OneLogin is our best pick for SSO solutions for small businesses because it offers a customizable service that can easily scale up with your growing business. It is a user-friendly product with a straightforward implementation process, and has little learning curve for the end user. While an IT administrator will have to set it up, there should be very little training required for the staff that will use OneLogin's SSO solution on a day-to-day basis. Overall, OneLogin marries simplicity, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness to make it a prime choice for small businesses.

OneLogin's unique features and versatility makes it a great choice for companies that are looking for an innovative SSO solution that can adapt to their specific needs. These factors make OneLogin our best pick for small business SSO solutions.

View all our recommendations for SSO solutions on our best picks page.

Pricing

OneLogin offers several pricing tiers. The first level is Free and includes SSO for three applications and five personal applications. The next tier, the Starter subscription, costs $2 per user per month (25-user minimum) and includes SSO and MFA for all of your applications. The Enterprise subscription costs $4 per user per month and includes multiple directory-type integration, multiple languages, custom reports and security policies.

For those looking for complete SSO solutions, the Unlimited subscription costs $8 per user per month and includes custom fields and mapping, user provisioning and several additional integrations, including a $2/user/month virtual LDAP.

Key Features

OneLogin is a flexible SSO solution that allows administrators to tailor the identity management process to suit their organization's specific needs. Its compatibility with numerous directory types, including AD, LDAP and Google Apps, makes it useful for any organization, as does the unique methods OneLogin offers for managing groups.

For end users, OneLogin maintains an easily navigated and simple-to-use portal that grants users access to permissioned applications with a single set of sign-on credentials. Approved applications appear in one central location and, once users utilize their SSO credentials, can be accessed with a single click. The user portal can be customized to match company aesthetic and branding, as well.

Mapping: OneLogin maintains a unique mapping tool that allows administrators to manage security groups directly, rather than synchronizing them with the integrated directory. In effect, OneLogin mapping automates the user provisioning process.

Self-registration pages: OneLogin's self-registration feature set the SSO solution apart from the competition by enabling users to request accounts to access specific applications themselves. These pages are subject to administrative controls, but streamline user ability to collaborate with partner organizations or grant temporary access to the SSO ecosystem, either to temps or interns. For administrators, these types of self registered users can all be added to one group, which is subject to specific permissions and restrictions.

Multi-factor authentication (MFA): Like all our best picks, OneLogin maintains an MFA feature that ensures users' identities a minimum of two times for an added layer of security. Administrators can set MFA policies during implementation and modify those settings later.

Policies: Administrators are given a great latitude of control over setting policies and user restrictions. One of our favorite policies is the ability to control password complexity, as well as the option to mandate regular password resets and limit users' abilities to reuse old passwords. Like MFA, these policies boost the security of OneLogin's overall system and put network administrators in the driver's seat.

Limitations

OneLogin suffered a data breach in 2017 that resulted in the loss of thousands of customers' data. OneLogin responded to the hack quickly and secured its systems, but the data theft that occurred was significant, and gave the hackers the ability to decrypt sensitive information. On the other hand, OneLogin's swift response to re-secure its system is an encouraging step that the company is keeping a close watch for data breaches; since last year's hack, there have been no similar issues.

Finally, OneLogin's self-registration pages and mapping are excellent tools, but they also require a bit more heavy lifting on the administrator's part for setup. However, these additional tools boost the flexibility and customization available to small businesses.
