FYI, this story is more than a year old

One Identity has acquired OneLogin, a provider of Identity Access Management (IAM) solutions, to expand the scope of One Identity's Unified Identity Security Platform.

OneLogin provides product functionality across both workforce and Customer Identity Access Management (CIAM) use cases, delivering time-to-value in the cloud, on-prem, and hybrid environments.

The combined OneLogin and One Identity customer bases represent a large cross-section of global enterprises. One Identity manages more than 250 million identities for 5,000 organisations, whereas OneLogin manages more than 40 million identities for 5,500 customers, according to the company.

One Identity states that the acquisition of OneLogin will enable customers to take a holistic approach to identity security with technology in each major category.

The new technology will be combined with One Identity's existing Privileged Access Management (PAM), Identity Governance and Administration (IGA), and Active Directory Management and Security (ADMS) solutions.

The enhancements to these four pillars of cybersecurity includes the following:

Privileged Access Management (PAM): One Identity Safeguard offers privileged accounts, giving organisations a secure way to store, manage, authenticate, record, audit and analyse privileged access.

Identity Governance and Administration (IGA): One Identity Manager governs identities and access for on-prem, hybrid and cloud environments to satisfy audit and compliance initiatives, and to provide management with a clear view of internal, external and privileged accounts.

AD Management and Security: One Identity Active Roles deploys critical AD account management capabilities, such as provisioning, group and roles management, password management, and governance.

Identity - Access Management (IAM): OneLogin's cloud-first IAM solution provides everything businesses need to secure their workforce, partners, and customers while increasing operational efficiency and accelerating digital transformation efforts.

One Identity president and general manager Bhagwat Swaroop says, “With the proliferation of human and machine identities, the race to the cloud and the rise of remote working, identity is quickly becoming the new edge - and protecting identity in an end-to-end manner has never been more important.

“By adding OneLogin to our portfolio, and incorporating it into our cloud-first Unified Identity Security Platform, we can help customers holistically correlate all identities, verify everything before granting access to critical assets and provide real-time visibility into suspicious login activity.

"With identity at the core, customers can now implement an adaptive zero trust strategy and dramatically improve their overall cybersecurity posture.

OneLogin CEO Brad Brooks says, “Joining One Identity provides us with the ability to further accelerate our growth and provide additional value for both of our customers.

“With OneLogin's robust unified platform for both workforce and CIAM, combining forces with One Identity's suite of products including their PAM solution, will allow new and existing customers, on a global scale, to tap into the market's only unified identity security platform.
