Unlimited Web Access Management
Web Access Management tools allow Single Sign-On (SSO) to a web resource by letting users log in with one type of credential (e.g., PKI certificate, One-Time Password (OTP), etc.) and then logging that user into the web resource with a different type of credential. SSO coupled with Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) drastically reduces security risks including insider threats.
Web Access Management tools are typically deployed through a proxy (e.g., reverse web proxy, firewall, etc.). While this reduces the costs of designing software plugins, it also requires network re-architecture, which is not a simple task. More importantly, because all of the web resources sit behind the Web Access Management, it creates a network bottleneck. This is a particularly important issue for organizations with web resources that are accessed by thousands of users. For these types of implementations, organizations must purchase expensive proxies or risk latency and dropped connections.
TELEGRID’s patent-pending SMRTe securely authenticates the user and then provides direct access to a web resource thereby removing bottlenecks and latency. When a user logs into the SMRTe with their credentials they are presented with “one pane of glass” displaying all web resources in the network. When they click on a desired web resource the SMRTe, in conjunction with the existing AAA infrastructure, authorizes the user and gives them direct access to the web resource. Even though devices and applications do not “sit behind” the SMRTe, like in proxy-based Web Access Management tools, the SMRTe’s revolutionary design ensures that hackers cannot go around it and access the web resource directly. The SMRTe is able to protect access through its patent-pending technology which utilizes the existing AAA infrastructure and tokenization instead of passwords. This technology removes the possibility of a brute force password attack and the need for a password vault.
