Developed to meet today’s security and business challenges

Cloudonomics Journal on Ulitzer

Lighthouse Security Group has launched a new website, www.DiscoverLighthouseGateway.com, dedicated to helping organizations explore the benefits of Lighthouse Gateway, a cloud-based Identity and Access Management (IAM) service. Developed to meet today’s security and business challenges, Lighthouse Gateway delivers all the benefits of a complete IAM infrastructure without the cost and burden of purchasing, deploying and maintaining an on-premise infrastructure.

“With more leading companies leveraging the Gateway solution than ever, we wanted to provide customers with a comprehensive overview of this unique solution in an easy-to-navigate, interactive format,” said Eric Maass, Enterprise Security Solutions Director at Lighthouse. “Our new website, with comprehensive information on cloud computing, a TCO calculator and other tools, illustrates how the Gateway approach enables us to deliver a best-of-breed, turnkey solution cost-effectively.”

Main features of the website include:

  • Preview of the Gateway features
  • Gateway Integration Topology
  • Technical Specifications
  • Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Calculator
  • Customer Testimonials and Industry Awards

IAM has become a critical component of today’s security infrastructure due to heightened risks, regulatory compliance and corporate responsibility. Lighthouse Gateway affords companies the benefit of a compliant, industry-leading, open standards-based IAM solution at a fraction of the cost of deploying a conventional on-premise infrastructure. On average, Lighthouse Gateway will cost companies 30 to 60 percent less over the first three years of operation when compared to the full cost of ownership of a traditional IAM platform.

The website explains Lighthouse Gateway’s IAM capabilities and its foundation on IBM’s world-class Tivoli Identity and Access Management software. A graphical depiction of Gateway’s topology serves to educate potential customers as to how Gateway interfaces with their current IT infrastructure, and a Gateway Preview provides customers with a visual and technical understanding of the technology. The “Value Proposition” tab discusses the benefits of Gateway’s IAM cloud services, and the TCO calculator is a useful tool for customers comparing this service to traditional solutions.

“This website is designed to provide a convenient, interactive education on the features and benefits of the Lighthouse Gateway solution,” said Maass. “Leading companies are using Gateway to fulfill their mission-critical IAM requirements. We encourage organizations in need of an IAM solution to explore the site and learn what Lighthouse Gateway has to offer.”
