Best SSO Identity Solutions - Identity Review | Global Tech Think Tank - Identity Review | Global Tech Think Tank

Oftentimes, logins and passwords become overwhelmingly hard to track as their numbers multiply. As a result, SSO identity solutions have grown increasingly in recent times. SSO, or Single Sign-On, provide an efficient and secure way to use one login for multiple platforms. Here’s a list of the best SSO identity solutions on the web. 

1. Okta

Okta is a cloud-based SSO provider that allows access to all cloud and site applications through two-factor authentication. With over 7,000 pre-built integrations and connections to apps, Okta is a great identity solution because of its flexibility in usage.

2. Duo Security

Through passwordless authentication and multi-factor authentication, Duo offers an easy solution for cloud-native apps. Acquired by Cisco in 2018, Duo provides security assertion markup language connectors for enterprise cloud apps like AWS, Workday, and Salesforce, as well as making it easy for businesses that use it to secure corporate accounts while providing “detailed visibility into access at the per-user level.”

3. Keeper

Keeper actually integrates with other SSO systems to further increase security. Its differentiating feature is connecting with identity providers such as Okta, Google G Suite, Duo, OneLogin, JumpCloud, and more. Keeper uses its zero-knowledge architecture to authenticate users into “Keeper Vaults” while deploying user vaults onto their platform.

4. JumpCloud

On an open directory platform, JumpCloud provides access to users for any application, regardless of operation system or location. Companies such as, GoFundMe, Grab, ClassPass, Uplight, Beyond Finance, and Foursquare trust JumpCloud to manage employee identities and their devices. The SSO provides security assertion markup language with 700 popular business applications. 

5. OneLogin

OneLogin utilizes passwords, multi-factor authentication, and context aware access management to authorize user identity. Users can login through social identity provider credentials from services like Facebook and Twitter. Over over 6,000 apps are already integrated onto the platform, and clients can add their organization to give users secure access.

6. IBM Security Access Manager 

IBM Security Access Manager has built-in authentication but also supports external authentication as well. Users have access to all web-based applications regardless of their location in the enterprise or cloud. Especially for those who constantly use protected services, IBM’s SSO helps to manage authentication across different platforms.

7. Ping

Ping’s SSO lso comes with multi-factor authentication. Standout features include its Identity-as-a-service (IDaaS), which is part of its cloud deployment options. Ping serves more than half of Fortune 100 companies, connecting to applications regardless of location. 

8. Microsoft Azure Active Directory

For organizations that use the Azure cloud platform, the SSO provides a seamless user experience to access applications on Microsoft services like Office 365 and SaaS SSO applications as well. By measuring the user, location, and device risk, Azure’s SSO determines if access should be allowed to ensure identity isn’t being compromised.
