A10 Networks Helps Financial Services Company Simplify Identity Management
A10's ID Series Network Identity Management Appliance Delivers Shinyoung Securities Single Source Provisioning to Simplify User Account Management
SAN JOSE, CA. - September 3, 2008 -- A10 Networks®, today announced that Shinyoung Securities, a financial services company based in Seoul, South Korea with around 2,000 managed users, successfully deployed A10's ID Series network identity management appliance to simplify user account management. Shinyoung Securities employs several data stores like Oracle, Microsoft SQL 2005, UNIX, and Microsoft Active Directory to make user changes as they occur. However a manual update process resulted in accurate updates not occurring. To solve the problem, Shinyoung Securities evaluated solutions from A10, Oracle and Sun and chose A10's ID Series.
A10's ID Series provides Shinyoung Securities an automatic simplified user management solution through centralized provisioning. Three primary factors made ID Series lead the pack:
- Ease of operation, due to no agents, custom scripts or APIs
- Hardware appliance based solution for ease of deployment
- Clear price for performance
"With A10's ID Series, we now have an identity management system that can update users across multiple systems even though they operate independently," said Tae-Joon Choo, IT Manager, for Shinyoung Securities. "ID Series offers a comprehensive amount of functionality for a fraction of the price of the other solutions on the market. Our user provisioning, de-provisioning and password management issues have been solved effectively."
Associated ID Series components available to Shinyoung Securities at no additional charge also include:
- User Self-Service Web Portal for Password Management: empowers users to reset passwords based on answering reset questions, or change passwords to multiple disparate systems when a primary password is entered.
- Enterprise RADIUS Authentication Server: allows authentication to multiple backend data stores for authentication consolidation.
- Identity Tracking with IP-to-ID: resolves IP or MAC addresses to user identity instantly.
"The ID Series appliances offer an easy-to-use centralized user management system for Shinyoung Securities," said Lee Chen, founder and CEO for A10 Networks. "ID Series ensures accurate user updates across multiple data stores automatically. We are pleased with the successful deployment of our ID Series to improve Shinyoung Securities' business efficiency."
