The Challenges for us is more on technical challenges which need to implement strong policy and technical mechanisms to improve the level of security and enable secure communications for applications on the web.
In addition, the proposed System can improved privacy compliance by allowing the user to control what information is shared, or by limiting the amount of information shared.
The combination of good product with strong domain expertise with the commitment of localized support have given us a strong edge against other competitors. With our expertise be able to assist MOF keep up-to-date security threat on specific user authentication mechanism.
Currently this system support six authentication methods and continuously migration cost to support additional authentication mechanisms will be very minimum. Our SSO have both access reliability and robustness, it functional feature as easy and transparent access to the applications which user have permission (authorization) after successfully presented valid credential for authentication system verification.
This will eventually facilitate a good platform for MOF to be easy to add these new integrated or new developed applications to the platform with single sign on capability.
A new Unified Authentication Platform was set up and customize for the MOF and deploy for OBB MyreSults application, the key function is to enhance the user authentication and credential management. With our expertise to assist the team to define the security policy and enhancing the user registration and activation process.

This system in production for 2 years only to serve and protect one dedicated OBB MyResults application. Implementing strict credential policies for good security reason, encouraging use of strong passwords or one time password improving password security & confidentiality.
With full confidence on our platform, the management decision to integrate another application for further evaluate the security and single sign on features. One important application name Electronic Government Procurement Application (eGPA) was identify for this purpose. With our expertise and application integration experiences, this application was successfully integrated with our platform, deployed and in production on time.
