451 Group Report on Intel Cloud SSO

As we introduced Intel Cloud SSO Beta last week at RSA conference, Steve Coplan, Senior Analyst with the 451 Group Enterprise Security Practice wrote a report on Intel’s solution.

Few highlights from the report:

  • Intel’s cloud access broker strategy, predicated on the convergence of authentication and federation with API governance, as well as roadmap integration of McAfee security functionality, makes for a compelling vision.
  • Intel is looking to make a splash by providing bundled pricing for application connectors, federated single sign-on (SSO) and authentication.
  • As we outlined some three years ago, by introducing a new network topology, cloud computing establishes the need for a new network device that we refer to as a cloud access gateway. As the API revolution takes hold, security and access management for the cloud is a stepping stone to solidifying Intel’s ambitions to addressing the opportunity.
