South Africa’s Integralis, an identity and access management specialists, has partnered with tech firm Datacentrix to launch MyPass – a premium cloud password management solution.
MyPass centralises and simplifies the process of user password resetting, empowering organisations with a self-service tool that ensures the strongest security, compliance and governance standards are followed.
Using flexible authentication options, which includes one-time PIN codes, challenge responses questions, code cards and more; MyPass allows users to reset their own passwords whenever and wherever they want to.
In the event that helpdesk support is required, the solution provides companies and managed service providers with the ability to provide quick assistance from one central point while ensuring that support agents have no visibility of user passwords, or any other confidential information.
The companies said in a statement that MyPass smoothly integrates – without any need for custom development – with a vast range of business systems, including the likes of Oracle, all SAP environments, Microsoft, Novell, Linux, and more.
MyPass is the cloud-based incarnation of the highly successful Danish software, FastPass – traditionally delivered on-premise. As exclusive partners of FastPass Corporation, Integralis saw the opportunities to team up with Datacentrix and provide local clients the choice of on-premise or cloud-based models.
Hosted within Datacentrix’ highly-mature local cloud platform, which is scalable, self-service driven and operated on a pay-per-use basis, MyPass provides this essential foundation.
“It gives organisations great flexibility, access to a rich feature set, and the ability to extend the service to remote users, wherever they may be,” said Jacques Viljoen, solutions architect: managed services at Datacentrix.
With MyPass, all access management activity is automatically logged for ease of auditing. South African firms operating in the financial services space, or those listed on the JSE, already have a range of local and global compliance and governance regulations to follow.
MyPass has been developed to ensure compliance with all of these legislations and standards.
“Further to this, as a locally-hosted solution, data sovereignty considerations are addressed – so that firms of all sizes and in all industries get peace-of-mind that they’re complying with legislation such as the Protection of Personal Information Act (PoPI),” said Almero Steyn, technical director at Integralis.
