What is SAML?

SAML stands for Security Assertion Markup Language, and it was created to leverage the XML meta-language into a secure open-standard for data exchange between parties, including authorization and authentication. The keystone of the SAML standard is it's enablement of single sign on for all services on a website.

Why you need SAML for your eCommerce website

Security. The word that is on everyone's mind and is leading customer concerns. In an age where customer data is more vulnerable than ever, security continuously ranks at or near the top of decision factors in online transactions.

Ease of use. Leveraging the secure access management allows you to simplify the login and authentication process for both external and internal users. Not many other implementations can improve both customer and employee experiences while increasing security.

SAML SSO (Single Sign-on)

As mentioned previously, single sign-on is a major component of SAML. Single sign on is the function in which a user can enter their login credentials once, and be granted access to multiple independent systems. Single sign-on not only saves the user time, but also reduces potential password fatigue and reduces the chances of a forgotten password to a specific section of your site.
