Google announced that Cloud and Workspace accounts will now support single sign -on (SSO) from third-party identity providers with a new security boost. The company said it hopes this innovation will allow customers to ” easier access Google’s services using existing identity systems .”

Google has supported SSO via the widely available SAML protocol for over a decade, but allowing multiple SAML 2.0-based identity providers should increase the tech giant’s interest in IT administrators around the world.

Matthew Soldo , Product Manager for Google Workspace Identity , explained on the company’s blog about Cloud systems how it will result when companies often work with multiple identity providers. Soldo hopes that adding support for multiple identity providers will allow companies and employees to access Google Cloud without the time-consuming migrations that often cause complex migrations and issues .

Google Aims to Bring Business Customers to Cloud Services

Google Cloud administrators can enable up to 100 profiles from the Admin console . The setup involves entering some basic data such as the login URL and an X.509 certificate for authentication. The company’s future plans for single sign-on operations include adding support for OIDC, another protocol that can be used alongside SAML-based identity providers. This is expected to arrive later in 2022 .

To make its cloud services as attractive as possible to business customers, Google is rolling out several security updates , including warnings about potentially dangerous changes to Google accounts .
