Synk.to is the first cloud-first identity management (IDM) platform! This means that you can now integrate multiple software as a service (SaaS) apps into your Synk.to system to seamlessly manage users and groups across your organization.
More and more companies use SaaS systems instead of on-prem solutions. Modern companies estimate that 70% of the business apps that they use today are based on SaaS.
Users and groups synchronization between different SaaS solutions via SCIM protocol is usually available only on SaaS Enterprise plans that cost 2,5x more on average comparing to Pro/Team/Regular SaaS plans. If you don’t need SaaS Enterprise plans, but need to sync users and groups between SaaS systems, Synk.to is for you!
In 2021, organizations worldwide were using an average amount of 110 software as a service applications (according to Statista). If you are an admin of such organization, it can be a hassle to keep users and groups in sync across all business SaaS systems. Meanwhile, timely access management is a crucial part of every cybersecurity, privacy and compliance program of every modern organization.
Synk.to connects to different SaaS solutions using regular Admin APIs that usually allow to manage users and groups, but don’t require Enterprise plans.
In order to connect SaaS system to Synk.to you need to provide limited API key or OAuth access. There are usually two types of access that you can provide to Synk.to depending on your needs:
In order to start user synchronization you need create account in Synk.to application and:
The connected system can be either Source System or Replica System:
Replica System is a system mimicking user and group changes from Source System. There is one more protection feature build-in to Synk.to is the ability to limit operations with users on a connection level.
Without that options Synk.to won’t do any critical actions (creation, deletion and suspension) on users in Replica System.
You can pause the synchronization any time, force connection synchronization (in order not to wait the synchronization interval), view connection log, edit or delete connection. If you have any questions left, please, check our FAQ or send them to [email protected].
