Cloud Identity

Give your users one-click access to their favorite apps

Enable employees to work from anywhere, on any device, with one-click access to all the apps they need. Employees can focus on their work, and you can more easily manage thousands of identities as people join, move, and leave the organization. Our single sign-on supports SAML 2.0 and OpenID and works with hundreds of applications out of the box, including SAP SuccessFactors, Salesforce, as well as GCP and G Suite apps like Docs and Sheets.

Enforce security policies for personal and corporate devices

Help keep your employees happy and your data secure with device management for Android and iOS that you can set up in minutes. Support employee-friendly bring your own device (BYOD) policies, while enforcing enterprise security protocols. Implement screen locks, wipe data, and secure devices from the same integrated console where you manage users and apps.

Be agile in hybrid cloud environments

Seamlessly integrate your cloud and on-premises directories in one highly secure, reliable Identity as a Service (IDaaS) platform.

When all your identities and apps are managed in one place, you can gain more control over security, reduce costs and complexity, and increase the adoption of cloud technology across your business.

Cloud Identity is used by hundreds of thousands of business customers to manage millions of users and devices

At ExtraHop, our mantra is ‘Security in everything we do.’ Setting up Cloud Identity was very straightforward and lets us effortlessly enforce our security policies, for example, implementing two-factor authentication for third-party SaaS services that don’t support advanced security features.
