Eye on Business: OneLogin Had a Big Year in 2017



OneLogin is a quickly-growing technological company that specializes in identity and access management.  Called IAM for short – they specialize in security for large corporations to small businesses, charitable organizations, and every other entity in between.

In 2009, two brothers – Thomas and Christian Pedersen – founded OneLogin. The pair had worked at Zendesk for a number of years, leaving the help desk/customer relationship management software creator with high-ranking positions. Thus giving them inspiration to start a business entity of their own.


OneLogin was launched in the first quarter of fiscal year 2010. In 2017, the company has grown into one of the largest tech startups in the San Francisco Bay Area. Currently they have expanded their corporate customer list to more than 2,000 individuals.


Although OneLogin has experienced growth every year of operation, 2017 was more explosive than any year thus far. The following are some of the most important highlights:


The Portal Just Became Infinitely Easier To Make Use Of


Identity management service providers typically facilitate secure connections to customers’ accounts using web-based portals. OneLogin is no exception.


This year, the company added three central improvements to the OneLogin Portal:

Multi-Factor Authentication Became Even Stronger When Using OneLogin’s Identity Management And Single Sign-On Services

  • Search fields can be modified to be heavy on keywords, tasks, brand names, and other popular search criteria, providing Portal users with increased flexibility.
  • All applications are now compatible with OneLogin’s innovative Portal. Formerly, only the Internet’s most common, widely-compatible applications were able to be used with the Portal.
  • Applications are sorted by frequency of use, cutting down turnover time at customers’ workplaces.



As most people familiar with innovative companies in the Bay Area, those who keep up with leaders in the field of business technology, and individuals who maintain a close watch over the nation’s biggest, baddest, most-booming companies already know, OneLogin, Inc., offers highly secure sign-on and digital identity management services as its primary product.


Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a means of adding one or more extra layers of security to anything with restricted access. One additional layer of security includes fingerprint verification (e.g., for door locks). In reference to digital logins – which OneLogin, Inc., deals with exclusively – additional layers of authentication include security codes sent by text message, verification by email, and security questions.


OneLogin’s new form of MFA, Adaptive Authentication, analyzes what times account owners login, where they login from, what brand browser they tend to utilize, and whether they use laptops or smartphones. The company implemented Adaptive Authentication in April of 2017, and is slated to remain a staple of customers’ password and identity barriers for years to come.


Customers’ Proprietary Software Is Loads Easier To Access


Many large, well-endowed, or highly-specialized businesses rely on proprietary software, programs, and applications designed specifically for their needs. In the past, OneLogin didn’t typically support these apps – only those that were considered popular, or at least available to the public.


In 2017, the Pedersen-created tech business made web-access management of highest priority.  This allowed corporate customers to readily access their custom applications as easy as service as a solution (SAAS) applications.


OneLogin Is Proud To Have Signed A Top-Tier Executive To Its Ranks

Along with the entity’s board of directors, the Pedersen pair hired Mr. Brad Brooks, extensively tenured as the lead executive of more than a handful of technology corporations. OneLogin’s current CEO has 25 years’ of experience in the tech field, making him more than qualified for the position.
