OneLogin will be looking to raise its profile in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) after entering into a new distribution agreement with the Multipoint Group. Under the terms of the new agreement, representatives in Multipoint’s Dubai office will work directly with OneLogin to market the latter’s Trusted Experience Platform to interested customers in the region.
The Trusted Experience Platform is a comprehensive access control offering with Single Sign-On capabilities. In plain terms, that means that employees and end users only need to log in once in order to gain access to all of the applications they need to use at work. The platform offers support for numerous forms of multi-factor authentication, including one-time passwords, WebAuthn biometrics, and physical security keys like the YubiKey. It also benefits from OneLogin’s SmartFactor Authentication feature, which assigns a risk score to each interaction.
According to OneLogin, the Trusted Experience Platform was built to operate at scale, thanks to a HydraBoost feature that can field as many as one million authentication requests on a minute-by-minute basis. The company itself was listed as a Technology Leader in Kuppinger Cole’s 2020 Leadership Compass Report, and in Garnter’s 2020 Magic Quadrant Report. In both bases, OneLogin was recognized in the Access Management category.
“OneLogin brings to companies in the MEA area market-leading capabilities to secure access to the app, users, and devices across the organization,” said Multipoint MEA Operations Manager Vishal Bhatia. “OneLogin does that with ease of use that enables fast adoption and quicker ROI. OneLogin is a great addition to our Cyber Strong portfolio in UAE and the greater MEA market.”
OneLogin released a cloud-based access control solution to enable remote logins all the way back in 2019, several months before the outbreak of COVID-19 pushed people to transition to a work-from-home environment. The company has been a steady advocate of passwordless authentication protocols.
