Single sign-on (SSO) is a technology that allows users to securely access multiple applications and websites with just one set of credentials. SSO simplifies the login process, improves the user experience, and enhances the security of online services.
Bevy supports integration of SSO for our customers. This means that your users can log in to your Bevy community using the same protocol they use to sign in to their other accounts. For example, if your users have a SAML account, they can use it to access your Bevy community without creating a separate username and password.
Some benefits of using SSO with Bevy are:
- It increases user satisfaction and engagement. Users do not have to remember multiple passwords or go through multiple login screens. They can access your Bevy community with a single click.
- It reduces the risk of password breaches. Users can create stronger passwords for their SSO accounts and avoid reusing them across different services. SSO also reduces the chances of phishing attacks, as users do not have to enter their credentials on untrusted websites.
- It lowers the IT costs and workload. You do not have to manage user accounts and passwords for your Bevy community. You can rely on the SSO provider to handle the authentication and authorization process.
- You can also easily integrate with existing identity providers in your company, such as Okta.
Bevy supports several SSO providers, and each provider has specific configuration requirements. The providers Bevy supports include:
- OAuth 2.0
- OpenID Connect
