SAML stands for Security Assertion Markup Language.

It is an XML-based, open-standard data format for exchanging authentication and authorisation data between an IdP (Identity Provider) and SP (Service Provider).

It is a widely adopted standard within Enterprise software for more than 15 years, with reports of more than 97% of Enterprises and SaaS companies now supporting it.

The primary goal of SAML is to provide a web-browser based SSO (Single Sign-on) function, in a secure and dependable manner.

The main benefits to businesses adopting SAML are low to zero programming required for system integration and a proven standard for data exchange.

AuthStack allows for connections to be setup in a matter of minutes, without the need to interface and interact with third party developers or IT teams.
