Their mission is to connect one billion people through the use of their platform by 2031. To achieve this, BoxyHQ’s enterprise-ready SSO would provide the reliable authentication they needed to maintain their customer's security and trust.
Cal.com, a leading scheduling and appointment management platform, embarked on a journey to implement enterprise Single Sign-On (SSO) in response to growing demand from enterprises and government organizations.
Reasons for Adopting Enterprise Single Sign-On
The decision to implement enterprise SSO stemmed from a significant demand from various sectors, including enterprises and government organizations, that were eager to leverage Cal.com's capabilities. Clients were increasingly seeking the convenience and security offered by SSO to streamline user access across multiple systems and services.
