Waltham, Mass.--January 7, 2013--Aveksa today announced new Single Sign-On (SSO) capabilities for MyAccessLive, Aveksa's Cloud-based Identity and Access Management offering.

With the new MyAccessLive SSO capabilities, the Aveksa cloud platform now securely connects users to all on-premise and cloud-based web applications.

It also includes mobile device support for improved security and accessibility. With this offering, Aveksa uniquely brings a holistic, business-driven approach to SSO, delivering easy application and user on-boarding for IT, while providing simple "one click" access for line-of-business users. Key elements of the new SSO capabilities include:

These new capabilities are part of Aveksa's MyAccessLive, a cloud-based offering that provides organizations an easy way to quickly obtain visibility of who has access to what IT resources, and ensure that access is appropriate, based on each user's role and job responsibilities. With these new integrated Single Sign-On capabilities, Aveksa now offers the industry's most complete IAM platform, comprising Identity and Access Governance, Provisioning and SSO Authentication.

With this complete, integrated platform, organizations can quickly, easily and securely:
