Single Sign-On (SSO): One Login to Rule Them All. Simplify your workday with a single, secure login for all the applications you need.

Single Sign-On

The Basic Concept:

Trust Relationship: At the heart of SSO is a 'trust circle' between your Identity Provider (IdP - the SSO system itself) and various Service Providers (the applications you want to access).

One Login: You log in to the SSO system ONCE, proving who you are. This establishes your identity.

The Magic Token: The SSO system gives you a special token (like a temporary backstage pass). This token confirms your identity has been verified.

Seamless Access: When you try to access an application within the SSO system (e.g., your email, a sales tool), it sees your token. Because it trusts the SSO system, it lets you in without needing another login!

Using Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace? Good news you have your SSO solution ready to go!

Benefits of SSO for Businesses

Password Peace of Mind: Imagine having one master key for all the tools your team uses – no more juggling multiple passwords or frustrating resets! SSO saves time and reduces password headaches.

---

Serious Security Upgrade: Think of SSO like adding extra locks to your business. Fewer passwords to manage means fewer opportunities for hackers to break in. Plus, it's much easier to enforce strong password policies on just one login.

---

Spot Trouble Faster: SSO gives you a single place to see who is logging in and from where. This makes it way easier to spot suspicious activity and shut it down before it causes problems.

---

Happy, Productive Employees: Less time battling logins means your team can focus on what they do best. SSO keeps everyone moving smoothly and reduces frustration.

---

Easier to Manage Changes: New employee? Simply set them up in your SSO system and they've got access to everything they need. Someone leaves? One click revokes access. No complex setup or password resets on every tool.

Both Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace come equipped with their own Single Sign-On (SSO) capabilities.

Microsoft 365: Yes, and It's Called Entra AD

At the heart of SSO in Microsoft 365 sits Active Directory (Entra AD). It's the identity management system that powers logins for everything from your email to Microsoft Teams.

---

Entra AD acts as your SSO hub, allowing you to securely access not only Microsoft applications but also many other popular business tools with a single login.

Google Workspace: Also Yes, Using Google Identity

Google Workspace has its own built-in SSO system called Google Identity. It's what lets you use the same login for Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, and more.

---

Google Identity can also be configured to work with various third-party applications, offering that single login convenience beyond just Google's own tools.
