SSO and the Cloud

At the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Congress last week and there were several vendors offering Identity as a Service/SSO tools. I’ve also been looking at potential tools for customers. Based on the material I’ve read and talks with some of their engineers, Symplified (http://www.symplified.com/) looks like a good tool. They also recently announced a partnership with CipherCloud who provides encryption and tokenization services. Ping Identity is another tool I’ve researched but not tested (https://www.pingidentity.com). Domain 12 (Identity, Entitlement, & Access management) of the recently released CSA Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Focus in Cloud Computing V3.0 has some good information on Identity in the cloud and things to look for when choosing a vendor.
