Fountain supports the Single Sign On (SSO) functionality for users. Companies that want their employees to use centralized, company-controlled single sign-on or “SSO” to log into Fountain can add Fountain as a “service provider” (login destination) to many cloud and on-premise identity providers, as well as to custom authentication solutions that support the SAML 2.0 standard. This article will help you set up SSO with Fountain for your organization.
