About this release

Cloud Access Manager delivers real productivity gains to your end users, while minimizing the effort needed to control access to your on-premise applications and cloud service accounts. Cloud Access Manager offers:

  • Password wallet and identity federation functions that provide your users with the convenience of single sign-on to all applications, whether they run on your private network or in the public cloud.
  • Web access management functionality using its web proxy technology, allowing you to expose your internal web applications securely to external users.
  • An easy-to-use customizable application portal that provides your users with a convenient launchpad, allowing them to see and navigate to the applications they have access to.
  • Identity federation with home realm discovery that allows you to grant access to users in other forests within your own organization and in other external organizations.
  • For extra security you can configure Cloud Access Manager to require two-factor authentication for external users, or to protect sensitive applications.
  • Just-in-time provisioning which means that your users get access to the applications they need when they need them and not before, giving you cost savings in license seats, while at the same time reducing the administrative burden of application account provisioning.
  • vWorkspace integration to seamlessly bring application virtualization to the Cloud Access Manager environment, allowing vWorkspace application links to be displayed in the application portal, along with other web applications.
  • High availability deployment options for continuity of service and scalability to millions of users.

Cloud Access Manager 8.1.4 is a minor release.

New features

New features in Cloud Access Manager 8.1.4:

  • The newest versions of One Identity's on-premises products offer a mandatory One Identity Hybrid Subscription, which helps you transition to a hybrid environment on your way to the cloud.

This gives your organization immediate access to a number of cloud-delivered features and services, which expand the capabilities of Cloud Access Manager. When new products and features become available to One Identity Starling, the One Identity Hybrid Subscription allows you to use these immediately for Cloud Access Manager to add value to your subscription.
