Access Management for Mobile Devices

Preventing a decline in productivity of a mobile workforce unable to access corporate data, this global pharmaceutical company provided mobile device access to 12 critical applications without compromising data security.

Company Overview

A global healthcare company with 90 years of innovation and leadership in diabetes care with approximately 38,000 employees in 75 countries, and marketing its products in more than 180 countries.

Business Challenges

The customer's 3,000 mobile US workforce required secure mobile access to corporate data in order to work productively with clients in the field. Its single sign on solution, Open SSO, was unsupported and unable to provide mobile access. With 12 applications utilizing Open SSO, and more to be onboarded, the customer needed an updated access management solution to provide single sign-on and simplify their IAM infrastructure.

Hub City Media's Solution

The customer selected Hub City Media to install and configure Oracle Access Manager (OAM), Oracle Access Manager Mobile & Social (OAMMS), and Oracle Identity Federation (OIF) to enable single sign-on, session management, and centralized policy administration on IOS or Windows Native Authentication (WNA) devices. Also installed was Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) to present a single unified LDAP view of credentials and data from existing Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition (ODSEE) and Microsoft Active Directory (AD) servers.

Results

With OSSO replaced by the Oracle Identity and Access solution, the customer provides secure access and single sign-on to 12 critical applications on IOS and Microsoft devices. This enabled its mobile workforce to effectively work with clients in the field and improve productivity.
