G Suite and Google Cloud Identity Premium now support password vaulted apps for single sign-on

What’s changing 

We're making it easy for admins to enable single sign-on for thousands of additional apps that don’t support modern authentication standards like SAML and OIDC. The combination of standards based and password-vaulted app support will deliver one of the largest SSO app catalogs in the industry. 

Who’s impacted 

Admins and end users

Why you’d use it 

Google supports single sign-on for apps in the G Suite Marketplace, apps that support SAML or OIDC as an authentication mechanism, and apps that leverage LDAP for sign-on. While this existing solution works for many apps, some of our customers rely on apps that don’t support these standards. others don’t support federated single sign-on. This release provides seamless one-click access for users and a single point of management, visibility, and control for admins.

With password vaulting, admins can:

  • Manage credentials in a single space,
  • Securely enable access to shared credentials,
  • Manage access to app credentials based on group membership, and
  • Log and access reports on usage of the credentials within their organization.

End users can view and login to their apps with a single click within a new user dashboard.
