UnboundID Corp., a developer of cloud identity management software, unveiled this week an update to its identity management platform that combines real-time identity data delivery with new security and encryption controls.

The company says the new features of Version 3.2 are targeted at companies supporting consumer-facing services that are dependent on personally identifiable information.

Many companies leave customer data unencrypted because they fear a loss of revenue due to poor application performance brought on by data encryption, or because of an unwitting oversight on the part of data store administrators responsible for implementing the security controls designed to protect sensitive customer data, UnboundID says.

The new release is designed to protect sensitive customer data in real-time, eliminating poor performance as an excuse for not encrypting customer data. In addition, a set of tools for auditing the configuration of an environment ensures that administrators aren’t caught off-guard by costly mistakes.

Among the new features are security and privacy controls that support signed and encrypted imports and exports, global configuration capabilities designed to reject requests from unsecured connections, and alerts to detect out-of-band configuration changes.

“While ensuring the performance of identity-dependent applications is essential, so is the protection of customer data,” Andy Spillane, chief product officer at UnboundID, said in a statement. “Our goal in designing these new features was to provide both so that our clients can better serve their customers.”
