Workshare Integrates With Active Directory For Secure Single Sign-On

Workshare AD and SSO allows companies to synchronize their existing log-in credentials, simplifying collaboration



MARCH 13, LONDON, UK – Workshare, a leading provider of secure enterprise collaboration applications, today announced its integration with Active Directory (AD) / Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) for secure single sign-on (SSO). Workshare AD and SSO allows companies to synchronize their existing log-in credentials, simplifying collaboration.

Single sign-on increases productivity across the enterprise from any device by eliminating the number of log-in credentials that employees have to remember. Single sign-on capabilities are enabled by PingONE, which specializes in providing SSO options to third-party software partners via its PingFederate technology. In addition to standards-based SSO, PingONE automates user management to Workshare's collaboration platform – all while ensuring that identity information is safe and secure behind clients' firewalls.

Workshare integration with AD and SSO allows users to securely access Workshare's unique document-level comparison and data policy enforcement features in a highly secure environment. It also enables IT professionals to reduce the time spend spent provisioning user accounts.

"Enterprises are always looking for ways to increase security and productivity, and this integration allows for both," said Anthony Foy, CEO of Workshare. "It makes enterprise collaboration simple."
