New Login Experience - Spambrella Proofpoint

Microsoft Integrated SSO

Today, we allow users to sign into the portal with either a username and password or by manually selecting Microsoft to authenticate their account credentials.

In our new login experience, organizations can choose to force their users to authenticate with only their Microsoft credentials, creating a seamless Single Sign On experience. Users will be prompted to enter their Microsoft credentials immediately after entering their email address.

Prerequisites

In order to force users to authenticate with Microsoft, the following conditions need to be true:

  • The user must have an active user account in Spambrella
  • The organization must be using and have synced users to Microsoft
  • The organization must have a valid Azure connection in Spambrella
  • The following setting must be enabled (will be available after the release)
