Kaseya, the leading provider of complete IT management solutions for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and small to midsized businesses (SMBs), today announced the immediate availability of the latest release of Kaseya AuthAnvil on-demand. Delivering a new level of security all within a single identity and access management (IAM) solution, the technology now provides easy single sign on (SSO), multifactor authentication (MFA) and automated user provisioning for Microsoft Office 365.

Microsoft Office 365 commercial subscriptions have ballooned in 2016, up 40 percent from the previous year to 85 million subscribers. As companies around the world continue to embrace the shift to the cloud, millions of Microsoft Office 365 corporate users now have access to Kaseya AuthAnvil’s patented password management, MFA and SSO capabilities to further secure both employee and customer environments in the cloud.

SSO support for Office 365 adds one of the most popular business applications to Kaseya’s growing library of thousands of applications supported by AuthAnvil. The technology provides end users the simplicity and time savings of securely signing in once to access all applications without having to remember multiple passwords, accounts and login information. With its MFA capabilities, Kaseya AuthAnvil provides an added, easy to use layer of security to protect businesses from increasingly common password breaches at popular services and sites, such as LinkedIn, Dropbox, Yahoo and others. Kaseya’s MFA supports common end-user devices, such as Apple iOS, Android phones and tablets, Windows 10 or the new U2F protocol, and meets the latest requirements of NIST 800-60 for mobile MFA, HIPAA, FFIEC and PCI standards.

Kaseya AuthAnvil goes beyond security, compliance and usability by automatically provisioning Office 365 user accounts as part of the authentication process. By directly tying into a company’s existing Active Directory or other user directory, AuthAnvil can automate both Office 365 user provisioning and privileges assignment. As a result, IT administrators no longer have the burden of having to create user accounts and assign common services and privileges – such as SharePoint, OneDrive and mail.

Additionally, Kaseya introduces an industry-first with its risk-based network and application authentication process engine. This technology makes it simple for administrators to create fine grained compliance controls for users, networks and applications. Using a simple, visual, policy interface, administrators can quickly and easily create authentication rules using a risk-based approach. Access can be controlled not only based on any user attribute, but also based on geo-location, time, type of network or individual application usage.
