Google Docs is an essential component of the Google Apps suite, allowing users to share documents, while leveraging the benefits associated with running services in the cloud.
Google Docs security, combined with convenient and easy access, is critical to the success of any organization’s strategy for deriving the intended benefits of Google Docs. Implementing a viable Single Sign On, or SSO, solution for Google Docs is the mechanism by which organizations can realize the security and ease of use that users are looking for with Google Docs.
SAML 2.0 is required by Google in order for organizations to enable Single Sign On in to Google Docs.
In a representative SSO Easy case study, one client elected to use EasyConnect, the SAML 2.0 and SAML 1.1 software product from SSO Easy, to enable SSO to Google Docs.
Despite having no prior SAML experience, the client successfully implemented the EasyConnect solution, enabling SSO to Google Docs, in just 1 day.
No programming or coding was required by the client to implement the solution.
