Easy SSO to cloud services
CloudAccess provides single sign-on (SSO) to virtually any cloud-based service. Users get quick, convenient access to cloud apps without the risk of password breaches. Best of all, it's surprisingly easy to configure.

CloudAccess uses various technologies to provide single sign-on (SSO) to virtually any cloud-based service. With SSO, you can give users seamless access to your cloud apps that is quick and convenient while increasing the security of your overall environment.
And it's not just easy on users—we've made it easy on administrators too.
For software as a service (SaaS) applications that support federation technologies, CloudAccess integrates with them very easily. This ensures that user credentials are never out in the cloud, so your apps are safe from the outside threats that result from cloud-based password breaches.
You can quickly set up federation through preconfigured connectors that integrate with your SaaS application out-of-the-box, with very little configuration.
CloudAccess also includes the Connector Toolkit for SaaS environments so you can configure other connectors yourself. The Connector Toolkit provides an interface to walk you through a few configuration steps and you're ready to go.
If you're a Priority Support CloudAccess customer you can also have Technical Services help you get the correct SAML metadata information from your provider if you prefer. The end result is that you're quickly up-and-running.
In addition to being able to configure connectors that federate to cloud-based applications, you can also create SSO connectors to services that don't have protocol support. CloudAccess interacts with our Basic Single Sign-On extension for Google Chrome browsers.
Using a browser plug-in, Basic Single Sign-On delivers quick, convenient access to virtually any service, even if they don't provide any federation services. And because the extension works specifically with CloudAccess, administrators are able to enforce authentication policies to control access.
