PKWARE announced that it is integrating Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AD) Authentication to its PKWARE endpoint data security platform.
This recent integration provides a superior authentication process for workforces across all operating systems and device types.
Identity management is a foundational security layer for user access to secure systems. The integration with Azure AD provides security protection to PK Protect in two ways. First, administrators are authenticated using Azure AD to ensure only authenticated administrators can access the platform to create policies for encryption, classification, and/or redaction of sensitive data in files and email. Second, client systems authenticate through PK Protect with Azure AD to ensure protection policies, encryption keys, and operational instructions are delivered to the right clients.
Finally, adding integration with Azure AD supports companies looking to realize the advantages of using the cloud for their directory service.
“PKWARE is responding to customers who have asked us to deliver a more integrated experience for PK Protect with Microsoft Azure,” said Jason Dobbs, Chief Technology Officer for PKWARE. “This Azure AD integration builds on our continued support of Microsoft technologies, which currently includes Double Key Encryption (DKE), Microsoft Information Protection (MIP), SharePoint, OneDrive, and Outlook integrations.”
This new release will be available to PKWARE customers beginning October 31, 2022.
