McAfee Cloud Identity Manager provides first-mile session look-up connectors to common identity-management solutions and enterprise platforms such as Microsoft SharePoint*, as well as last-mile session creation and account provisioning connectors to popular SaaS and platform as a service. Federated authentication and authorization protocols are based on SAML, eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML), and emerging OAuth and OpenID identity standards that can connect Internet-based identity providers (for example, Facebook) with corporate identities and authorization policies.
OpSource enables customers to extend their internal network into the OpSource Cloud entirely behind the firewall through the creation of a site-to-site VPN tunnel between environments. With this capability, they can easily extend and integrate existing user-authentication and user-management systems into their cloud environment so that user credentials apply equally in all environments.
Our security services portal provides organizations with visibility into their public and private cloud security infrastructures. The portal provides SSO with a high-level security overview and direct access to the individual security tools that are deployed across the customer’s entire organization.
The xStream cloud offering is often configured as just another “node” on an enterprise’s network because the xStream platform isolates a customer’s routing from all other customers and the enterprise platform is isolated from all inbound Internet connections. This extension can utilize existing WAN technologies deployed in the customer’s enterprise, private point-to-point connections, or VPN tunnels with any sort of encryption or authentication measures required by the customer’s business.
