The Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) allows for secure authentication between an identity provider and a service provider. PortalGuard’s SAML Identity Provider (SAML IdP) acts as a SAML-based web portal that uses a single set of credentials for the portal login itself, and then grants access to the rest of your pre-registered web-based accounts and apps using the SAML Single Sign-on protocol.
SAML is XML-based, and has garnered wide support throughout various industries as one of the most trusted and flexible authentication standards. Due to its XML underpinnings, SAML has a high degree of interoperability and allows enterprises to seamlessly integrate it across a wide variety of different software and applications.
PortalGuard allows organizations a highly customizable and effective way to take advantage of SAML’s usefulness and non-proprietary approach.
