Single sign-on (SSO) in Azure Active Directory (AD) allows users to easily and securely sign on to cloud applications using their Azure account credentials. Without SSO, administrators need to create and update user accounts for various applications, including Office 365, G Suite, and Salesforce. Also, without SSO, users must remember multiple passwords to sign in to each of these applications. SSO simplifies matters, as it allows users to access multiple applications by signing in once.
To authenticate a user to the cloud application for SAML-based SSO, Azure AD utilizes the user’s Azure AD account. SAML-based SSO enables administrators to map users to specific application roles based on the rules they define, making it easier for users to access applications.
ADSelfService Plus is an enterprise SSO solution that provides users in hybrid AD environments with seamless, one-click access to all SAML-enabled cloud applications, as seen insee Figure 1, using their on-premises domain user account credentials. ADSelfService Plus also lets administrators enforce OU and group-based policies to control and restrict access to critical business applications.

ADSelfService Plus offers users a single portal for quick access to all cloud applications in hybrid Active Directory environments, without requiring additional logins. It leverages AD by allowing users to use their domain credentials to access cloud applications, ensuring they’ll no longer need to remember multiple passwords.
