Security firm Ping Identity has launched a single sign-on (SSO) system for SMBs using cloud-based work apps.
PingOne for Groups is built on the PingOne cloud identity management service and is available as a free subscription for up to five applications and 50 users.
The firm claims PingOne is the only solution that makes SSO available for all organisations, rather than just large enterprises with a big IT budget.
Andras Cser, principal analyst for Forrester Research VP, said: "Many small and medium-size businesses know they can't afford to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to hire experienced Identity Access Management (IAM) pros for the care and feeding of an on-premises IAM system.
"Even large enterprises are considering eliminating on-premises IAM systems because of large licensing and support costs and long implementation times."
The product can be used by employees, customers and partners and is scalable too.
Marketing VP Roger Oberg said: "Today, every business relies on cloud apps. PingOne for Groups brings enterprise-grade identity management to businesses of all sizes so anyone can have secure SSO to popular apps like Salesforce, Google, Dropbox, Office365 and WebEx."
