At IDrive we’re all about making our user’s lives easier so their valuable data can be conveniently backed up without a hassle.
Our newest addition, Single Sign On, adds to the convenience of IDrive by giving admins of Enterprise accounts the ability to allow their sub-accounts to access IDrive by signing in to a central identity provider. With Single Sign On, admins would put their trusted identity provider in charge of authentication, then sub-accounts can utilize the IDrive application without having to remember yet another password.
What are the benefits of utilizing Single Sign On?
- Decreased Human Error – SSO eliminates the need for users to remember multiple passwords, ensuring they are signed in and capable of backing up data whenever needed.
- Reduced Admin Workload – Since users are rarely prompted for username or password, this means fewer requests to reset forgotten passwords.
- Faster log-in time – Leads to increased productivity by eliminating login efforts.
- Improved Security – Since users aren’t required to remember a number of different basic passwords, SSO encourages the use of a single, more complex password.
If you have signed up for IDrive as an admin of an Enterprise account, you can now enable your users to sign in to your central identity provider to utilize SSO with IDrive.
IDrive is compatible with all Identity Providers which support SAML 2.0 Standard, including:
- Ping Fedarate
If your identity provider is configured and SSO is configured in IDrive, you can now enable single sign on upon creation of sub-accounts and take advantage of this great new feature.
