For Cybersecurity & Financial Access Rights Management, RadiantOne a Key Component in NIST/ NCCOE Architecture


RadiantOne FID was included in The National Cybersecurity Center of
Excellence (NCCoE)'s best-of-breed reference architecture for Access
Rights Management (ARM) in the financial services sector

Radiant Logic (,
the market-leading provider of federated identity solutions based on
, today announced that its flagship product,
RadiantOne FID, was included in The National Cybersecurity Center of
(NCCoE)'s best-of-breed reference architecture for Access
Rights Management
(ARM) in the financial services sector.

Under the auspices of the National Institute of Standards and Technology
(NIST), NCCoE worked with experts from the financial services
sector and technology partners to develop a Practice Guide for the
financial services industry that featured a best-of-breed ARM reference

"The challenge is maintaining a high level of security in the face of
near-constant change," says Doug Simmons, Principal Consulting Analyst
and Managing Director at TechVision Research. Common scenarios that
require changes to a user's access privileges include hiring a new
employee, reassigning an existing employee, and deprovisioning an
employee upon departure. "This process is more difficult when your
infrastructure is distributed and heterogeneous," says Simmons.

The reality is that today's large financial organizations often have
identity infrastructures made up of many diverse types of identity data
stores. Identity data and management tasks could be spread across an
array of business units, including HR, IT, and regulatory departments.
Because of this complexity, changes to user's access rights often
require manual and custom coding, both of which are expensive, time
consuming, and could introduce errors.

The NCCoE addressed these challenges by including Radiant Logic's
federated identity and directory service, RadiantOne FID, in its ARM
reference architecture. "We are pleased to be included along with
Splunk, HyTrust, NextLabs, AlertEnterprise, Vanguard Integrity
Professionals, and TDi Technologies. These best-of-breed solutions are
available today and the ARM architecture shows how they work together to
provide a higher level of security, while improving flexibility and
speed for financial institutions," says Michel Prompt, CEO and Founder
of Radiant Logic.

RadiantOne FID boosts the security and the speed of identity
infrastructures by using the power of virtualization to integrate all of
a user's identity data from across diverse identity stores to create an
identity hub with a complete profile for each user. RadiantOne is the
key identity layer to provide faster and stronger authentication and
smarter authorization for large corporations and organizations.
