Many businesses have come to integrate SSO (Single Sign-On) services into their organization allowing their employees to have a single point of login for company products. Traditionally this requires an Identity management service, like Active Directory, hosted on a server within the organization. Now there is another option, Salesforce Identity.
Salesforce Identity acts like a traditional service or identity driven SSO, allowing employees to use their Salesforce login credentials to access different services offered by their organization. The best part about Salesforce Identity is that if you already have an Enterprise addition of Salesforce, you already have the ability to leverage Salesforce Identity for your SSO needs.
M&S Consulting has successfully implemented Salesforce Identity for third party applications, along with configuring user accounts for each application. If your organization is looking to implement Salesforce as an Identity provider, or would like to know how M&S can help you with your SSO needs, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
