Press release from: Optimal IdM

Optimal IdM, LLC, a Microsoft Gold Certified partner, today announced theVirtual Identity Server for Office 365™ (VIS for Office 365™), a product that enables rapid cloud deployment and extends Office 365 by adding additional features and functionality. VIS for Office 365 is a complete end-to-end solution including: synching users and groups, providing a cloud firewall that can filter or translate data as it is synched (or during authentication), as well as, providing complete audit logging, two-factor authentication and denial of service (DoS) capabilities.

Jeff Bohren, Senior Software Architect at Optimal IdM, states, “Whether you have multiple Active Directory (AD) Forests or use a directory such as Novell’s e-Directory, VIS for Office 365 can quickly and easily take your users to the cloud wherever they reside. Multi-forest deployments can belong, complicated deployments requiring a resource forest.We eliminate this complexity by synchronizing users and groupsright from the source data stores and likewise federating directly to them.”

VIS for Office 365 contains a built-in cloud firewallprotecting a customer’s internal AD,allowing administrators to easily decide what data is synchronized to the cloud, rather than all user and groups being synchronized to the cloud. VIS for Office 365 also supports customers with either non-routable domains for a UserPrincipalName such as JoeUser@Optimal.local or multiple UPN suffixes. It handles this on-the-fly by translating on the outbound synch and as the user authenticates to Office 365, with no data changes required in Active Directory.

Additionally, VIS for Office 365 includes advancedcompliance and auditing capabilities. As users authenticate to the cloud, VIS for Office 365 automatically logs who authenticated, when, and with what claims to a SQL database. Administrators can use the out-of-the-box reports or use their favorite reporting tool to mine this data.VIS for Office 365 alsoprovides powerful denial of service (DoS) prevention and detection to an Office 365 deployment, by detecting and preventing an account from being locked. Alerts and emails can even be triggered to notify administrators that there has been an incident.

In terms of key out-of-the-box features, Michael Brengs, Director of Sales at Optimal IdM, adds, “We have seen a tremendous response to our offering, I think in part due to the enhanced platform support we provide Office 365such as: multi-forest, multi-platform, non-routable domains.Our offering is made even more powerful because we alsooffer additional capabilities that organizations have been interested in such as: our denial of service (DoS) detection/prevention, two-factor authentication, cloud firewall/filtering and compliance auditing capabilities.Simply put, with VIS for Office 365, you get to the cloud faster, with less complexity and greater functionality.”

VIS for Office 365 is available now and will be showcased at the upcoming The Experts Conference (TEC 2012) in San Diego, CA (http://www.theexpertsconference.com/us/2012/).
