Enquire uses leading edge standards based protocols to provide authentication capabilities. Clients can choose to utilise Enquire’s in-built authentication mechanisms which provide the traditional User Name and Password model or take advantage of Enquire’s capability to integrate with a Federated identity provider through standards based authentication protocols.
Enquire provides Single Sign On through integration with cloud Identity Providers (IdP) such as Azure AD or an ‘on-premise’ directory enabled services such as Microsoft’s Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) or any LDAP compliant directory service. Enquire can provide Single Sign On through with an existing ADFS enabled directory utilising SAML2.
In a federated model, Enquire will not store any user credentials, this will be managed, maintained and stored by the Identity Provider’s (IdP) user store (directory). In such cases this will be IdP’s such as Azure AD or an on-premise source via ADFS.
Enquire offers highly configurable permissions across all areas of the solution. Roles can be configured to allow consistent levels of access that align to business function. In addition, global roles can be configured to provide ease of access management. Active Directory security groups can also be used to determine access levels across the solution.
When Enquire is integrated with ADFS, SAML, HR systems, the integrated system will be the source of truth for account management.
Enquire offers a wide range of integrated features to streamline administration and improve lifecycle management.
