SSO Manager is a Cloud Single Sign-On and Identity Federation platform that supports all of the standard identity protocols - SAML, OpenID, WS-Trust, WS-Federation, and OAuth.
SSO Manager enables employees, consumers, customers, and partners to access cloud and corporate applications using a single username and password. Federated SSO allows users who are authenticated against one directory to access additional applications and services without re-authenticating when a trust relationship has been established.
SSO Manager acts as an authentication gateway or broker allowing internal corporate users to login with their Active Directory accounts and then seamlessly sign into cloud applications like SalesForce.com, Webex, or Google Apps. Business partners or customers have the same single sign-on experience for corporate applications like Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and may sign in with their corporate credentials or even their social media identities like Google Apps, Facebook, Windows Live, Yahoo, and others. This new model eliminates multiple usernames and passwords and enables single sign-on between organizations. SSO Manager dramatically increases security by enforcing stronger authentication controls including time-based one-time passwords and knowledge-based questions for identity proofing.
