Vordel Enables Single Sign on across Hybrid Clouds Managed by VMware vCloudŽ Director 1.5
Vordel Gives Enterprises Access Control across their Organizations' Cloud Usage
August 30, 2011 - Las Vegas Today at VMworldŽ 2011, Vordel, a provider of gateways for SOA and Cloud Computing, announced that its Vordel Gateway product will provide a single point of control for single-sign on across hybrid cloud infrastructures managed by the VMware vCloudŽ Director 1.5. With this latest release, Vordel enables enterprises to exercise access and authentication controls across their hybrid cloud infrastructure. The joint solution removes any remaining impediments to the adoption of Cloud infrastructure as an enterprise ready service and facilitates the speedy roll out of such services.
Vordel Gateway, applies a layer of identity management across the hybrid cloud infrastructure managed by the VMware vCloudŽ Director. As organizations increasingly link private clouds to external clouds from different providers they need to persist identity-based access control policies across these domains. Vordel integrates with many existing internal identity management platforms (e.g. Active Directory, CA SiteMinder, Entrust GetAccess, Oracle Identity Manager etc.) and federates these identities and policies to permit single-sign on to externally hosted public cloud services. As a direct result, organizations can overcome the costly provisioning and management of multiple identities and accelerate the implementation of their cloud strategies.
"We welcome Vordel's announcement and their extended support for VMware vCloudŽ Director," said Dan Chu, Vice President, Cloud Infrastructure and Services, VMware. "Vordel's focused solution for the federation of identity across multiple cloud domains complements the VMware strategy of accelerating the adoption by enterprises of cloud infrastructure."
Mark O'Neill, CTO at Vordel said, "We complement the VMware vCloudŽ Director by accelerating the ability of organizations to easily roll out their hybrid cloud infrastructures. By delivering a single-sign on capability across a hybrid cloud infrastructure we remove the need for multiple authentication steps and the costly provisioning of users for private and public clouds."
"Our integrations with leading Identity Management platforms and VMware vCloudŽ Director gives end-users a central command point to control the usage of public cloud-based resources alongside control of private cloud services running on-premises", added O'Neill.
