RadiantOne: Identity Integration for Zero-Trust and Digital Transformation

Transition to a fully distributed and agile digital enterprise is increasingly seen as a matter of organizational survival. The COVID-19 pandemic overwhelmed any lingering doubt about its urgency. It is also clear that a new cyber-security model is required to secure the assets of the digital enterprise. That model is Zero-Trust Architecture, and in ZTA, identity is the new security perimeter. Enterprises will have to step up their identity information-management game to avoid gaps in this perimeter, and to realize the full dynamic potential of doing business digitally. Radiant Logic's RadiantOne suite integrates identity information across the enterprise, standardizing and synchronizing a logically centralized repository of identities.
