Rock Hill, SC, September 13, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Akku is an Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution that offers features including single sign-on, password policy enforcement, IP- and device-based restrictions, multi-factor authentication and YouTube filtering. It provides companies with complete control over data access and privacy on the cloud while ensuring that they stay compliant to statutory industry standards.
Here is a brief overview of Akku’s key functionalities:
Identity Management/Single Sign-on (SSO)
By signing in to Akku, a user can instantly access all cloud-based applications that they have been granted permission to access. Akku therefore acts as the Identity Provider (IdP), saving users the time and effort of remembering multiple passwords otherwise needed to sign in to each application individually. For the company’s administrators, it also becomes a single point of control for user accounts and permissions.
Password Policy Enforcement
An extension of the above feature, with Akku set up as the company’s IdP, it is possible to enforce a custom password policy to ensure that users’ passwords are strong enough to prevent hacking and the subsequent compromise of sensitive data.
IP- & Device-based Restrictions
With its customized SAML, Akku enables administrators to limit access to company applications only from specific networks or devices. The secure certificate-based architecture of Akku is tamper-proof and also allows administrators to revoke access to any user as soon as an unusual activity is detected.
With multi-factor authentication, an additional layer of security is integrated into the sign-in process. Users are required to use a one-time password, fingerprint scan, retina scan, or a Yubikey in addition to their password in order to access applications or data.
Offering unmoderated internet access to employees can take a toll on an organisation’s bandwidth. Akku’s web proxy feature enables the administration to enforce a partial restriction on YouTube videos based on Channel ID and Category.
Personal email blocking and website filtering are a few other functionalities that Akku offers to enhance productivity and security while working on the cloud.
Akku also comes with a 24x7 dedicated support service to provide hands-on deployment support as well as operational support through a dedicated team of professionals. With this service, Akku makes it easy for integrating legacy on-premise applications with a company’s cloud environment. This eliminates the need for third party integrators to deploy the solution.
