Service Gateway – SSO For The Enterprise Portal

When you use SSO, then you want a Login Page
that works with your organization model. In addition, you need an application which 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 model and SSO. Service Gateway has these 2 things.

When you use SSO, then it is very important to get a login page that functions 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 this Identity Provider. However, if you have several Identity Providers, Service Gateway displays a link on your login page to’Use external login’.

The main reason I mention this link is because Service Gateway provides this link so that if your customers enter their login information in the portal they can simply click on this hyperlink. It will subsequently send them to their own primary Identity Provider. This saves them having to go through the lengthy process of getting their login info manually to the portal. Service Gateway’s answer to this problem is to divert the customers to their external provider.

The upcoming great feature of Service Gateway is its ability to handle your password storage. Since your service is all about security and identity then it should be simple to deal with your password. Service Gateway utilizes its inbuilt password management tool. If your password becomes compromised it will be flashed and you will have a safe password again.

Some of the password management tools offered by Service Gateway include the ability to configure your password as you wish, you can also set the password to your user login and then set the password for that user login. If your password becomes compromised and a user gets your Service Gateway website using their login data which password will be immediately reset.

All of these features make Service Gateway very simple to use and configure. There are a whole lot of different attributes but those mentioned here are what I feel are the best.

The downside to the system is that as long as you get a username and password set up then your site will have the ability to be obtained using your username and password. There are a few other options like allowing people to gain access to your site with an IP address or even allowing them to sign in using a social security number.

A number of the other websites like to bill you some type of subscription fee when you get access for their own support gateways. You truly have to do a bit of study on your own to learn which ones are worth your while. The majority of them are a really 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 utilize some of the paid ones since they all seem quite similar.
