The OneLogin platform is an identity management system that uses single sign-on (SSO) and a cloud directory to enable organizations to manage user access to on-premises and cloud applications. It offers such identity management solutions as Smart Factor Authentication, Single sign-on (SSO) features, and Identity Access Management (IAM) for your workforce.
