OneLogin announces Integration Partnership with Workplace by Facebook
Free OneLogin Plan for Workplace by Facebook Customers; Integration Provides Single Sign-on, Directory Integration, User Provisioning and Multi-factor Authentication
OneLogin, the identity management provider bringing speed and integrity to the modern enterprise, announced an integration partnership with the communications platform Workplace by Facebook (formerly Facebook at Work) [NASDAQ: FB] to provide single sign-on (SSO), external directory (Active Directory, LDAP, Google Apps, HR) integration, user provisioning and multi-factor authentication (MFA).
Companies use Workplace by Facebook, an enterprise version of Facebook that uses familiar Facebook features like Groups, Chat and Live Video to connect employees across departments and geographies and create a more connected, productive workplace. The platform is available on desktop and mobile devices.
David Meyer, vice president of product, OneLogin said:
“OneLogin is excited to help companies secure their Workplace by Facebook access. Today’s modern workplaces recognise that people want to use tools they are familiar with to collaborate at work. Now Workplace by Facebook customers can utilise OneLogin single sign-on across mobile, web and desktop with the ease of one-click multi-factor authentication.”
Key benefits of OneLogin’s integration with Workplace by Facebook include:
• Single Sign-on (SSO): OneLogin uses SAML 2.0 to sign users into Workplace by Facebook eliminating the need for users to create or remember usernames and passwords. It’s a simple one click login process.
• External Directory Integration such as AD and LDAP: OneLogin’s zero-config Active Directory Connector can be installed in minutes with no server restarts or firewall changes. OneLogin also supports LDAP directories, Google Apps, and HR directories such as Workday.
• User Provisioning: OneLogin automatically creates, updates and deletes users in Workplace by Facebook accounts based on flexible mappings to Workplace by Facebook.
• Multi-factor Authentication: OneLogin provides an extra layer of protection with OneLogin’s free smartphone app or a pre-integrated third-party solution from RSA, SafeNet, Duo Security or VASCO.
