Company

Datawiza is the first company to offer cloud-delivered Access Management as a Service (AMaaS) to secure applications and APIs based on Zero Trust architecture. The Datawiza Platform provides consolidated and continuous risk and trust assessment across hybrid multicloud environments. Unlike other access management products (e.g., legacy web access managers) that are complex and siloed, Datawiza offers large enterprises and SMBs a comprehensive, centralized and easy-to-deploy solution that allows every company to simplify access management, save time and increase security.

Today’s Challenge

In the era of Big Data, hybrid multicloud environments and evolving privacy regulations, businesses can no longer separate achieving trust through authentication (ensuring people are who they say they are) from reducing risk through authorization (ensuring only the right people have access to sensitive information). They must verify both each time a user accesses data based on continuously updated information – without hindering user productivity or requiring constant attention from security professionals.

Datawiza AMaaS

The Datawiza Platform includes two elements. The Datawiza Access Broker is a lightweight, cloud-native proxy for migrating applications to modern identity management (IM) platforms such as Azure AD, Azure AD B2C, and Auth0. It enables no-code/low-code SSO/MFA, as well as policy-defined, URL-level access controls across hybrid multicloud environments – based on detailed user and device attributes, such as group, role, IP, or browser. The Datawiza Cloud Management Console offers centralized management and configuration of access policies, including logging, visibility and analytics.

The solution provides an easy way to migrate header-based applications – such as Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle PeopleSoft, Microsoft SharePoint, Oracle WebLogic – deployed with legacy IM systems – such as CA SiteMinder, SAP, RSA on-premises LDAP – to modern IM systems without rewriting applications. It also enables developers to easily replace custom local authentication systems, such as basic auth, with modern protocols, such as OIDC/OAuth and SAML.

Datawiza increases security, reduces engineering costs by 10X, provides faster time to value for bringing applications into a Zero Trust environment, and future proofs the access management environment.
