SSO has become a new normal through which a user can authenticate with multiple enterprise applications without having to login to each application individually. SAML has been accepted world-wide as one of the most secure ways of implementing enterprise SSO.
SAML can be used to perform SSO authentication and authorisation using Active Directory, OKTA etc. systems.
