Google extends single sign-on feature for popular work apps

Mar 15, 2016, 8:42 am

Remembering multiple passwords for all your accounts is a painful task which Google is easing for you. Now you can login into more service providers’ account using Google account.

The search engine giant in a blog post lists the number of application integrated with the SAML and revealed they are adding support of SAML 2.0 (Security Assertion Markup Language) for more than 15 popular SaaS providers. The complete roll out which will take upto three days to the end users will find pre-configured SAML 2.0 support for Microsoft Office 365, Facebook at Work, Panorama9, New Relic, Concur, Coupa, Box, Slack among others. Google already supports hundreds of apps in the Google Apps Marketplace and OpenID Connect through SAML 2.0 SSO using Google Apps credentials.


Sometimes it becomes very difficult to remember multiple passwords for each account and the feature could be very beneficial. Last year Google launched support for Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 enabling users to sign-in to enterprise cloud applications via Single Sign-On (SSO) using OpenID Connect (OIDC) identity.

Millions of users worldwide sign into their account without providing separate login details with Google Identity for all of their SaaS/IT applications. The OpenID Connect feature works more secure when your accounts are integrated with you mobile phone – that increase your password strength.

The blog post also writes, “Our Google Smart Lock features are available to all Google Accounts, including those used at work, and we provide identity services and enterprise mobility management (EMM) as part of Google Apps for Work at no additional cost.”
