F5 Networks BIG-IP Access Policy Manager — Password Management
If your users have to create a password for every app they use, chances are they aren’t going to create a unique password every time. That makes it easier for attackers to break into your apps and steal your company’s data. BIG-IP APM SDN lets you federate user identity and enables Single Sign-On (SSO), simultaneously enhancing and securing access. And that’s true wherever your apps are located — data center, cloud, or hybrid environment. Using the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) standard, BIG IP APM — serving as both a SAML identity provider (IdP) and service provider — allows user credentials to remain safe and secure in one place, while a trusted token is passed to applications when a user signs in. BIG IP APM can also handle authentication to all your apps. It supports multiple authentication methods, including Multi Factor Authentication (MFA), so users sign in once and can securely access the apps they need to do their jobs — apps like Microsoft Office or Office 365, Exchange, SharePoint, Salesforce, and more.
