Tirasa has joined the IDaaS (Identity as a Service) project at Gordon Food Service after an initial phase where access policy enforcement via entitlements was already implemented through Okta. It centralized authentication and authorization features for all company applications, about 400,000 users.
To complete the transition to the new IAM infrastructure, the primary need was to migrate corporate and customer users, along with credentials, from legacy identity repositories which are separated between Canada and US business units.
Moreover, a central place for user administration and entitlement management was needed, with capabilities to provision Okta with all information required.
Mobile-ready self-service user profile management, delegated administration and Single SignOn were additional requirements identified.
This challenging project required all the flexibility that only an Open Source artifact like Apache Syncope can provide, combined with the deep expertise that Tirasa owns on this technology.
We would not have been able to reach the goal without the invaluable support of the IDaaS team that Gordon Food Service made available, competent and qualified, able to understand, teach and guide when needed.
We are also pleased to have started an enduring professional relationship with Gordon Food Service, rooted in mutual trust.

The Open Source selection resulted in Apache Syncope and Tirasa, which provided ts activities to support the Army staff in building the best IdM system possible, for their own specific needs.
After a PoC built by Tirasa and based on Apereo CAS and Apache Syncope, the Institute decided to proceed on this path by engaging Tirasa itself to realize the whole infrastructure.
Provisioning is involved with managing the internal data sources and external via specific connectors for representation of users, groups and attributes. This component often needs to be tailored to meet the requirements of a specific deployment. The enterprise support of Tirasa, gave us the manageability, scalability and flexibility to connect and protect millions of consumers at enterprise customers
Tirasa built for Nivo1 a full-blown, integrated, IAM platform based on the Open Source tools as Apache Syncope and Apereo CAS, granting full control, on customer base, to both user lifecycle and differentiated authentication and authorization. This combination of tools gives Nivo1 a distinct competitive advantage.
Currently the whole infrastructure, based on Apache Syncope, manages about 5.000 users, periodically synchronized with HR.
We choose Apache Syncope to carry out the provisioning and account management role as part of our authorization platform, due to its simplicity and flexible adoption to the product needs. Another important consideration was the knowledge and excellent support provided by the Tirasa team

We have had a few years to get to know Apache Syncope and have gained some in-depth knowledge of its use. For this, the support provided by Tirasa has been a vital aid. We have received help in the form of, for instance, code examples providing a preview of the implementation, as well as solutions to configuration problems and quick fixes to any errors we have discovered.
