Google G Suite


Google Workspace is a collection of cloud computing, productivity and collaboration tools, software and products developed and marketed by Google.

Using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), a user can use their managed Google account credentials to sign in to enterprise cloud applications via single sign-on (SSO). An identity and access management (IAM) service provides administrators with a single place to manage all users and cloud applications. You don't have to manage individual user IDs and passwords tied to individual cloud applications for each of your users. An IAM service provides your users with a unified sign-on across all their enterprise cloud applications.
