MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 11, 2014) - Authentic8, maker of Silo, the cloud-based secure browser for businesses, has released Silo DirSync, a framework to integrate and synchronize data between Silo and Microsoft Active Directory. Silo DirSync is designed for large enterprises with geographically dispersed teams that have a need to simplify management of access to sensitive web data. Read the press release here.
With Silo DirSync, Organizations Get Centralized User Management and a "Kill Switch" for Their Critical Web Services
Since the web was not designed around comprehensive security, it has become of paramount importance to safeguard access to sensitive data as more organizations embrace the cloud. Chief among the risks is the browser, which is inherently vulnerable due to its indiscriminate handling of all types of web content. With Silo, administrators get command and control over web-based applications. And, Silo users get the full benefit of web-based apps without undermining security or compliance policies.
With Silo, sensitive web data is accessed within a completely insulated and sterile cloud-based browser, away from exploits on the user's device, the network or the web at large. Furthermore, Silo delivers secure single sign-on to web services, and administrators can enforce policies for controlling access to web data.
With today's release of Silo DirSync, organizations can now connect Silo to their existing directory infrastructures, creating a single switch to manage account access.
"Teams are increasingly fluid, and when employees or consultants join projects or rotate, it's time-consuming and error-prone to manage access to each and every one of their web accounts," says Ramesh Rajagopal, president at Authentic8. "With Silo DirSync, it becomes foolproof to terminate or suspend a user in the company directory and know that access to all their sensitive web apps have been revoked instantaneously."
Silo DirSync is being offered from today as an integrated feature of Silo for Teams, which costs $15 per user per month. It is available now at www.authentic8.com.
