Has anyone ever heard of secureaccess.com? 

The service they are offering appears to tick all the boxes that I'm after.

Any other companies do something remotely similar or the same thing?

I'm going to list a few things that I'm after...

  • I need a service that shields the connection between my employees and the web applications that we use.
  • permission management for individual web applications at both user and group level
  • SSO and 2FA
  • Integrated WAF
  • Integrate LDAP

Thanks
