Press Releases

Welcome to the new Press Releases forum! Our old press release system has been retired but we've moved everything and everyone to a new, shinier home. Enjoy!

A press release must be written for the purpose of announcing something newsworthy. Advertisements, promotions, or anything smelling even vaguely of spam will be deleted. All press releases must be relevant to the development community.

ELM implements single sign-on with WSO2 Identity Server to streamline administration, improve productivity, and reduce costs of Saudi Arabia’s Unemployment Assistance Program

Palo Alto, CA – December 4, 2013 – WSO2 today announced that ELM, a trusted provider of secure electronic services in Saudi Arabia, has implemented WSO2 Identity Server (http://wso2.com/products/identity-server/). ELM now relies on WSO2 Identity Server to manage users of the system supporting the Saudi national Unemployment Assistance Program, and ensure secure online transactions. A new case study that describes the implementation can be downloaded by visiting http://tinyurl.com/ELMCaseStudy.

The new ELM case study from WSO2 describes the technology drivers for moving to single sign-on (SSO), key architectural decisions, and how the implementation was completed in two months. Among the topics covered in the case study are how:

• ELM examined the differences between OpenID and the Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0 (SAML 2.0), and ultimately selected OpenID.
• The architecture combines SSO through WSO2 Identity Server and two firewalls to provide users with secure access to the Unemployment Assistance Program system.
• Role-based access control (RBAC) convention, fine-grained policy based access control, and SSO bridging, help to reduce identity provisioning time, guarantee secure online interactions, and deliver a reduced single sign-on environment.
• ELM’s SSO implementation has helped to improve productivity, centralize management and reporting, and reduce helpdesk costs while increasing security.

“The SSO environment implemented with WSO2 Identity Server has fully met our expectations and is enabling us to realize the goals we set out for simplifying our user identity administration,” said Abdullah Al Tahhan, a senior project manager at ELM. “We are quite pleased with WSO2’s technology, but more than anything, when we think of future engagements, we are going to think of WSO2 because of the great support.”

“As a recognized innovator in delivering safe e-services via electronic portals for government and financial sectors, ELM understands first-hand the importance of simplifying access while offering uncompromised security,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, WSO2 founder and CEO. “We are excited by ELM’s success in using WSO2 Identity Server to provide single sign-on for Hafiz system users. Now it is easier than ever to access Hafiz services while protecting the data of the Saudi government and the citizens they serve.”
