Introduction – Single Sign-on (SSO) for Box

Practice Protect provides SSO, automated account provisioning for Box and other cloud apps

Businesses struggle with managing how employees use Internet-based file storage. They need to control the spread of sensitive corporate data and prevent security breaches from username and password combinations that may be shared across different apps.

Rather than prevent the use of file storage, wouldn’t it be better to support their use, but in a way that secures and protects data? Enterprise-grade identity and access management is key.

Practice Protect and Box simplify company collaboration and eliminate the hassles. Box lets people access their data from anywhere, on any device, and keeps files in sync across devices. Practice Protect makes it easy to deploy and manage employees’ access to corporate Box accounts.

With Practice Protect, you can centrally provision new users, create custom access policies, and automatically revoke access when needed. Thanks to SAML, employees can log in using their existing Practice Protect credentials from desktop or mobile devices without having to remember a unique, app-specific username or password.

Practice Protect helps lower the cost to roll out and manage Box and other cloud services, and improves user adoption, satisfaction and productivity.

What’s Included?

 Automated Account Provisioning

When you creates a new user in Practice Protect, Practice Protect can automatically create a Box account for them, with the correct authorization, and single sign-on access. When that user leaves, Practice Protect automatically revokes Box access — ensuring only the right users have access at all times.

Secure Browser Single Sign-on (SSO) with SAML

Provide one-click access to Box — without adding another username and password for users to remember. Practice Protect leverages SAML for secure authentication without passwords, to provide one-click access to Box and all of your other cloud and mobile apps.
