Cloud Access 360 2.0 version released

We're happy to announce general availability of Intel Expressway Cloud Access 360 (ECA 360) 2.0 release. This new release adds a range of exciting new features designed to simplify and improve our customers ability to manage user's access to popular cloud applications. Key new features and benefits include:


Built-in SSO portal

An out-of-box SSO portal is available with the product that can run standalone or embedded inside existing portals such as Sharepoint. Users authenticate once to the portal and enjoy convenient, seamless SSO access to any authorized cloud app. As SSO portals expose keys to the kingdom, login to it can be protected with 2-factor authentication using mobile based One Time Password (OTP) offered through the bundled OTP module.

More connectors

New out-of-the-box connectors are available for popular cloud apps such as Microsoft Office365, Cisco WebEx, Box.Net, Service-Now, SugarCRM, Zoho, EchoSign, Schoology, and Joomla.

Transparent HTTP form-based SSO

Not every SaaS application support SAML based federation today. This feature allows customers to bring non-SAML apps into the SSO portal providing convenient, seamless access to users and enabling IT to achieve better control and visibility on SaaS application usage. This is achieved by enabling users to register user ID and password once on a web site and capturing the data for transparent SSO the next time the user accesses the app. The process is transparent to the user as they don't even see the log-on screen.

Salesforce as an Identity Provider

Instead of authenticating the user against Active Directory, ECA 360 allows the user to be authenticated using Facebook, Google, Yahoo, and any OpenID provider. With this release, Salesforce as an Idenity Provider has been added to this list. This enables our customers to let its contractor, partner and affiliate users to login into ECA 360 SSO portal using Salesforce credentials and further access cloud applications they are authorized to access.

Enterprise-class scalability

ECA 360's ability to support more than 10,000 concurrent user authentications has been tested and verified.

Higher performance and availability

ECA 360 administrators can now run multiple instances in a clustered environment.

Other improvements
