The Catalyst for Change

MonkeyFit recognized the necessity of implementing enterprise SSO to meet stringent security controls for a key client. This need was not just about securing data but also about laying a foundation for scalable growth. The choice of BoxyHQ, with its well-documented, open-source nature, was pivotal. It streamlined implementation and offered an adaptable framework that was crucial for MonkeyFit’s specific requirements.

Solutions and Benefits: A Dual-Benefit Approach

The adoption of BoxyHQ’s SSO solution brought about both direct and soft benefits. Directly, it simplified the integration process with identity providers, reducing development time significantly—by an estimated five sprints. This efficiency gain was not merely a measure of time saved but also a testament to the enriched knowledge base and accelerated development framework MonkeyFit now enjoys. Soft benefits, often overlooked, were equally transformative. The solution's Dockerized nature ensured zero downtime for critical functionalities like sign-in and signup processes. Moreover, by serving as middleware between identity providers, it extended support to both SAML and OIDC protocols, broadening MonkeyFit's appeal to a wider array of future clients.
