Easy IAM Migration with Secfense IdP

Easy IAM migration with Secfense IdP

Many large organizations that we talk to often find themselves grappling with the challenge of distributed identities. Various IAM solutions such as Entra ID (previously Azure AD), Okta, or OneLogin offer unique functionalities, resulting in the use of multiple IAM tools within the same organization. However, this multi-identity approach can lead to problems such as increased costs, security risks, and organizational chaos. In this article, we present the Secfense approach to easy IAM migration with the use of Secfense IdP.

IAM Migration Problem

Enterprise Architects, IAM Specialists, and Application Owners responsible for conducting an IAM migration from one IAM provider to another may encounter tons of challenges. These include complex and costly complete migrations, helpdesk overload, and the risk of compromising security during the transition.

Reasons for IAM migration

However, what prompts a company to undertake an IAM migration in the first place? Organizations may opt to migrate from one IAM solution to another, like moving from Microsoft Entra ID (formerly Azure AD) to Okta, for various reasons. These reasons could include seeking improved functionality, more robust security features, competitive pricing, better technical support, meeting compliance requirements, or as part of infrastructure consolidation. Ultimately, the decision to migrate hinges on individual preferences, company objectives, and specific needs, making it crucial to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of available options and conduct a proper analysis before proceeding with the migration.

Using multiple IAMs

At times, organizations opt to employ multiple IAM solutions, such as Okta and Entra ID (formerly Azure AD), either to leverage specific functionalities of each IAM platform or to prepare for a future migration. Each IAM solution boasts distinctive features and integrations with diverse applications. The utilization of different IAMs allows companies to cherry-pick the most advantageous aspects from each, resulting in a more adaptable IAM strategy. This approach enables organizations to surmount constraints imposed by a single vendor and deliver optimal solutions tailored to the needs of different user groups and applications.

We are faced with new challenges every day. We must always be one step ahead of the attackers and know what they are going to do before they do it. We are convinced that the User Access Security Broker will bring security to a new level, both for those working at the office and from home. For us, working with Secfense is an opportunity to exchange experience with developers who put great value on out-of-the-box thinking.

As part of the pre-implementation analysis, we verified that users utilize a wide range of client platforms: desktop computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and traditional mobile phones. Each of these devices differs in technological advancement, features, and level of security. Because of this, and also due to the recommendation of the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (UKNF), we decided to introduce additional protection in the form of multi-factor authentication mechanisms based on FIDO. As a result, users of our applications can log in safely, avoiding common cyber threats such as phishing, account takeover, and theft of their own and their clients’ data.

Before investing in Secfense, we had the opportunity to talk to its existing clients. Their reactions were unanimous: wow, it’s so easy to use. We were particularly impressed by the fact that implementing their solution does not require the involvement of IT developers. It gives Secfense a huge advantage over the competition, and at the same time opens the door to potential customers who so far were afraid of changes related to the implementation of multi-factor authentication solutions.

Even when the network and infrastructure are secured enough, social engineering and passwords can be used to gain control of the system by attackers. Multifactor authentication is the current trend. Secfense addresses this and allows you to build zero trust security and upgrade your current systems to passwordless applications within minutes, solving this problem right away,” said Eduard Kučera, Partner at Presto Ventures and cybersecurity expert – former Director in hugely successful Czech multinational cyber security firm Avast.

One of the biggest challenges the world is facing today is securing our identity online. That’s why we were so keen to have Secfense in our portfolio. They make it possible to introduce strong authentication in an automated way. Until now, organizations had to selectively protect applications because the deployment of new technology was very hard, or even impossible. With Secfense, the implementation of multi-factor authentication is no longer a problem, and all organizations can use the highest standards of authentication security.

Two-factor authentication is known to be one of the best ways to protect against phishing; however, its implementation has always been difficult. Secfense helped us solve that problem. With their security broker, we were able to introduce various 2FA methods on our web applications at once.
