Cloud Security Service

Single sign-on

Remember just one user name and password to access all authorized SaaS applications. Our solution uses industry standards to enable single sign-on using your customer's enterprise identity infrastructure. Read more ›

Comprehensive audit logs

Audit logging is critical for customers and is by many regulatory bodies. Most SaaS applications do not provide any audit logs of user activity. With NCSS you provide tracking and reporting at a page level, from the cloud application back to the enterprise. Read more ›

Zero-day start/stop

One of the biggest concerns about using applications in the cloud is ensuring that accounts are deprovisioned in a timely manner when an employee leaves the organization. With NCSS, you can provide your customers with the peace of mind they need with zero-day start/stop deprovisioning that is enterprise directed. Read more ›

Authorization management

Your customers have roles and access information defined for their employees, contractors and partners that they need to enforce for SaaS applications. Today most SaaS applications have their own systems and processes for maintaining and managing roles and associated access that is separate from the enterprise system. This results in manual intervention each time an employee leaves or changes roles.

With NCSS, roles and attributes from your customer's identity system can be mapped to the SaaS applications. You can allow your customers to manage authorization as they do their authentication.

Just in time provisioning

For customers that don't need elaborate user account management in the SaaS applications or for customers that don't have an enterprise level provisioning system within the firewall, Cloud Security enables just-in-time provisioning. The receiving party—in this case the SaaS application which has the federation service—can recognize that the incoming user has never used the service previously, and does not have an account within the local account store. But the federation service can extract the data from the claims and send it to their provisioning service along with a request to create an account if it was needed. If the SaaS application does not make use of the data, it can at the very least provide a temporary user account that only stays for the duration of the session and when the user exists the account information also disappears. This kind of just in time provisioning can be useful in SaaS applications where the end-user does not have a need to actually have a need for a persistent account.

Dashboard management console

Managing a number of tenants or SaaS applications can result in high administrative costs. Furthermore, many manual processes take place to on-board each customer. Cloud Security Service provides a dashboard interface for both you and your customers to configure, monitor and control the applications and their usage. It has full multi-tenancy support, including billing and usage tracking support that enable you to scale applications and customers quickly. Read more ›

Customer's Dashboard

Out-of-the-box application connectors

SaaS applications today are built on a number of different platforms and technologies, which makes it hard to integrate these applications into a common management framework. There is always custom work involved with each new customer who is on-boarded to a SaaS application.

To address this issue, we have built deep, framework-level connectors for:

  • Applications that are written as Java Servlets
  • Applications that run on Apache including Perl, Python, PHP or Ruby on Rails
  • SharePoint and Exchange accessed from a thick client or through a web browser.

Security branding capabilities

We understand that you want to build your relationship and brand with your customer. You can brand all customer-facing screens with their logo and color schemes using easy drag and drop and palette features.
