Establishing single sign-on (SSO) between Aria and your applications provides a seamless user experience for your uses. Implementing SSO offers the following advantages:
Many applications require users to enter a unique user name and password, forcing them to remember a specific set of login credentials to gain access. While this may not seem like an issue, consider the amount of logins required when hundreds of users each have to sign-on to multiple web applications several times a day. Couple this with the fact that users often forget or misplace their login credentials, which leads to diminished productivity and potential security risks.
To address these concerns, Aria provides single sign-on support from third-party Identity Providers (IdP). Using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0, clients can integrate Aria with a single sign-on IdP. This allows users to log-in and log-out of Aria from a single point-of-entry, such as a corporate SSO portal.
Implementing SSO offers the following advantages:
Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an XML-based standard that allows you to communicate authentication decisions between one service and another. It underlies many web-based single sign-on solutions. Aria supports SAML 2.0 for single sign-on into the Aria application from a corporate portal or identity provider.
