This guide explores the best methods for securing Office 365 using SecureAuth IdP, including which techniques offer the best combination of security and efficiency for your organization, some of the risks and considerations for WS-Trust and WS-Fed, plus step-by-step instructions for configuring single sign-on (SSO).
SecureAuth? IdP provides adaptive access control, empowering organizations to determine identities with confidence. Two-factor authentication is no longer enough to protect enterprise identities. Progressive companies are looking for next generation technologies to help them determine their varying identities with confidence and even prevent attackers with valid user credentials.
SAML is a standard that facilitates the exchange of security information. Developed by OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards), SAML is an XML-based framework. SAML enables different organizations (with different security domains) to securely exchange authentication and authorization information.

While already having a SecureAuth installation, ESCO felt SecureAuth was the best fit to address user experience, performance, as well as security of data. Providing a single sign-on process with mobile app functionality, SecureAuth is preventing the misuse of stolen credentials.
