Integrate MS ADFS with Vtiger CRM and log into multiple compatible device
Before taking a look at MS ADFS integration with Vtiger CRM, let’s understand what is SSO (Single Sign-On). Also we will be looking at MS ADFS (Active Directory Federation Service)
What is SSO?
SSO (Single Sign-On) is used to login into multiple apps using a single user name and password. It streamlines the overall process of log into different apps and also saves users from remembering multiple passwords. It works on the principle of identity provider, using it websites skips the user to prove their identity by providing login credentials. Instead, website connects with the SSO and verify the identity of the user from there. VTExperts can integrate SSO with VTiger and you can use a single user name and password to log into the vtiger as well in addition to the other applications
Benefits of Integrating SSO
Hassle free passwords: Using it the effort users have to put in remembering and providing passwords at different platforms, the users can use SSO and log in without any hassle
Lessen the security risks: It reduces the security risks not only for the users, but also for the partner entities. When connecting with allied companies always comes with the built in security risks. Using SSO can reduce it for both the users and the associate company
Faster access: SSO is significantly helpful where a large number of users require rapid access to the same system like hospitals, government departments, emergency services. In such scenarios, SSO provides not only secure but also a faster medium to access, by eliminating the process of traditional sign in.
What is Microsoft ADFS?
ADFS (Active Directory Federation Service) is a software tool developed by Microsoft, that allows users to Single Sign-On (SSO) using windows server operating system. Using a single login details, users can access multiple compatible applications and systems. The most recent, key technology that is being used in developing ADFS is SAML 2.0 protocol (Security Assertion Markup Language). SAML 2.0 ensures secure exchange of authentication of data.
Assume a person starts his day at the office by logging into many different application, e.g. CRM, email id, chat tool, documentation tool etc. So, providing credentials for all the application takes alot of time and hassle. Even remembering these many passwords becomes a hassle of its own. Why not use a single password and log into all of these application? The idea sounds really nice and can save you from alot of trouble as well.
