Value Proposition

5 Reasons to Choose Gateway over On-Premise

Lower Costs – Lighthouse Gateway offers you a cost-effective alternative to an on-premise Identity and Access Management (IAM) infrastructure:

  • No hardware to acquire or maintain
  • No large capital expenditures for professional services
  • Affordable, fixed, and known operating expenses 
  • Costs 30-60% less over the first 3 years of operation  

Time to Market – Gateway’s cloud solution enables you to get your Identity and Access Management (IAM) infrastructure up and running 25 – 75% faster than on-premise solutions. Your focus will be on the exploitation of Gateway’s feature-rich, Tivoli-based solution rather than the time and expense of building and maintaining an Identity and Access Management (IAM) infrastructure.

Reduce Complexity – JAAS, JACC, SSO, WS-Security, SAML, WS-Federation, WS-Trust, X.509, LTPA, LDAP, SSL, Liberty Alliance, PEP/PDP, RBAC, ABAC, and the list goes on. It is difficult to understand these complex standards and technologies, especially with limited resources and staff. You should be able to dedicate your internal resources to your core business, not maintaining a complex and demanding infrastructure. Lighthouse Gateway removes complexity from the Identity and Access Management (IAM) equation by replacing your on-premise infrastructure with a cloud-based solution. Shielding you from complicated security configurations and industry standards, Gateway simplifies your enterprise security while maintaining the state-of-the-art in Identity and Access Management (IAM) technology.

Compliance On-Demand – Compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI, FFIEC, HIPAA, FISMA, and other regulations may be considerations for your Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution. Lighthouse’s internal staff of CISA certified auditors and QSAs, along with external certification authorities, ensure that companies of all sizes receive “Compliance On-Demand” and are ready to meet stringent and rapidly changing regulations.

Leverage IT Commoditization – In today’s business environment, Identity and Access Management (IAM) is critical for your enterprise. You need a comprehensive service, but you don’t need another infrastructure to build and maintain. As IT continues to commoditize and budgets become ever-tightened, focusing your resources on core business objectives that help differentiate your business and make your organization competitive will become increasingly important. While IAM infrastructure remains a necessary and critical component of your IT strategy, the traditional costs of ownership no longer have to burden your bottom line.

"IAM as a service will drive broader adoption of IAM by small and midsize businesses, better cost-benefit accountability, and IAM appliance innovation."
