As organizations continue to modernize their IT infrastructure and move towards cloud-based solutions, many are faced with the challenge of migrating applications that still rely on on-premise identity management systems like CA SiteMinder.
The Challenge of Legacy WAM Solutions
CA SiteMinder is a popular legacy web access management (WAM) solution that has been widely used for over two decades. However, as organizations are moving to modern Single Sign-On (SSO) protocols like SAML and OIDC, SiteMinder is no longer able to provide the same level of security and user experience that modern solutions like Microsoft Azure AD can offer.
Solutions for Migrating Legacy Applications
So, what options do organizations have for migrating their legacy applications that work with SiteMinder?
One approach is to rewrite the applications to support modern SSO protocols. However, this can be a costly and time-consuming process, especially if the applications are old or the original developers are no longer available. Another option is to replace the apps, but that could be very expensive, not to mention the business disruption that it can cause.
Another option is to use a proxy solution like Datawiza Access Proxy, a Microsoft Azure partner, to bridge the gap between SiteMinder and Azure AD. With Datawiza Access Proxy, organizations can easily and seamlessly migrate their applications to Azure AD without the need to rewrite them or replace them.
The Benefits of Using Datawiza Access Proxy
- Easy to use and implement, reducing the complexity of migration
- High-performance, ensuring smooth operation of your applications
- Cost-effective, eliminating the need for expensive app rewriting or replacement
The Benefits of Azure AD
By using Datawiza Access Proxy, organizations can take advantage of the many benefits that Azure AD provides, such as:
- Advanced security features, like modern SSO, MFA, conditional access
- Scalability and reliability
- Integration with other Azure services
In conclusion, migrating applications that work with CA SiteMinder to Azure AD is a smart move for organizations that want to improve security, reduce costs, and provide a better user experience. With Datawiza Access Proxy, organizations can easily and seamlessly migrate their applications to Azure AD without the need to rewrite them or replace them, and take advantage of the many benefits that Azure AD provides.
