Local biometrics

Oftentimes employees do not have a phone nearby or do not want to use mobile device every single time they access applications. What is more most laptops today offer what is called platform biometric authenticators. For example an Apple MacBook will have a local fingerprint reader that can be used to authenticate employees.

That is why idemeum offers an option for employees to use these platform authenticators, which we call local biometric sensors to access applications and company resources without passwords from laptops, tablets, and desktop devices.

Application auto update

Auto detect mobile app upgrade and notify the user. Feature allows forced upgrade of the mobile application as well if the new version is available.

Fixes and improvements

  • Admin UI security settings to configure onboarding, local biometrics, and session duration
  • Automatically refresh the user portal on installation of browser extension
  • Reduce page zoom to 80%, increase viewport size, fix column padding and minor UI fixes
  • Fix critical and high CVEs found in the 3rd party libraries
  • Show alert to save QR code to the photo gallery when permission is denied for apple iCloud
  • Allow password applications to be added without user explicitly adding https scheme
  • Disable native HTML autocomplete in search fields
  • Improved product documentation and integration portals

Password Manager for any application

Previously we were supporting only certified applications with idemeum password manager. Right now we opened it up, so that users can add any password application they like. Simply create an app, provide URL, enter credentials and you are good to go. You can learn more here.

May 25, 2022

Admin controlled user recovery

We have now added support for another recovery method with admin approval. Today we support two options:

  • User self-service recovery – this option does not require any admin actions. User can self-recover using recovery QR-code that they store offline or in Cloud storage.
  • Admin controlled user recovery – this option is useful when users no longer have access to recovery QR-code. Users can request recovery from new device, and admins can approve the recovery request from admin portal.

Learn more in our documentation portal.

TOTP support for password applications

Our Passwordless Password Manager now support Time-based one-time password (TOTP) algorithm. If an application you are using supports TOTP, you can now add it as a second factor. For instance, you can login to GitHub by auto-filling credentials and also autofilling TOTP code as a second factor.

SOC2 Type 1 compliance

We have achieved a milestone of becoming SOC2 Type 1 compliant. We are committed to our highest level security practices, and we continually improve our security posture, including penetration testing, compliance, and mode. You can always refer to our security page and security white-paper.

We hid all advanced fields and made sure admins only need to input the minimal set of parameters. For some apps we truly preconfigured them where nothing needs to be manually entered.

New idemeum integrations portal

We are excited to share that we updated our integrations catalog.

Now it can be accessed via separate URL – https://integrations.idemeum.com

We have improved styling, navigation, search, and discoverability of idemeum integrations. With top bar counters you can easily see how many and what types of integrations we are supporting today. We are constantly adding new integration across various categories.

Oct 11, 2021

Rule based entitlements

With Rule Based Entitlements you can assign application to certain groups of users and have granular control for who has access to what. idemeum integrates closely with HR system of your choice and will pull information such as role, department, or country. You can use this information to assign applications to employees.

The rules are organized based on if/then statements for ease of creation and maintenance. For instance, you can create a rule that entitles every Operations Manager to certain set of applications.

idemeum stays in sync with HRMS system, and if the information in your HR system changes (new departments, updated employee records, etc.) idemeum will automatically readjust and recalculate entitlement rules, and conduct all necessary provisioning / deprovisioning.

Oct 4, 2021

Launch integration catalog – 30 first integrations

We are launching our first iteration of integrations catalog. To start with, we certified 30 integrations across various categories, including passwordless SSO, HRMS, and automated account provisioning. In addition to a summary table with all integrations that we support, we will be providing detailed step by step instructions on how to configure certain integration.

You can access out integration catalog here.

End to end Passwordless Single Sign-On

At idemeum we envisioned SSO to be simple. To configure SSO you will need to do 3 simple steps: connect idemeum to HR system, set up SAML apps, and enable account provisioning.

Therefore, as part of this release we are launching:

  • HR system integration – connect your HR system to idemeum in order to automate provisioning and account management. You will be able to automatically create SaaS accounts when employees join and remove accounts when they leave.
  • Single Sign-On SAML support – integrate idemeum with SaaS applications that support SAML for one-click centralized access..
  • Application provisioning – connect idemeum with SaaS applications that support SCIM in order to automatically create, update, and delete employee accounts.

And of course our SIngle Sign-On access works closely with Passwordless MFA. All application access is performed with biometrics instead of any passwords.

Meet idemeum Passwordless MFA

We are excited to share that we released our Passwordless MFA product. idemeum Passwordless MFA allows you to truly eliminate passwords across your organization. Instead of having to login with credentials and type in cumbersome one time codes, idemeum allows your employees to access any application with biometrics instead.

User experience

  • Unlike any existing solution, idemeum MFA is easy to set up – it literally takes 2 mins, and can be done without any IT admin involvement.
  • All logins are very secure and are protected by asymmetric cryptography and protocols such as FIDO2.
  • When your employees login into applications they will simply scan the QR code or approve a push notification. No passwords. No codes to generate or type.
