Teleport can authenticate to both internal and external applications through the use of a built-in identity provider.
Improved User Experience
Teleport SAML SSO streamlines the login process by allowing users to access multiple applications using identity. This reduces the need to remember multiple usernames and passwords, resulting in a more seamless and convenient experience.
By centralizing authentication for GitLab, SAML SSO helps minimize the risk of security breaches, such as phishing and password-related attacks. It also enables organizations to enforce strong authentication policies and monitor access to resources more effectively.
Reduced Administrative Overhead
SSO simplifies user management by centralizing identity and access control. This reduces the need for IT and DevOps administrators to manage multiple sets of credentials for users across different applications, leading to lower administrative overhead and increased efficiency.
Easier Integration and Collaboration
SAML SSO facilitates seamless integration and collaboration between organizations and applications, both on-premises and cloud-based. By implementing a standard authentication protocol, organizations can leverage a Teleport deployment to easily access other applications used by teams.
