CloudCodes' SSO1 emphasizes accessing enterprise data in a secure manner. SSO1 is designed to ensure all the entry points to the system are well guarded against any possible attacks.
SSO1 comes with out-of-the-box support for restricting access to the login page by country and IP address. The administrator can either blacklist the countries from which request to their system should not be allowed or, alternatively, whitelist countries. Similarly, the administrator can whitelist and blacklist the IP address from where the request can be either allowed or blocked explicitly.
SSO1 also provides integration with Microsoft Active Directory or OpenLDAP so that organizations can use an existing Identity Provider while adopting cloud services. This reduces the complexity in implementing single sign-on solutions. In case organizations would like to leverage CloudCodes' SSO1 as an IdP, then transitioning can be achieved quickly through the onboarding process.
SSO1 also comes with out-of-the-box support for biometric authentication. While it supports OTP and passwords, the latest smartphone fingerprint-scanning capabilities can be leveraged to provide additional security.
SSO1 also comes with access control features such IP restriction, time restriction, geofencing, and browser restriction. Organizations can now restrict access to their cloud applications in a unified manner. This ensures IT security teams can comply with local regulations.
SSO1 is based on Single Sign-On (SSO) technology, but it focusses more on security than on SSO. It is cloud-based and leverages Google Cloud Platform capabilities to make it robust and scalable.
