Service Gateway – SSO For The Business Portal
When you use SSO, you need a Login Page that works with your business model. In addition, you require an application that is easy for you to access when you want it. This means that you want an application which can be customized and built around your business design and SSO. Service Gateway has these 2 things.
When you use SSO, it’s very important to have a login page which works as you expect. If you are using the support portal property to automatically redirect users to their primary Identity Provider, Service Gateway will automatically redirect them to that Identity Provider. However, if you’ve got multiple Identity Providers, Service Gateway shows a link on your login page to’Use external login’.
The main reason why I mention this connection is since Service Gateway provides this link so that when your clients enter their login information in the portal they can just click this link. It will subsequently send them to their own primary Identity Provider. This saves them having to go through the long process of receiving their login info manually into the portal. Service Gateway’s answer for this issue is to redirect the clients to their outside provider.
The next great feature of Service Gateway is its capacity to manage your password storage. Ever since your service is all about security and identity then it should be easy to deal with your password. Service Gateway utilizes its inbuilt password management tool. If your password becomes compromised it will be automatically reset and you’ll have a safe password again.
A number of the password management applications offered by Service Gateway include the capability to configure your own password as you wish, you may also set the password for your user login and then place the password for that user login. If your password becomes compromised along with an individual accesses your Service Gateway website using their login info which password will be immediately reset.
All of these attributes make Service Gateway quite simple to use and configure. There are a lot of other attributes but those mentioned here are what I feel are the very best.
The downside to this system is that as long as you have a password and username set up then your website will be able to be obtained using your own username and password. There are a couple different options like allowing people to have access to your website using an IP address or perhaps allowing them to sign in using a social security number.
Many of the other websites like to bill you some type of subscription fee when you get access to their support gateways. You truly have to do a bit of research on your own to find out which ones are worth your while. The majority of them really are a very low cost and cheap for most businesses.
I would also advise checking the reviews on these websites to see what others think about the services. I personally do not use any of the paid ones since they all seem very similar.
