Finding a Solution to Common Security Issues with OneLogin

OneLogin offers a solution for Identity and Access Management that works in the cloud to create a secure profile on each user’s computer that allows access to all of the software and accounts they may need with a single set of login credentials.

This solution aims to be more adaptable than other legacy web access management software by allowing for integration of more modern security protocols like Google Authenticator, Adaptive Authentication, or security event streaming. Previously popular SSO solutions may also seem to present a daunting task if the need should arise to update or alter them. This is because of their inherent and then necessary complexity, which could also lead to the risk of damaging the entire system if an update were to be attempted anyway.

OneLogin simplifies all of this and makes updating and altering easy if the need were to arise for any reason. To do this, OneLogin offers reduced resource requirements, which includes reduced need for maintenance and personnel costs. It also features unified identity and access management, which is being touted as a feature that allows access to be granted more efficiently from central user access control. The company has also designed a series of security options that can be implemented as they are needed, including Multi-Factor Authentication and Adaptive Authentication.

Increased productivity is an ultimate goal of OneLogin, which is why the software also features simplified on-prem app access, which allows users access to both on-premises web apps as well as SaaS apps through a single sign-on portal.

OneLogin was founded by Thomas and Christian Pederson, who were both involved with the help desk application Zendesk. It was through customer interactions regarding Zendesk that the pair saw need for a service like OneLogin due to its cloud-based nature. These interactions proved to the Pedersons that many companies were beginning to move into the cloud themselves and at a very rapid rate. The software launched in Spring 2010 and has added new features and functionality steadily since, the most recent of which has been the ability to add large user bases to Office 365 licenses.
