2future, a company specialized in administration, risk and quality management solutions, and Emillion, a forerunner in security and usability in SaaS and Cloud services, have agreed on deploying Emillion’s Distal authentication solution in 2future’s CSM (Corporate Sustainability Management) Service.
2future CSM is a web based application for management and reporting of corporate social responsibility. 2future CSM is created in cooperation with leading, globally operating companies. CSM is used to manage economic, environmental and social responsibility and to communicate about it to different stakeholders.
Distal authentication gives SaaS providers an easy way to improve the user experience, automate user management and improve security. For SaaS end users it means that they can access SaaS applications by clicking a link in their intranet, without supplying credentials. When they click the link, Distal fetches selected user identity information from the intranet and passes it to the SaaS application. As a result, SaaS customers can control access to the SaaS application with their internal user directory and keep SaaS user profiles up-to-date automatically.
“As the social responsibility awareness is rising, the need for collecting and sharing information about the responsible operations of the company is growing. Automation of user management helps companies that are increasing transparency. With Distal we can offer our customers a direct link from their intranet to our CSM service”, says Juha Palomäki, CIO at 2future. “We looked for a solution, which is easy to deploy, and which gives maximal benefits to our customers. Now we get automated user management based on customers own AD as well SSO (Single sign-on) for end users with the same solution”, Palomäki continues.
“We enjoy supporting the possibility for companies and their employees to develop green values. The amount of SaaS services is currently growing fast, which has increase the need for our Distal solution. It is great that this time we get to support social values as well”, says Risto Korhonen, sales director at Emillion.
