Samanage and OneLogin SSO

Discussion created by Oz Merchant Administrator on Jan 28, 2014

Providing value and convenience to our customers is our top priority. That's why we've partnered with OneLogin, a service provider that offers SaaS-based identity management and single sign-on (SSO) solutions for companies that embrace cloud computing.

This alliance will make our SaaS-based IT management service even more extendable for our enterprise customers, enabling them to leverage an industry-strength SSO and identity management platform. They'll have quick and safe 'one-click' access to our service, as well as the more than 1,000 other SaaS solutions that are pre-integrated with OneLogin. As a result, they'll have an easier way to effectively roll out our service, as well as other cloud-based systems, to their end users.

Integration between Samanage and OneLogin is achieved through Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) toolkit. SAML is a standard for Web-based enterprise single sign-on that eliminates passwords and provides seamless directory integration and multi-factor authentication through solutions such as OneLogin.

The benefits of this approach include:

  • Enhanced security. SSO eliminates the risks and threats associated with managing multiple sets of credentials, ensuring that application data is kept fully protected from unauthorized access at all times.
  • Improved productivity. Users are relieved from 'password fatigue', as they no longer have to remember and manually type in countless user IDs and passwords.
  • Increased application adoption. When users have faster, more convenient access to cloud-solutions, they are more likely to embrace and use them.
