What is Federated Access?
Federated access allows organizations to share identity information securely. It is an approach that links multiple separate systems in a trust using standard protocols like SAML so that users can move quickly between them securely. Federating access enables Single Sign-On within a federated domain.
What can we use Federated Access for?
Federated access can be used in various capacities, including identity management, SSO, access control, and more. It makes using multiple services, applications, websites, and cloud environments more efficient and secure as access is managed centrally instead of with each resource.
