Motivation for Implementing Enterprise SSO and Audit Logs

Unicis.Tech's motivation to implement Enterprise SSO and Audit Logs was driven by their commitment to enhancing security and compliance for their platform. These two key components play a crucial role in achieving these goals.

Enterprise Single Sign-On (SSO) simplifies user access by eliminating the need for users to repeatedly enter their credentials for different applications. This not only enhances convenience but also reduces the risk of phishing attacks and password fatigue.

Audit Logs track all user activity within an application, including login attempts, file access, and configuration changes. This data serves as a valuable resource for investigating security incidents, resolving issues, and complying with regulatory requirements.

Not to mention, Unicis.Tech is subject to various global regulations, including GDPR, ISO/IEC, PCI-DSS, and SOC 2. SSO and audit logs are essential for meeting these regulatory requirements, ensuring their platform remains compliant.

Choosing BoxyHQ's (Jackson) for SSO Solution

Ease of Use: BoxyHQ provided an intuitive and straightforward integration for SSO. It was easy to set up and configure, connecting seamlessly with various Identity Providers.

Open-Source and Affordability: BoxyHQ's status as an open-source enterprise SSO solution, utilizing familiar technologies like Next.js and embedded libraries, made it a cost-effective choice.

Security: BoxyHQ's adherence to industry-standard security protocols provided Unicis.Tech with complete control over their data, ensuring the security and privacy of their platform.

BoxyHQ's solution has helped our team save a lot of time. Prior to implementing BoxyHQ, we no longer needed to develop or integrate an expensive solution to connect to Identity Providers (SSO) and build our own Audit Log service.
