Enable SSO for BGL


BGL offers single sign-on via SAML integration with Practice Protect. This provides a seamless login experience to the BGL platform using IdP-initiated SAML.

Take note that BGL will charge the firm a one-time fee of $2,200.00 (including GST) to activate SAML. This is charged upon signing the BGL SAML agreement.

Practice Protect will configure this on your behalf. Please send us an email at support@practiceprotect.com
