Qualys Selects TriCipher Solution For On-Demand Secure Single Sign-On

Security SaaS leader selects myOneLogin to protect and simplify access to Web-based applications
LOS GATOS, Calif., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- TriCipher, a leading provider of strong authentication solutions to protect against fraud and identity theft, announced today that its myOneLogin service was selected by Qualys, Inc. to provide its own employees with secure and convenient access to all of their Web applications.

myOneLogin delivers the perfect balance between Web application security and convenience. The solution uses strong multi-factor authentication to safeguard businesses from phishing attacks and password theft and gives users the ability to confidently and conveniently access all their applications from any computer using a single username and password.

"At Qualys, we believe firmly in the benefits of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), both in our own products and in the solutions we use to run our business," said Philippe Courtot, Chairman and CEO at Qualys. "myOneLogin adds a layer of identity assurance and control to the Web-based applications that we use. And because myOneLogin is itself delivered from the cloud as an on demand service, it's a great fit for our business."

Qualys offers a range of security audit and vulnerability management solutions as part of the QualysGuard(R) security and compliance SaaS suite. Qualys also uses Web applications in its own operations to support core business functions, including HR, collaboration and sales. myOneLogin gives Qualys employees a single, secure login to all their different web applications that they use in their jobs, including Salesforce, NetSuite, WebEx, and of course QualysGuard. myOneLogin also gives businesses the ability to audit application access and instantly remove access when an employee leaves an organization or is transitioned off a specific project.

TriCipher's myOneLogin solution delivers a single, secure on-demand gateway for hundreds of Web-based applications, implementing controls where employees would otherwise bypass corporate data identity and compliance mandates. The technology supports all existing governance standards and is the only strong authentication SSO solution delivered as a service. This unique architecture:

-- Eliminates the time and costs to install authentication hardware and software. -- Gives users access to all Web applications from any location and any computer. -- Protects access to confidential data wherever it resides.

myOneLogin offers scalable levels of protection and works with any Web-based application that uses federation standards or a routine username and password. The technology helps businesses automatically provision and de-provision online applications users - saving money on unused applications and protecting companies from unauthorized application access. TriCipher technology is deployed across several core verticals including electronic payment networks, financial services, healthcare and technology.

"Qualys is a trusted, established vendor in the security market, and one of the first in that market to embrace the on-demand delivery model. We're pleased that they have chosen TriCipher's myOneLogin Internet identity services platform to provide identity assurance and single sign-on for their own employees," said John De Santis, chairman and CEO of TriCipher. "myOneLogin helps companies like Qualys optimize their use of web-based applications while mitigating risk and supporting compliance efforts."
