Saas Applications

Deploying cloud applications should establish an alternative strong authentication method, such as one-time password (OTP) or knowledge-based question. This will provide stronger authentication than passwords alone. SaaS providers don't typically support authentication alternatives besides SAML single sign-on and a username and password login. Stronger authentication requires deploying a hardware token (YubiKey) or tokenless OTP capability to clients using SMS or the Google Authenticator. The costs per user and integration requirements for deploying a one-time password can differ greatly. Therefore, choosing a flexible solution-set that provides many authentication methods that allows you to configure by user, group and organization to best meet the needs of your clients.
