Easy and secure single sign-on for popular work apps

Millions of Google Apps for Work customers rely on Google to protect their employees’ login information for Google Apps services like Google Drive and Gmail. With this and previous launches, we’re extending that ease and security to additional applications that businesses rely on.

SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) 2.0 allows individuals to use their Google login credentials to sign in to various enterprise cloud applications. In October 2015, we launched support for SAML 2.0 for more than 15 popular SaaS providers, including Salesforce, Workday, and Dropbox. Today, we’re excited to announce that several additional apps are now pre-integrated with our systems, including Microsoft Office 365, Facebook at Work, Concur, Box, and Slack. This adds to the hundreds of apps we already support through the Google Apps Marketplace and OpenID Connect.

This launch not only makes the sign-in process easier for employees, it simplifies the management of end user IDs and passwords for Apps admins as well. For SAML set-up details and a full list of pre-integrated apps, please visit the Help Center.
