Single Sign-On (SSO) Now Supported

We’d like to introduce the latest feature to the AppCheck platform: Single Sign-On (SSO). This enhancement stems from customer feedback and has been added to simplify the customer access experience. Below we cover what this feature includes, how this benefits our customers and how SSO streamlines access to our platform and integrated services.


What’s Its Main Purpose?

Instead of requiring users to log in separately to each application or service they need to access, SSO enables users to authenticate once and then gain access to all authorised resources without needing to re-enter their credentials.


How does this improve your AppCheck experience?

  • Improved User Password Management: With SSO, users need to remember only one password. This reduces the likelihood of users resorting to weak passwords or reusing passwords across multiple sites, a common practice that can significantly compromise security.
  • Supported identity providers: Includes Okta and Azure (and generic SAML) with others in the pipeline.
  • Reduced Administrative Overhead: SSO reduces the need for multiple password resets and account lockout issues, decreasing the workload on IT departments. This not only improves security by ensuring timely access revocation when necessary but also allows IT staff to focus on other security tasks.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is Single Sign-On (SSO)?

Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication process that allows users to access multiple applications or services with a single set of login credentials. Instead of requiring users to log in separately to each application, SSO enables them to authenticate once and gain access to all authorised resources without needing to re-enter their credentials.


How does SSO work?

SSO works by establishing a trust relationship between an identity provider (IdP) and multiple service providers (SPs). When a user attempts to access an SP, they are redirected to the IdP for authentication. Once authenticated, the IdP issues a token to the user, which grants access to the SP without requiring further authentication.


What are the benefits of implementing SSO?

SSO offers several benefits, including improved user experience, enhanced security, reduced password fatigue, streamlined access management, and increased productivity. By simplifying authentication processes and centralising asset control, SSO helps organisations optimise efficiency and user satisfaction.
