The G Suite team has announced that 25 new pre-integrated apps have been added to their SAML Single Sign-on (SSO) support in the platform. SAML is one of two SSO standards that are supported by G Suite and additional apps being supported means that it is easier for Admins to get their users enabled across various services used by their organization.
For those who may not be familiar with Single Sign-On, the hint is somewhat in the name. SSO allows a domain user to use their network username & password to sign into other services that their organization uses. It cuts down on users having to remember several passwords but also gives admins greater control and recover tools for those additional services.
The additional apps will be hitting on domains over the course of the next two weeks and Admins are encouraged to review their configurations in order to enable the new apps.
As for the new pre-integrated apps, here is the list:
- Adobe Sign (formerly EchoSign)
- Artifactory Cloud
- Autotask Workplace
- Cisco Umbrella (formerly OpenDNS)
