SAML login support for cloud console

This is a must have for many organisations web based tools. Also helps with SSO and multi factor logon requests which can usually be configured at the identity provider.

    We very much need this in our business. Is this anywhere in the road map?

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes please! as 2FA becomes a requirement for cloud based services adding SAML would make Sophos more competitive to the likes of Symantec

  • Brad commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    SCIM, SAML or OIDC. Doesn't matter as long as you build it so we can integrate. Okta allows us to create our own connections so maybe, get something whereby Okta users, One-Login...etc can create these connections. You're supposed to be a security company... act like one at all levels!

    Can’t believe this isn’t in Sophos Central! Other AV vendors have this in their cloud offering and for good reason.

    With decommissioning of access still an issue in 2018, having decentralised cloud accounts increases the risk of inactive accounts not being decommissioned and means that we have to remember yet another set of credentials. Therefore increasing the risk of passwords being written down.

    Not only this but let us control our own passwords, so we can set the password complexity rules. Just like we do with our IdP.

    I for one think that it will take Sophos years to implement this. If at all!?

    Also, historically they are not known to implement something unless they see the need for it, not their customers.

    Same boat here, We are in the process of defining a SSO requirement that will force us to replace Sophos since it does not have SSO+MFA capability via Okta. Good excuse to switch to a next-gen AV I guess.

    Bring this into life so we can add it appropriately to our Okta SSO! Hard to believe a security product does not have this as a standard.

    Please add SSO this is a must for us - especially a security application!

  • Lance commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Boggles the mind that there is a 2018 security product without support for SSO?

  • Andrew Huddleston commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is essential for industry compliance, and really should be/coming a default for security companies. Please bring this standard feature forwards, autobahn style.

    We also use Okta and rely heavily on SAML authentication with MFA in every possible situation. This would be a HUGE bonus for keeping existing customers and bringing on new customers. Here are a few other similar ideas:
