Another great year is in the books for OneLogin, the cloud identity management platform company. One of the biggest highlights for this leader in security authentication protection was the addition of their new CEO, Brad Brooks who started in Augusts. Mr. Brooks, a leader in global technology companies, was delighted to join the company who was ranked in the top 10 of Fortune Magazine’s Best Small Workplaces in the Bay Area for 2017. This award joins other recognition on their shelf form past years for being a wonderful place to work. Not only were employees happy at OneLogin, customers were pleased with their products. Fourteen new customer stories from various organizations were released and the number will surely keep growing this new year. A major new acquisition to the OneLogin Family was Airbus, the aeronautics and space manufacturer joins OneLogin’s thousands of global customers.
On the development side, OneLogin unveiled their next-generation multi-factor authentication functionality, Adaptive Authentication, in April. This product uses machine learning to review login details such as the time, location, browser, device, and network where the login takes place. Based on that criteria, the network determines if the login is secure and will prompt the user with an MFA request before the login process can proceed. Later in the year, the OneLogin Portal was upgraded to make the app access faster. This upgrade also included the accessibility of frequently used apps within the portal; a greater flexibility of searching within the app via keyword descriptions; and the ability to look up any app, even if it is not in the program (can add it with the universal connector). Another great development was the shifting of priorities for OneLogin to web-access management. This new focus integrates companies’ web servers and allows users to connect to the OneLogin Cloud Directory with all of the Cloud IAM features as well as provide secure access to legacy applications.
No doubt it was a great year for OneLogin, and it is exciting to see what great new things will bring this year!
