Tools4ever enhancing HelloID security with an added proxy functionality

Tools4ever has added another layer of access security to its Cloud-Based Single Sign-On (SSO) through a proxy functionality that can be enabled to restrict direct user-traffic to applications and resources. This new proxy capability will help direct all possible access through HelloID, where Access Policies are enforced and all user activity is logged and monitored.

The proxy capability must be requested through Tools4ever, via the management dashboard in HelloID on each desired application’s individual configuration page. To submit a request, administrators must simply click the “Request” button next to “Secure Access.” Requested applications must also support the proxy functionality in order to be enabled.

Once enabled, any attempt by a user to access an application or resource outside of the HelloID portal will be blocked. By restricting users to solely using HelloID, resource- and application-access will be firmly controlled according to the established Access Policies (time of day, acceptable IP address, acceptable geographic location, etc.), verified AD credentials, and verified Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) via RADIUS or another OTP authenticator. Once granted access, a user’s activity will be logged and monitored for the duration of their session as is standard within the HelloID portal for security and compliance measures.
