Most organizations have realized that the GDPR countdown has started and that they need to be able to prove they compliantly handle the privacy data of EU citizens, or risk heavy fines and image loss, among others.
Organizations have realized that they need an EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant access governance solution to address vital challenges. They also know they need a solution in place by May 25 2018. Consequently, Omada experiences a strong uptake of its unique governance solution as-a service, which addresses precisely these issues.
“Omada provides an excellent enterprise grade governance solution running on Azure. The Omada solution, in combination with Azure AD Premium for single sign on and authentication, offers the full palette of functions required for organizations in one single, strong combined package”, says Claus Jul Christiansen, Director for Partners & SMCs at Microsoft Denmark. “The Omada GDPR SaaS solution is a great example of how the partnership between Microsoft and Omada has evolved and is used to create great value for organizations. The Omada solution is fueled by Azure cloud, and it utilizes strong Azure features such as geo-redundancy and in general benefits from the high security standards provided in Azure.”
The future-proof solution
Omada and Microsoft announced a strategic alliance in late 2017 and in connection with the announcement, Alex Simons, Director, Product Management, Microsoft Identity Division, Microsoft Corp. said, “The Omada platform is built on Microsoft technology and is the perfect fit for Azure Active Directory Premium. The two solutions combined give customers a future-proof, and easy-to-use, identity management and access governance solution across on-premises and cloud.”
Creating even greater value to the customers
In 2017, Omada was also named Microsoft Security Partner of the Year in the Danish market – a recognition that underlines the strong partnership.
“More and more organizations appreciate that the Omada GDPR Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution allows organizations to demonstrate progress and obtain significant value in just a few months, providing a fast track to get in control of their privacy data and demonstrate compliance with easy-to-use, easy-to-manage dashboards,” says Morten Boel Sigurdsson, Founder of Omada. “The solution provides full provisioning and lifecycle governance capabilities across all enterprise systems on-premises and in the cloud, and is created to meet today’s business and technology needs and drivers as it is delivered as-a-service and drives down the total cost of ownership”.
Morten Boel Sigurdsson continues: “Azure is a powerful cloud, and we are very pleased to have chosen Azure as the platform of choice. It enables us to scale the capacity of our solution to meet our client’s needs and we look forward to expanding our solution even further, servicing even more clients in the future, as they increasingly realize what they can accomplish with this solution.”
