Pre-Integration of Company's SaaS Platform with Azure Active Directory Enhances Secure Authentication via Single Sign-On for Enterprise Customers
ENCINO, Calif., April 28, 2020 — Research Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: RSSS), a pioneer in providing cloud-based workflow solutions for R&D driven organizations, and its wholly owned subsidiary Reprints Desk, today announced the addition of the Article Galaxy research platform to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, simplifying single sign-on (SSO) set up via pre-integration with Azure Active Directory (AD).
Azure AD, Microsoft's SSO and access management service, supports more than 2,800 pre-integrated software as a service (SaaS) applications. Automated integration with Azure AD simplifies user authentication across enterprise organizations. Through centralized user account management, administrators can automatically add or remove user access to applications for entire departments. Rather than signing in to each application separately, users only need to sign on once to access all applications for which they've been provisioned access.
"We're excited to offer our customers a fast, simplified way to access Article Galaxy with the convenience of Azure SSO,” said Chris Atwood, Director of Engineering and Implementation at Reprints Desk. “While we've always offered customized solutions to configure and integrate with Azure, the pre-integration makes the process a snap. Customers can simply download the Article Galaxy app from the Azure Marketplace and send us the configuration details. It really makes it easy to add secure authentication to a customer’s workflow within a matter of minutes."
Article Galaxy, Reprints Desk's award-winning and robust document delivery platform, provides research-driven organizations with one-click access to scientific journal articles, along with advanced literature search and reference management tools.
