Service Gateway – SSO For Your Enterprise Portal
When you use SSO, you want a Login Page
that works with your organization model. You also need an application that is easy for you to access if you want it. This usually means that you want an application that can be customized and built around your business model and SSO. Service Gateway has these two things.
When you use SSO, it is quite important to get a login page which works as you expect. If you’re using the support portal property to automatically redirect users to their main Identity Provider, Service Gateway will automatically redirect them to this Identity Provider. But if you have multiple Identity Providers, Service Gateway displays a link in your login page to’Use external login’.
The main reason why I mention this connection is because Service Gateway provides this link so that if your clients enter their login information in the portal they can just click this hyperlink. It will subsequently send them to their own primary Identity Provider. This saves them having to go through the lengthy process of receiving their login information manually into the portal. Service Gateway’s answer to this problem is to divert the clients for their outside provider.
The upcoming great quality of Service Gateway is its capacity to manage your password storage. Since your service is about identity and security then it should be simple to manage your password. Service Gateway utilizes its inbuilt password management tool. If your password becomes compromised it will be automatically reset and you will have a secure password again.
Some of the password management applications provided by Service Gateway include the capability to configure your password as you wish, you may even set the password to your user login and then set the password for this user login. If your password becomes compromised and a user gets your Service Gateway website using their login data which password will be instantly reset.
All of these attributes make Service Gateway very easy to use and configure. There are a whole lot of other features but those mentioned here are what I believe are the best.
The downside to this system is that as long as you have a password and username set up then your website will have the ability to be obtained using your own username and password. There are a couple different alternatives such as allowing people to gain access to your website using an IP address or even allowing them to sign in using a social security number.
A number of the other websites like to bill you some kind of subscription fee once you get access to their service gateways. You truly have to do a bit of study on your own to find out which ones are worth your while. Most of them really are a very low cost and affordable for all businesses.
I would also recommend checking the reviews on these sites to learn what others think about the services. I personally don’t use any of the paid ones because all of them seem quite similar.
