With the exponential growth in the number of cloud applications employees use, organizations have begun looking at identity management software to manage their employees’ credentials. With the right identity management software, you can provide secure, one-click access to all your business applications.

Support for single sign-on (SSO) is an integral part of any identity management software. Expanding on that, it should also have a provision to extend SSO support to any industry-standard cloud application you throw at it. There’s no better way to achieve this than with SSO support for custom applications.

ManageEngine knows what the market wants, and ADSelfService Plus effectively delivers it. Whether it’s an internally-developed or third-party cloud application, if it supports SAML 2.0, then ADSelfService Plus has you covered. With SSO support for over 100 popular cloud applications and any custom SAML 2.0 application, ADSelfService Plus gives you the freedom to adopt almost any application without worrying about the impact of additional passwords on end users.



In SAML SSO, users’ identities are established through the exchange of digitally-signed signatures between the identity provider (IDP) and service provider (SP) applications, eliminating the need for users to enter their password individually in every application.

  • Restrict users from exchanging their credentials between cloud applications, preventing hackers from getting a peek at private data.
  • Enable secure cloud access with two-factor authentication through a variety of methods including Duo Security, RSA SecurID, a smart card, RADIUS, an SMS/email-based verification code, and Google Authenticator.
  • Restrict users from entering their passwords in any external links to almost completely mitigate the possibility of a phishing attack.
