True Single Sign-On™ With SAML And LDAP

By Rajat Bhargava Posted August 12, 2016

App Access

In the past, LDAP was regarded as just another part in the entire scheme of authentication protocols, existing alongside RADIUS, SAML, OAuth, among others.

On the other side of this, simply using just LDAP as the sole solution across the board doesn’t cut it either because not everything talks LDAP.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a multi-protocol solution that could take a largely LDAP-based approach, while including SAML-based SSO solutions?

The Solution You Seek Exists

Take a look at the quick video below to see how JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service® can streamline application access across protocols, including LDAP:
