Configure SAML single sign-on

When you configure Trend Cloud One to use SAML single sign-on (SSO), users signing in to your organization's portal can seamlessly sign in to Trend Cloud One without another credential check.

Typically, there are two people required to configure Trend Cloud One to use SAML single sign-on (SSO): a Trend Cloud One administrator and an administrator for the identity provider.

Trend Cloud One uses the SAML 2.0 protocol for authentication and has been tested with the following identity providers:

  • Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS)
  • Microsoft Entra ID
  • Okta
  • Google

In addition, any other identity provider compliant with SAML 2.0 is expected to function with Trend Cloud One.
