Reliability and uptime have improved significantly.
Foxpass was fast and easy to deploy, its cloud-hosted solution is easy to integrate with our entire infrastructure, and the intuitive UI makes it easy to use.

The Challenge:

LendUp was growing quickly and the IT team was starting to feel the pain of manually managing access to its infrastructure. They had to manually create user accounts, reset passwords and were managing their own LDAP and RADIUS using a combination of legacy and Open-source solutions. This took up valuable resources and time, as well as created reliability and stability issues that IT had to troubleshoot on a regular basis. LendUp wanted to find a single solution that would help them scale, automate and simplify access management to their infrastructure while saving them valuable IT time.

The Solution:

Josh Goffstein, Senior IT Engineer at LendUp, says he selected Foxpass because “we were using internal resources to run LDAP and RADIUS, which was taking a lot of IT time, and giving us reliability and stability issues. Now our server authentication is reliable and fast, saving my team tons of time.” Foxpass enabled them to automate access control to their infrastructure; it serves as a directory and authentication service.

Benefits:

Reduced IT burden

Foxpass delivered an access control solution that automated user access and server provisioning. Today, adding users and managing access to their infrastructure is fast and easy.

Saved money

LendUp had two engineers dedicated to managing LDAP and RADIUS prior to Foxpass, this was expensive, time consuming and complicated to manage. Now those valuable IT resources can be focused on revenue generating activities.

Improved uptime

Foxpass delivered reliability and stability for access control. IT had a lot of uptime issues due to using a combination of legacy and Open-source solutions, that were time consuming and complicated to manage and integrate into the cloud.
