IDMWORKS' IdentityForge Eases the Challenges of User Lifecycle Management with Azure AD Platform Integration to IdentityForge Gateway
The Floridant/10152912

MIAMI - Floridant -- IDMWORKS announced the extension of their IdentityForge connector suite to include a new integration between the IdentityForge Gateway and Microsoft's Azure AD platform. Enterprises are now able to automate user provisioning from Azure AD to Mainframe, Healthcare as well as dozens of other on-premises and cloud applications.

The IdentityForge Gateway offers a central, standardized integration engine and modern identity store that serves as a trusted source for all life-cycle management. Azure AD identity lifecycle management (LCM) automates standard account provisioning lifecycle use cases such as create, read (import), update, deactivate, delete user accounts, and perform group management. Now through the IdentityForge Gateway for Azure AD, enterprises can extend lifecycle management for critical target systems that are not covered by the Azure AD connector portfolio, such as Mainframe systems (RACF, Top Secret, ACF2) and Healthcare applications (EPIC/Cerner).

More on The Floridant
"The Identity Security landscape is a rich ecosystem of different vendors, products, and unique client environments. We continuously develop our suite of leading solutions that stitch together disparate technologies to deliver greater efficiencies, streamlined experiences, and improved security for our clients and partners," comments Paul Bedi, Founder & CEO, IDMWORKS. "This latest release not only automates user provisioning which saves valuable time, but it allows broad application management at scale, built on the latest secure software."

Easy to Set Up
Setup and integration typically require less than a few hours, configuring a connector through a few lines of code and mapping attributes exposed by the IdentityForge Gateway to the Azure AD profile.

IdentityForge Gateway is installed on-premises and communicates to Azure AD via the Azure AD provisioning bridge. The provisioning bridge's communication with Azure AD is TLS encrypted. IdentityForge Gateway uses industry standard protocols provided by target systems for secure communication with target systems. IdentityForge Gateway does not store credentials and is a stateless pass-through service with success/error messages returned to Azure AD to handle retries. IDMWORKS follows best practices for secure software development and undergoes annual SOC2 Type2 certification.
