App Modernization: Moving from SiteMinder to Azure AD

Quickly move an application from a legacy IdP to a modern cloud one without the need to refactor the app

Future-proof applications via identity abstraction to quickly add new post-modernization identity services such as MFA, Passwordless, or Identity Verification

Leverage automation to replicate the process at scale for all your applications and retire your EOL legacy vendor contracts

Recipe summary: app modernization – moving from SiteMinder to Azure AD

This recipe demonstrates how Maverics makes it easy to seamlessly move an application from a legacy IdP, SiteMinder, to a modern one like Azure AD without rewriting that application or changing the user’s access experience. The recipe shows both the pre and post-modernization app authentication flows, which remain unchanged from the employee’s perspective. In just a few minutes’ time, Maverics is deployed as an Application Gateway in front of the target app. A simple configuration update is then made to redirect user authentication to the new target IdP.

Recipe instructions: app modernization – moving from SiteMinder to Azure AD

Authentication flow steps before the app modernization

  1. 1

    The user attempts to access the target app via an existing SiteMinder-protected authentication flow

  2. 2

    If SiteMinder’s legacy policy definitions are met, the user can access the target app

Authentication flow steps after the app modernization

  1. 1

    The user navigates to the target app using the same authentication flow they are familiar with

  2. 2

    The application’s policy is now defined by the Maverics Application Gateway instead of SiteMinder

  3. 3

    Maverics evaluates the new app policy in the config settings and now redirects the user to Azure AD for authentication

  4. 4

    Once the user authenticates against Azure AD they are granted access to the app

  5. 5

    SiteMinder can be quickly retired once all of the organization’s apps are modernized with Maverics
