CloudConnect Gateway

Simplify Single Sign-On & Integration to SaaS


The Layer 7 CloudConnect Gateway is an API Gateway with enhanced cloud adapters for simplified integration and orchestration with the cloud. The CloudConnect API Gateway allows organizations to securely consume SaaS and cloud-based services by providing not only secure Single Sign-On (SSO) but also secure data and application integration.

The CloudConnect API Gateway acts as an on-premise control point for managing how internal users and application assets are connected to outside SaaS services. By defining integration and security policies in the CloudConnect Gateway, enterprises can:

  • Implement fine-grained access control over which resources/users can interact with which SaaS applications
  • Manage API-level data and application mapping 

As a result, enterprises can govern how they consume SaaS applications while making those resources feel and operate like extended parts of the internal enterprise.

The CloudConnect Gateway simplifies cloud access by providing:

  • A central point for managing SSO to cloud services using enterprise IAM
  • Data mapping tools for easier data synchronization
  • Pre-made connectivity adapters for popular cloud services like Salesforce
  • A flexible API adapter for engineering access to any cloud service
  • Multi-cloud orchestration and brokering capabilities
  • Centralized cloud API usage tracking

Create Single Sign On for SaaS applications – utilizes existing enterprise directory and LDAP resources to log users and machines into SaaS applications, thereby creating a single point of maintenance for all users/machine ids across the extended enterprise, while eliminating potential security breaches that arise when employees leaving a company are removed from the enterprise IAM system but retain their SaaS login due to oversight.

Secure SaaS application integration – securely integrate enterprise applications and SaaS applications using Web services in order to ensure that internal/SaaS systems are always up to date.

Track SaaS Usage – knowing who in your organization is using SaaS applications how often can help you ensure compliance with industry and government regulations, as well as help optimize SaaS licensing.
