A Fortune 100 Media Company
A large media company was planning to deploy a new employee portal for full-time and contingent staff. The portal user identities resided in multiple disparate Active Directory (AD) domains and the portal required additional information from the HR systems as well as application-specific attributes in order to provide a highly personalized experience. The portal was aggregating resources from both internal and cloud-based systems, so it was imperative to provide a secure site experience without compromising performance.
CoreBlox solved the technical challenges with a unique solution integrating Radiant Logic Virtual Directory Server (VDS) and CA Single Sign-On. VDS allowed CoreBlox to establish a layer of abstraction from the data stores and build logic that wouldn't require any changes on the back end. CA Single Sign-On was then able to pull in VDS attributes for reference at authentication time.
The new directory and security infrastructure proved to be a winning combination for the media company. A universal user identity was established for all internal employees and contractors. Authentication times were kept to a minimum and, going forward, business solutions can be delivered faster and cheaper thanks to the flexibility of the virtual directory.
