Configuring SAML 2.0 with OneLogin

2 mins read

The OneLogin platform is an access management system that uses single sign-on (SSO) and a cloud directory to enable organizations to manage user access to on-premises and cloud applications. It is a tool to help empower employees, customers, and partners with secure access to your cloud and company apps on all devices.

Basically, it gives a layer of security and access to manage business applications. Instead of having to remember multiple passwords, URLs, and what apps you have access to, you are directed to an easy application catalog that will list your apps and can provide single sign-on.
