Single Sign On - support SAML 2.0

Podio currently works with Single Sign On (SSO) vendors like OneLogin and Okta by supporting Secure Web Authetication (essentially, password vaulting). In the SMB market these days, the company may use quite a number of online and SaaS products, which makes something stronger than a password vault really desirable. What's needed is a way to turn on and turn off access to all the products from one place (e..g, when new staff are added or terminated). To do that, a necessary step is for Podio to add SAML 2.0 to its integration with the likes of OneLogin and Okta.

We now support SSO and SAML for new customers using Podio in a Citrix bundle: http://blog.podio.com/2017/03/20/security-features/ 

New customers (signing up from today) will have the ability to leverage ShareFile’s extensive security features and Single Sign-on to manage their employees on Podio.

All you need is a ShareFile account for your business (which will be helpful to back-up sensitive files) to keep track of employees and files. You can enable two-step verification, set specific password requirements or use the Single-Sign-on integration from a ShareFile Enterprise version and will automatically use the same features for Podio login.

This is a small step in the right direction and we hope to make two-factor authentication available for existing Podio customers as well in the future.

We've just setup SAML 2.0 so we can use SSO with Sharefile, if Podio offered the same ability that would be great. Users here hate having to remember another password and as Alex stated could make adding and removing employees easier :)

Hi,
does Podio has defined a roadmap status for SAML 2.0 support ?

I concur greatly with this request. What is the latest situation for SAML 2.0 support?

This is highly desirable from my point of view also. Identity management is a challenge with cloud solutions and those that give a SSO solution - SAML 2.0 being our preferred one, will get priority. Our Security people are currently working on a policy that could make it mandatory i.e. if you do not have it, we cannot buy it/renew it

Hi Sara,

Any news on this? We would really need this to be able to manage provisioning and deprovisioning of users. Having yet another system the needs to have users added and removed manually is not optimal for us.

We couldn't agree more.  This request has been out in Podio for over 3 years and at some point it will be a reason we may not be able to continue using the product/renew.

Please add SAML 2.0 to Podio!

Saw a post stating something about plans getting closer to SAML 2.0 in 2016.  It's approaching 2017.  Does Podio plan to support SAML 2.0 or not?  In my mind, with big breaches like Yahoo on the banner these days it's time to poop or leave the toilet as it were when it comes to password and security related mechanisms.  Podio?

Hi all,

We are planning to support Single Sign On for customers using Podio together with ShareFile later this year. I don't have a more specific ETA but it is planned :)

Hi, what about SAML 2.0 and connecting your old trusted customers, older than mars 2017?
