SSO with G Suite & O365 Credentials

By Greg Keller Posted March 1, 2017

G Suite and Office 365 are great productivity and collaboration tools, but they don’t serve as a directory.

Those G Suite and Office 365 identities aren’t portable to laptops or workstations, legacy applications, AWS cloud servers, your WiFi infrastructure, and more. In fact, if you are interested in leveraging those credentials elsewhere you are largely out of luck.

There are a few options out there to do more with G Suite and Office 365 credentials. One route is to put a server on-prem and use that as your central identity management platform and then federate identities to the cloud. But this approach is counterproductive. Didn’t you move to the cloud to get away from on-prem systems and self management of solutions in the first place?

There’s also a more cloud-forward way. In this article, we’ll help explain how Directory-as-a-Service® can help you achieve SSO with G Suite & O365 credentials.
