Bottom Line

OneLogin Unified Access Management Platform is more than an SSO solution. With customers ranging from small businesses to large enterprises, it is a good fit for small to midsize enterprises needing a comprehensive access management platform.

Product Description

OneLogin Unified Access Management Platform is a single sign-on (SSO) solution providing one-click access to all apps in the cloud and behind the firewall. The platform uses multi-factor authentication (MFA) to strengthen access control with cloud-based authentication solutions and prevent unauthorized users from accessing corporate data with passwords alone. It includes a catalog of over 5,000 pre-integrated applications.

OneLogin offers features such as network access centralized in the cloud directory and mobile identity management, which makes enterprise apps accessible with a single click on smartphones and tablets. It also uses adaptive authentication and machine learning to detect high-risk login attempts and trigger additional authentication factor requests – or reduce authentication requirements in trusted instances. New features include OneLogin Access, which allows companies to manage access for on-premises and cloud-based applications with a single Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solution.

Markets and Use Cases

OneLogin Unified Access Management Platform has core services such as SSO, MFA and user provisioning with flexible configuration that make it a fit for companies of any sizes. OneLogin has customers from less than 10 employees to over 100,000.

The primary use case for OneLogin’s solution is workforce to cloud-based applications (B2E), enabling companies to adopt, deploy, secure, and manage access to software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications for their workforce. A significant percentage of OneLogin’s customers leverage the platform for managing access for business partners such as agencies and suppliers (B2B use cases) as well as for customers and consumers (B2C use cases).
