What is SSO?
Single sign-on, also known as SSO, is an authentication method that allows you to securely access several independent software systems and applications using one set of credentials. With an SSO provider, you can enter a username and password just once to access all of the company’s SaaS applications.
How does SSO work?
SSO integration is set up between an application, or a service provider, like GanttPRO Gantt chart generator, and an identity provider. Applications hand over responsibilities for authenticating users to the identity provider.
Why do you need SSO?
Single sign-on can enhance your team’s productivity by providing a seamless user experience. SSO reduces the risk of lost, forgotten, or weak passwords, and eventually, it cuts down on login troubleshooting.
Security control is a pain point for many enterprise companies. With the single sign-on authentication method, team administrators can enable and disable user access to multiple systems, platforms, apps, and other resources anytime.
GanttPRO can be integrated with the most popular SSO providers, such as Okta, OneLogin, Azure AD, and Google Workspace (formerly Google Suite).

Note that only Account Owner, Account Admins and Enterprise users with a Custom role and corresponding permission have the possibility to configure Single sign-on (SSO, SAML) for the entire account.
