True Seamless Single Sign On

The Overt Shibboleth IdP provides access to web-based resources without needing to login multiple times.

Once a user has logged onto the institutional network they are automatically signed into the Overt IdP. This means that they do not need to login a second time to access a resource that is protected by Shibboleth/ SAML.

At Overt Software, we understand it’s vital to be able to obtain feedback on the systems you’re using. That’s why our simple & intuitive Dashboard comes free with all our Deploy Anywhere range of services.
