For a secure, always-available application experience [AX], Kemp has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), an ecosystem of independent software vendors that have integrated their solutions to better themselves against to protect against increasing cyber threats.
Kemp qualified to join MISA by integrating its LoadMaster Load Balancer with Microsoft Azure Active Directory. By using the Kemp LoadMaster for Azure AD , users can now benefit from Azure AD as a single identity provider and easily secure access for both cloud and on-premise applications via single sign-on.
“There is no silver bullet for cybersecurity in today’s IT environment. In view of the constantly changing threat landscape, cooperation and joint efforts are an absolute must. We are excited to join the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association. This is a sign of our commitment to improve the protection of our mutual customers, “ says Kurt Jung , Senior Product Strategy Manager at Kemp.
Many companies that have internally hosted cloud or on-premises applications need to ensure secure remote access while preventing unauthorized access. While cloud applications typically have native support for Azure AD, legacy apps can be more difficult to protect.
With Azure AD integration, administrators can leverage the pre-authentication capabilities of LoadMaster to protect and manage access to these mission-critical legacy applications. Legacy applications, along with all other company applications, are also accessible via single sign-on.
“The members of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association are integrating their security solutions with those of Microsoft to gain more insight, increase transparency and have better protection against threats. By extending Microsoft’s security capabilities across the ecosystem, we’re helping our mutual customers succeed, “ said Rani Lofstrom, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Microsoft Security.
