SaaSID celebrates company milestones

- 'Smart' vendor blazes a trail for compliance in the cloud -

23rd May 2013, Basingstoke, UK, Web application security provider, SaaSID, is celebrating a number of company milestones following the launch of its Cloud Application Manager (CAM) software. CAM provides single sign-on (SSO) to any web application and helps organisations to minimise the risk of unauthorised access to sensitive information. CAM goes beyond SSO to enable centralised control over application features, preventing misuse of data by restricting download, share and export functions, regardless of the device used by employees.

Ed Macnair, CEO of SaaSID, explains, "Our goal has always been to make it easier for all organisations to benefit from web applications by tackling security and compliance concerns. Our browser-based technology is a truly innovative solution that puts CIOs back in control of data that is accessed using web applications. SaaSID is still the only vendor that provides SSO and goes beyond it to control application features and provide a comprehensive audit trail of employees' interactions with web applications. We have continually listened to customer feedback and developed new tools to reduce administration time, automate strong password management and provide an intuitive interface to prove governance, risk management and compliance. It is gratifying to see that so many of our customers, partners, analysts and peers agree with our approach."

In May, SaaSID was named in "Tall and Small - Smart or Cool: an IDC assessment of vendors to watch in Europe". Categorising SaaSID as a "Smart" vendor, IDC Research Director for European Security Software, Kevin Bailey, wrote, "SaaSID brings a level of accessibility and authentication for SaaS applications that reduces application sprawl and retains control, during a period of growth where the data and devices to access these applications are spiralling. This is a 'smart' approach to a challenging concern".

In March 2013, CAM 2.0 was launched, providing customers with server-side authentication and an intuitive dashboard, CAM Analytics, which enables both IT specialists and business managers to see their entire web application estate and to prove that employees' web application use follows corporate policies and complies with data protection rules.

Since the launch of CAM, the company's innovation has been recognised by a number of Cloud and information security thought leaders:

  • SaaSID won the Cloud Tech Trailblazer award in December 2012
  • SaaSID was named as a finalist in the Innovation category of the SC Awards Europe 2013
  • SaaSID is listed as a "Specialist Cloud Service Provider" to G-Cloud ii and G-Cloud iii
  • SaaSID CAM was added to the Google Apps marketplace in April 2013
  • SaaSID was included in the latest IDaaS market research note by Gartner
  • SaaSID CAM was independently reviewed by IT Pro and PC Pro and given a 5 star rating.
  • SaaSID CEO, Ed Macnair, has been invited to present on the topic of web application feature control and auditing to information security investors at America's Growth Capital conference on 25th January in San Francisco and on 4th June 2013 in London

The company has developed technology and integration partnerships with a number of leading technology companies: these include technology partnerships with QuoVadis, EMC GreenPlum and Kinamik and development partnerships with Apple and Microsoft. In addition, SaaSID has a number of international channel partners including:

  • Preventia
  • Blue Cube
  • The Bunker
  • Imtech ICT
  • Fedr8
  • Fujitsu
  • Crypsys
  • Multipoint

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, revealed what you need to know when it comes to encryption in the cloud.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
