Service Gateway – SSO For Your Business Portal
When you use SSO, you want a Login Page that works with your organization model. You also require an application that is simple for you to access when you want it. This means that you want an application that may be customized and built around your business design and SSO. Service Gateway has these 2 things.
When you use SSO, then it’s quite important to get a login page which functions as you expect. If you are using the service portal real estate to automatically redirect users to their main Identity Provider, Service Gateway will automatically redirect them to that Identity Provider. However, if you have multiple Identity Providers, Service Gateway displays a link in your login page to’Use external login‘.
The reason I mention this link is because Service Gateway provides this link so that when your customers enter their login information in the portal they can just click this link. It is going to subsequently send them to their primary Identity Provider. This saves them having to go through the lengthy process of getting their login information manually to the portal. Service Gateway’s solution to this issue is to divert the clients for their external supplier.
The next great feature of Service Gateway is its ability to manage your password storage. Since your service is all about identity and security then it should be simple to deal with your password. Service Gateway uses its inbuilt password management application. If your password becomes compromised it will be flashed and you’ll have a safe password again.
A number of the password management applications provided by Service Gateway include the capability to configure your password as you wish, you may also set the password to the user login and then set the password for this user login. If your password becomes compromised along with a user gets your Service Gateway site using their login data that password will be immediately reset.
Each these attributes make Service Gateway very simple to use and configure. There are a lot of other attributes but these mentioned here are what I believe are the best.
The downside to this system is that as long as you get a username and password setup then your site will have the ability to be obtained using your username and password. There are a couple different alternatives like allowing people to have access to your site with an IP address or even allowing them to sign with a social security number.
A number of the other websites like to charge you some kind of subscription fee when you get access for their own support gateways. You truly need to do a bit of study on your own to find out which ones are worth your while. Most of them really are a really low cost and affordable for all companies.
I would also recommend checking the reviews on these websites to learn what others consider the services. I personally do not utilize any of the paid ones because they all seem quite similar.
