ManageEngine, the IT management division of Zoho Corporation, announced the launch of Identity Manager Plus, a secure, cloud-based single sign-on (SSO) solution.
Available immediately, Identity Manager Plus allows organizations to enable SSO to enterprise applications running on premises or in the cloud, including Office 365, G Suite, Salesforce, Slack and Zendesk. It also provides deep insights into various important metrics, including application usage and user accesses.
According to the 2019 Annual SaaS Trends report, a medium-sized organization uses more than 150 applications, and an average employee uses more than eight applications on a daily basis.
Remembering different passwords for many applications is difficult and often results in employees adopting bad password habits, such as setting weak passwords or using the same password for all applications. Also, managing and monitoring access to many applications can be time-consuming for IT administrators.
“Organizations need to ensure that the right users have access to the right applications,” said Parthiban Paramasivam, director of product management, Identity Manager Plus.
“Identity Manager Plus helps organizations manage, monitor and control users’ access to applications, while simultaneously improving user experience by providing seamless, one-click access to all applications. Most importantly, Identity Manager Plus offers all these at a cost-effective price.”
SSO support for hundreds of applications
Identity Manager Plus supports SAML 2.0 and works with hundreds of applications out of the box, including Office 365, G Suite, Salesforce, Slack, Workday, Dropbox, Zoho and Zendesk.
For organizations that have in-house applications that support SAML, Identity Manager Plus provides custom SAML application integration as well.
Highlights of Identity Manager Plus
Key features of Identity Manager Plus include:
- Standardized SAML-based SSO: Provides SSO to any application that supports the SAML protocol.
- Centralized access management: Administrators can manage access to all enterprise applications by granting or revoking user access in bulk.
- Auditing of application usage and access: Grants deep insights into application usage, including when an application was accessed by a user, who enabled SSO for an application, and who granted or revoked users’ access to an application.
