Centrify Identity Service provides SSO and automated account provisioning for Salesforce and other cloud apps
Enterprises struggle with managing how employees use web-based applications. Some of these apps are optional or for personal use, while others are critical to running the business. Salesforce is one of those applications that many enterprises can’t live without.
But supporting users and maintaining security for an app with hundreds — or thousands — of daily logins can be daunting. And controlling the spread of sensitive corporate data and plugging security breaches from username and password combinations that may be shared across apps are challenges every IT professional knows well. Meanwhile, corporate users are frustrated by having to create and remember unique passwords for every app they use. Salesforce understands these challenges and supports Single Sign-On with Centrify Identity Service.
With Centrify Identity Service, users can log in once and then point, click and launch all their SaaS apps. With convenient single sign-on (SSO), users get immediate access without having to remember their username and password for each app. IT admins can centrally provision new users, create custom access policies, and automatically revoke access to Salesforce when needed. SAML integration means users can log in using their existing credentials from any device.
Integration with Active Directory
A five-minute installation securely connects your Active Directory to Salesforce. Centrify works without replicating sensitive Active Directory data into the cloud or a third-party and requires no changes to firewall policies. If your business doesn’t use Active Directory or wants 100% cloud-based identity for users outside of the corporate network, Centrify supports that too.
When IT creates a new user in Active Directory, Centrify can automatically create a(n) Salesforce account for them, with the correct authorization, and single sign-on access. When that user leaves, Centrify automatically revokes Salesforce access, ensuring only the right users have access at all times.
Provide one-click access to Salesforce — without adding another username and password for users to remember. Centrify leverages SAML for secure authentication without passwords, to provide one-click access to Salesforce and all your other cloud and mobile apps.
