Service Gateway – SSO For The Enterprise Portal
When you use SSO, you want a Login Page
that works with your organization model. You also require an application that is easy for you to access when you want it. This usually 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, then it is quite important to get a login page that works as you expect. If you’re using the support portal real estate to automatically redirect users to their primary Identity Provider, Service Gateway will automatically redirect them to this Identity Provider. However, if you have multiple Identity Providers, Service Gateway displays a link in your login page to’Use external login’.
The main reason why I mention this connection is because Service Gateway provides this connection so that if your clients enter their login information in the portal they can just click this link. It will subsequently send them to their main Identity Provider. This saves them having to go through the lengthy process of getting their login info manually into the portal. Service Gateway’s answer to this problem is to divert the clients for their outside supplier.
The next great feature of Service Gateway is its capacity to handle your password storage. Ever since your service is about security and identity then it needs to be simple to manage your password. Service Gateway uses its inbuilt password management application. If your password becomes compromised it will be automatically reset and you’ll have a secure password again.
A number of the password management applications offered by Service Gateway include the ability to configure your own password as you want, you may also set the password to your user login and then place the password for that user login. If your password becomes compromised along with a user accesses your Service Gateway website using their login info that password will be instantly reset.
All these features make Service Gateway quite easy to use and configure. There are a lot of different attributes but these mentioned here are what I believe are the best.
The downside to the system is that so 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 alternatives such as allowing people to have access to your site with an IP address or perhaps allowing them to sign with a social security number.
Many of the other websites like to charge you some type of subscription fee once you get access to their own service gateways. You really have to do a little bit of study on your own to learn which ones are worth your while. Most of them really are a really low cost and affordable for all businesses.
I would also advise checking the reviews on these websites to learn what others think about the services. Personally, I don’t use some of the paid ones since all of them seem quite similar.
