Single sign on improves security and usability and integrates with major identity management solutions.
TORONTO, October 1, 2019 – Firmex, a Toronto-based global provider of virtual data room (VDR) and secure document sharing solutions used by more than 140,000 companies across 110 countries, announced today the availability of single sign on (SSO) for its VDR customers. Firmex SSO integrates with major identity management providers and enables Firmex administrators to easily control employee access to Firmex VDR technology.
Among the features and benefits of SSO, Firmex VDRs gain an extra layer of security through compatibility with the Secure Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 standard. SSO also simplifies user management and the VDR experience, where users are managed from a single location through an identity management provider. By using the same credentials to access their Firmex VDR along with other suites of applications across the enterprise, Firmex users will enjoy a more streamlined and secure login process.
“This latest SSO update to our virtual data rooms reflects Firmex’s commitment to continuously improve our product based on customer insights and feedback, so that we can offer the best combination of security, control, versatility, and value for our clients. We have seen growing adoption of our VDR technology among corporate users to share confidential information outside of the firewall, for mission critical processes in corporate development, finance, compliance, and across their supply chains,” said Firmex CEO Joel Lessem.
At launch, Firmex’s SSO integrates with OneLogin, Okta, Microsoft Active Directory, and Microsoft ADFS with additional integrations planned in the near future. SSO is included as part of a Firmex subscription at no additional cost. More information on Firmex’s SSO can be found on the Firmex Knowledge Base.
