Cloud services are integrated via industry-standard SAML, meaning quick integration for thousands of services without locking into a proprietary interface. BlackBerry Enterprise Identity’s infrastructure is located in the cloud, freeing IT from having to manage, secure and scale the backend infrastructure. BlackBerry Enterprise Identity also supports deployments using Microsoft Azure AD.
Simple, Secure Identity Management
Cloud services are critical in today’s enterprises, yet a reliance on the cloud comes with real and growing security risks. Controlling access to your organization’s cloud services is vital, but identity management can be challenging for both IT and users.
BlackBerry® Enterprise Identity delivers access control designed to provide the security of traditional user authentication.
Enhance Employee Satisfaction and Productivity
BlackBerry Enterprise Identity delivers a superior single sign-on user experience. Employees can use one password for all cloud services, across all mobile devices (iOS, Android™ and BlackBerry®) and traditional computing platforms (Windows® and macOS). This eliminates the frustration of multiple passwords and logins, and users will only confront stronger methods when they’re a necessary security measure.
With BlackBerry Enterprise Identity’s Mobile Zero Sign-On feature, unlocking a managed device can automatically
unlock cloud services, making things easy for users.
Safeguard Your Sensitive Data
BlackBerry Enterprise Identity is designed to meet your organization’s stringent security needs in any given situation – while still offering simplicity and ease of use.
Your most sensitive data stays on premises, not in the cloud
All your connections to cloud services are consolidated into a single connection to the directory
You can easily deny access to certain users who aren’t authorized to use specific cloud services.
Integration with BlackBerry® 2FA allows you to secure critical cloud services with simple, high-security authentication where required to adapt to potential risk.
Combined with other software and services from BlackBerry, BlackBerry Enterprise Identity can also help you to comply with regulations, including the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Customize Authentication Methods
Based on your specific security scenario, BlackBerry Enterprise Identity allows you to choose the authentication method for any given service, user group, or combination of the two:
- Mobile Zero Sign-On (Mobile ZSO)
- Two-factor authentication with BlackBerry 2FA
Using stronger methods only where they’re needed makes them easier to deploy and more acceptable to your employees.
Advance Your Mobile Strategy
Legacy single sign-on systems were typically built in the desktop era, so they have shortcomings when it comes to mobility. They don’t offer cloud service support, don’t operate well across all devices, and often only work behind the firewall.
BlackBerry Enterprise Identity performs equally well on mobile devices and traditional computing platforms, even if the devices aren’t managed by UEM. It unifies and simplifies access to cloud services like Microsoft® Office 365™, Salesforce®, Google Apps™, BlackBerry® Workspaces, or most other SAML-based apps and services.
Leverage Your Existing EMM
BlackBerry Enterprise Identity is fully integrated with BlackBerry® UEM, giving you access to powerful features.
Send apps for cloud services to user devices and enable single sign-on with one click
Instantly revoke access to cloud services
Provide simple, high-security two-factor authentication to cloud services from any device with BlackBerry 2FA
Leverage the trust of UEM-managed devices to enable Mobile Zero Sign-On (Mobile ZSO)
Unify the connection to on-premises directories
Save Time and Money on Deployment and Management
BlackBerry Enterprise Identity integrates with your existing BlackBerry UEM, delivering powerful management via a single console that can be up and running in minutes. It’s a fully self-contained solution, so no new software is required, which minimizes upfront costs.
Quick Services Integration
Provisioning BlackBerry Enterprise Identity to any trusted user is quick and easy, even if they don’t have a mobile device or their device is managed by a third-party MDM. By federating user identities across cloud services, BlackBerry Enterprise Identity allows users to employ a single password they already use across all cloud services, eliminating the need for net new password resets by the help desk.
BlackBerry Enterprise Identity is featured in the Collaboration, Application and Content Editions of the BlackBerry® Enterprise Mobility Suite.
