Capgemini launches new identity as a service cybersecurity offering

New offering leverages Capgemini's cloud automation services to provide organizations with more flexible, comprehensive and cost-effective identity and access management as a service

Paris, 1 December 2015 – Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, today announced the launch of a new ‘identity as a service’ (Capgemini’s IDaaS) offering, part of its Cybersecurity Global Service Line. The offering is a flexible and comprehensive set of solutions to help meet the digital identity challenges of today and tomorrow. It is designed to enable organizations to control how employees, partners and consumers access services and information. Alongside the deep experience in cloud-based applications and cybersecurity from Capgemini and Sogeti, its local professional services subsidiary, the offering integrates commercial and open source components, including RSA® Via Lifecycle and Governance from RSA, the Security Division of EMC.

Cybercriminals targeting businesses and the exposure of millions of personal identities worldwide in recent years has made digital Identity, and its secure management, a significant area of concern for organizations around the world. Identity is increasingly becoming the critical point of control that organizations retain in the new digital environment. But Identity is now also rightly recognized as a business differentiator, allowing consumers and employees to securely and easily reach their data from any device via many different networks, applications, and multiple channels.

Capgemini’s new offering addresses these business and security demands by providing a highly scalable ‘as a service’ solution that brings together the critical areas of Identity Governance, Identity Administration, risk-based Authentication and context-aware Authorization to provide a truly unified identity and access management (IAM) solution.

“With cybersecurity becoming increasingly complicated, companies and users are looking for simplicity without jeopardizing themselves or their data. When it comes to identity, one of the most fundamental security issues, services have traditionally been fragmented and overseen by multiple providers causing a disjointed user experience”,  commentsFranck Greverie, Global Head of Cybersecurity at Capgemini Group. “Capgemini’s IDaaS offering takes away the complexity of identity security, bringing critical components together in one managed package to deliver a more seamless process for both user and operator.”

Capgemini’s IDaaS offering can rapidly deploy and maintain a single-tenant environment either on-premise or within the cloud providing high levels of flexibility and control to organizations. It is 100% compatible with the new generation of IT combining traditional data centers, private, public and hybrid cloud. By pre-building standardized IAM policies and processes within the solution, Capgemini is able to offer a ‘fast track’ to a more rapid business-focused IAM implementation. Additional service monitoring and reporting functionality provides higher levels of security and insight required from next generation IAM systems. Capgemini’s global delivery capability provides flexible and trained resources that are capable of delivering locally or from anywhere around the world, as required.   

Through this new service Capgemini customers will be able to leverage RSA Via Lifecycle and Governance technology to help efficiently and reliably manage and provide users with the right access to the right resources without sacrificing security, compliance, or agility.

Jim Ducharme, Vice President of Engineering and Product Management at RSA said, “Capgemini’s approach to identity management marries identity, security and compliance into a single portfolio of solutions that can easily scale to meet the demands of customers’ complex IT environments. With RSA Via Lifecycle and Governance, Capgemini customers will have greater visibility into and control over how users access applications and data resources, helping to both reduce security risk and to ensure consistent enforcement of ever changing compliance requirements without sacrificing the ease of use and agility required by business today. The working relationship between Capgemini and RSA offers customers a fast track approach to a next generation IAM solution that quickly responds to evolving business needs without sacrificing security and compliance.”
