We are happy to share that ParkMyCloud now supports Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) for Single Sign-On (SSO).
Additionally, ParkMyCloud is now integrated into the Ping Identity App catalog, making it easier to configure your SSO options and add users from Ping accounts.
With these updates, you can now connect to ParkMyCloud through six major SSO providers:
- Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) – Microsoft
- Azure Active Directory – Microsoft
- Google G-Suite
- Okta (in Okta App Network)
- OneLogin (in App Catalog)
- Ping Identity (in App Catalog)
All of these SSO providers are among the top of those ranked in Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Management as as Service.
Using SSO simplifies processes for both users and administrators. Users need to track and remember fewer passwords, and administrators can control user access in the single location of their SSO provider dashboard, to simplify processes and tighten access control.
Through these SSO providers, ParkMyCloud supports just-in-time provisioning of new users. This means that users are automatically created in ParkMyCloud as they are authenticated from the SSO provider. All the administrator needs to do is email users the organization’s unique ParkMyCloud login link, which can be found in the ParkMyCloud management console.
For more information about configuring SSO for your ParkMyCloud account, please see this article in our support portal – there are instructions for each SSO provider. (You’ll need to have an active ParkMyCloud account in place before you can start adding users from your SSO provider – here’s the signup link if you need to create one first.)
