Unlock with Single Sign On (SSO) enables enterprise customers to unlock 1Password accounts using Okta. 1Password stated that it is planning to add sign-on options with Azure AD and Duo in the coming months.
“Securing employees at scale is no small task. At 1Password, we believe that the foundation of enterprise security is secure employees, and we’re driven by the principle that the safe thing must be easy by default,” said Steve Won, chief product officer at 1Password. “SSO plays a central role in enterprise security. Unlock with SSO was designed with a trusted device model, so that even if a user’s identity provider credentials are compromised, 1Password ensures attackers won’t be able to access customers’ vault.”
The new feature is designed to work with existing workflows and help secure employees across authentication methods of their choice, according to the company in its press release.
Vaults can now be unlocked with a single click with SSO utilizing zero-knowledge architecture and end-to-end encryption. 1Password can be used to share any business secrets including credit cards, passkeys, SSH keys, shared identities, and sensitive documents.
Admins can also ensure that new and current employees receive the appropriate level of access, and implement firewall and multi-factor authentication (MFA) protocols, geographic region limitations, and other proven methods.
Unlock with SSO is now available to 1Password Business customers.
