The G Suite team has announced that 23 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.
As for the new applications, here is the complete list of new apps that are supported:
- Adaptive Insights
- Citrix ShareFile
- Image Relay
- Periscope Data
- Solium Shareworks
If you are a G Suite admin, you should see these new apps start to populate your SSO options over the course of the next few weeks.
