The international company releases Nulab Pass today. The new service will add an extra layer of security to all Nulab’s accounts with single sign-on (SSO) via SAML Authentication.
New York – After enabling support for WebAuthn, Nulab launches Nulab Pass. The new security service will allow the use of single sign-on (SSO) via SAML Authentication on all Nulab’s software: project management software Backlog, cloud-based diagramming software Cacoo, and chat app Typetalk. Any customer using a subscription to one of these apps can now subscribe to the new service too.
Designed to make the use of Nulab’s software a safer and faster experience, Nulab Pass will strengthen the level of security, reducing the risk of lost or weak passwords and phishing attempts.
Thanks to SAML, users will authenticate through their company’s identity provider, leveraging Public Key Infrastructure. This procedure will actively protect them against hackers attacks and data breaches while facilitating the sharing of sensitive information.
With SSO, users will be able to quickly and safely sign in to Nulab’s software with just one ID and password. They won’t have to remember application-specific passwords anymore or spend time to go through identity verification each time for each app.
“For security reasons, companies always require their employees to use strong passwords for their applications. But secure passwords usually aren’t that easy to remember” comments Nulab’s CMO Shinsuke Tabata. “With Nulab Pass, our customers can easily and securely switch from one app to another with just one single set of credentials. It’s safer, faster, and it enables an improved user workflow.”
“We are investing several resources on enhancing our users’ security,” adds Mr Tabata. “After WebAuthn, SSO, and SAML, we are planning to introduce more features, including user provisioning and an organization audit log.”
