Properly configured single sign-on (SSO) can be a vital element of your cyber and network security toolset. You can reduce your company's attack surfaces by slashing the services your team has to log in to and the number of credentials they handle.

Set up SSO in SEON to make your fraud-fighting experience seamless and secure.

Using Azure AD with SEON

Microsoft is one of the largest providers of business and enterprise software solutions globally and a major cloud computing provider with the Azure platform. Using the SAML protocol, you can easily configure your Azure Active Directory (AD) to handle your teams' logins to SEON.

Before you start, you'll need admin access to your Azure AD service and your company's SEON account. Visit the Settings page in SEON and double-check that you can access the SSO settings on the Authentication tab before continuing.


Step-by-Step: Setting up SSO with Azure AD

1. Head to Settings in SEON.

2. Open the Authentication tab.

3. Click the toggle next to Turn on SSO Login.

4. Add a name to the Company field.

5. Register a Microsoft Azure account if you do not already have one or log in.

6. Open the Azure Services view.

7. Create a Resource and Choose Azure Active Directory. (It's best practice to create a new environment for every service you want to test SSO with.)

8. Select Enterprise applications in the left menu.

9. Click the New application button to create your first application. 

10. Now select Create your own application above the templates offered.

11. Name your application (e.g., SEON) and select Integrate any other application you don't find in the gallery (Non-gallery).

18. Replace the company element of the URL strings with the Company name you set in Step 4.

19. Click Save.

20. Click on Edit in the User Attributes and Claims box to continue the setup.

21. Configure the attributes below as needed. You can click Add new claim to create a new attribute. The table below contains all the information you need:

34. Jump back over to Azure AD and copy the Azure AD Identifier URL.
