ISR America to Launch CloudGate Key Manager, SSH Key Management Service at AWS re:Invent

October 28th, 2017

ISR America will feature the CloudGate Key Manager demo at Booth #1406.

Las Vegas, USA: ISR America Ltd, a Single Sign-On (SSO) and security solutions provider, announced today at the sixth annual AWS re:Invent, the launch of CloudGate Key Manager, its new access control solution for Linux based instances. This Secure Shell (SSH) key management solution connects to CloudGate UNO, ISR’s flagship product, which has had over a billion secure logins and a 99.99% service availability for the last 4 years.  

In Japan, CloudGate is the SSO top share provider with more than 680,000 users within 1,500 companies.  CloudGate UNO launched US sales this past month and with its Reliable, Affordable, Strong Authentication, intends to gain market share in the US as well.  A limited CloudGate UNO and CloudGate Key Manager free 30-day trial will be available on December 4, 2017.

“Secure Shell (SSH) key management or lack thereof has been a serious problem that had not been properly addressed. With CloudGate Key Manager, we introduce features that allow you to control the lifetime of your SSH key and easily create, reset and revoke keys according to your needs,” says Raul Mendez-CEO, ISR.

With more computing resources moving off-premise and into the cloud, controlling access becomes critical. To boost SSH security, moving from username/password authentication to public key authentication is an important first step, but provisioning authorized keys to a large number of instances proves to be a challenge. This often results in a wild growth of long-lived keys, shared by multiple users and instances, which puts the entire infrastructure at risk. As a solution, CloudGate Key Manager reduces this risk and provides a secure audit trail for SOX compliance.

CloudGate Key Manager addresses these problems by issuing short-lived keys to individual users that are also flexible and can restrict access to certain resources by user or group. This can be done with only minimal changes to existing SSH hosts.

CloudGate Key Manager Key features:

  • Control the lifetime of users’ SSH keys
  • Implement fine-grained access control
  • Enforce Strong Authentication with CloudGate UNO
