Apprenda is built to seamlessly integrate with off the shelf or home grown enterprise identity, directory services, and authentication systems. This allows for seamless mapping of end users to guest applications hosted on your internal Apprenda PaaS instance.
Enterprise identity management, directory services, and authentication systems are well established pillars of most enterprise IT environments. Cataloging the identity and credentials of tens or even hundreds of thousands of users is the norm. Ensuring that your private PaaS can leverage your existing identity management and authentication systems is critical. This guarantees that your applications running on Apprenda can automatically be federated against your identity systems for authentication and authorization requests.
Being able to have a “plug and play” model for integrating your identity and SSO systems with the Apprenda PaaS is critical for a successful private cloud deployment.
