Identity Providers (IdP)
This article describes how to make secure login and policy-based access easy, with seamless Single Sign-On (SSO) integration with most industry-standard identity providers (IdP) so that you can onboard your entire team with total ease.
More importantly, integrating an Identity Provider and SSO makes for a safer and more user-friendly access policy:
- Increase productivity by giving employees single-click access to all the resources they need to succeed.
- Manage risks to your network by preventing employees from using their best judgment when it comes to password habits.
- Reduce the burden on your IT and Help Desk employees who no longer need to retrieve or manage company credentials.
- Prevent former-employees or vendors from accessing any company resources by removing their access rights in one centralized location.
You can integrate various third-party identity providers such as:
- G-Suite / Google Cloud Services
- On-Premise Active Directory (LDAP)
- Microsoft Azure Active Directory
- SAML 2.0 Identity Providers (OKTA, OneLogin, ADFS, etc.)
Integrating with an IdP
- To integrate an Identity Provider into the Perimeter 81 platform, select Settings in the Management Platform on the left side.
2. Select Add Provider.
- A list of Identity Providers displays. Select your desired Identity Provider and select Continue.
The default setting is that all Identity Provider users can log into Perimeter 81.
- If you would like to limit Perimeter 81 access to specific Identity provider groups, you can do so by selecting the lock symbol next to the name of your Identity Provider.
- Select the different groups that you’d like to give Perimeter 81 access and select Save.
