US firm OneLogin has launched a European service to provide cloud-based Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions and on-demand Single Sign-On (SSO) services hosted with two providers with EU operations, Rackspace and Softlayer. 

The new offering is aimed at helping provide customers with a service that meets European data residency and compliance standards, as well as meeting any locational preference requirements.

Customers can host their user identities within the EU service provider data centres separately from their existing US based service, providing local hosting that conforms to part of the developing EU data protection guidelines.

The two providers signed up with OneLogin, are Rackspace and Softlayer, with data centres in London and Amsterdam respectively. The approach replicates the service design for the company's US operations, which are hosted by Rackspace at sites in Dallas and Chicago.

The expansion of services follows on from OneLogin receiving a $13 million (£7.8 million) round of Series B venture capital from lead investor The Social+Capital Partnership alongside returning investor Charles River Ventures, and will support OneLogin’s planned international growth strategy.

Thomas Pedersen, CEO at OneLogin said, “This expansion into Europe provides us with an opportunity to expand our customer footprint and build on our leadership position in the cloud identity management market. By giving our customers control over where their corporate data resides, we help them be compliant with European data privacy and residency laws and regulations. This move into Europe is a major part of our IAM growth strategy, and we are continuing to expand both our technical and business development teams as well.”

Us Customers of OneLogin include Dropbox, Pandora, Pinterest, Riot Games, Netflix, Tableau Software, tumblr, Uber, Yammer and Zendesk to established organisations such as AAA, Condé Nast, PBS, Steelcase, The Carlyle Group and Herman Miller. Prior to the EU data centre launch,

OneLogin now hosts its application in four physically separate enterprise-grade data centres, with dedicated servers, DDoS protection, deep-packet inspection firewalls and load balancers. By design, the new implementation provides high-availability, cloud-based infrastructure and contains no single-point-of-failure. This includes built-in redundancy at every tier including DNS, data centre, application and database servers. Should one data centre become unavailable, traffic will redirect to the other data centre to ensure continuous operation.

One of the latest regions to receive a CDNetworks point of presence (PoP) is Eastern Europe, with the installation of a new PoP in Warsaw, to service Poland’s 25 million internet users. According to Internet World Stats Poland has the 6th largest internet user base of the 28 EU countries with 65% of the population connected to the internet. 

“CDNetworks has excellent coverage in Russia and Europe, but our customers wanted faster access to web users in Poland,” said Jeff Kim, President and COO, CDNetworks US/EMEA.  “This new PoP provides reliability and high performance for consumer goods sites targeting this growing ecommerce market.”

CDNetworks also added two new products to their range; Cloud Security which has global support for DDoS mitigation and  Cloud DNS which added new Domain Name System (DNS) servers to the service bringing the worldwide DNS server total to 48, which CDNetworks claims surpasses all the other DNS networks.

Ninety-four new customers were added in 2013 including: online retail customers Bally, Slyde Watches, Remy Cointreau, and Groupe Casino; gaming customer Digital Chocolate, NCSOFT and one of the largest gaming platforms; as well as cloud technology customers Outfit7 (Talking Tom), Yatedo and Omnifone.

“CDNetworks will enable us to accelerate the expansion of Omnifone’s cloud-based digital music platform, MusicStation, within the APAC region,” said Doug Imrie, Chief Operating Officer, Omnifone.  “Before we made our decision, we ran several performance tests with CDNetworks and some of its competitors. CDNetworks’ technology was the fastest in terms of the time it took to play a track from the initial click of a button.”
