Many applications do not support the ability to integrate with SSO providers such as Azure AD or Okta. This creates extraordinary risk by leaving those applications exposed to basic authentication which is insecure. This also results in a poor end-user experience as disjointed passwords must be used to access legacy applications. Because the iboss Zero Trust Secure Service Edge acts as a gateway to protected resources, the iboss platform can force SSO authentication to any Federated Identity Provider before the user gains access to the application. No data will flow to the application unless the connection is authorized by the iboss platform and this will only occur once the user has properly authenticated via SSO against the iboss Secure Service Edge.
