Single Sign-On (SSO) centralizes authentication by designating an Identity Provider (IdP) tasked with processing login requests from authorized, SSO-enabled applications that are referred to as Service Providers (SPs). Users authenticate into integrated services (SPs) using a single account orchestrated by the IdP, reducing the growth of unnecessary credentials.
Spirion’s Sensitive Data Manager (SDM) Console supports SSO and comes configured by default to function as an SP for federated authentication using SAML 2.0. It is initially set for Microsoft’s Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) as the IdP, though alternative Identity Providers can be configured as well.
Okta, for example, is an identity and access management solution that can be configured to facilitate federated SSO as an IdP for both on-prem and cloud applications.
