloud based solution.
