Avatier Turns Microsoft Outlook Into Identity Access Management Platform to Secure Remote Collaboration
PLEASANTON, Calif., May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Avatier Corporation, the pioneers of work from anywhere (WFA) Identity Governance & Administration (IGA) cloud service delivered as a container, today announced the release of Avatier for Outlook, giving users passwordless Single Sign-On (SSO) and unified Identity Access Management (IAM) from within Outlook to make remote work more secure. Avatier for Outlook improves workforce efficiency by providing a unified approach to manage access to any application, approve workflows and review user rights, all conveniently located with the email, calendar and contacts you use every day.
Over 400 million people use Microsoft Outlook. By designing Avatier IAM and IGA to be deployed and run within Outlook, users can connect, provision and audit any identity or app wherever they work best, whether on a desktop, web browser, or mobile device. For users, Avatier for Outlook provides a means to request access to any cloud or enterprise application or resource without having to leave their email. For IT managers, Avatier for Outlook provides a no-code, frictionless approach to consolidate identity management and security authorization for provisioning, deprovisioning and auditing using existing directories, so you don't have to add another layer of complexity. Since Avatier is built using container technology it is platform-independent and portable to futureproof your investment. Avatier for Outlook offers best-of-breed password management, user provisioning, and access governments in one solution at a fraction of what it would cost to license individual software solutions to provide the same functionality.
"Now that more employees are working remotely, organizations need new enterprise access solutions that control security while promoting productivity," said Nelson Cicchitto, founder and CEO of Avatier. "By delivering Avatier as an extension of Outlook, organizations can impose identity access security as part of their most commonly used collaboration platform. The result is greater security and increased productivity since Avatier works anywhere you use Outlook."

Integrating IAM into collaboration tools such as Outlook offers a logical approach that simplifies IAM while maintain strong security."
