  • Simple, strong security
  • Single-sign-on is super convenient
  • Easily view and access various work apps
  • Previously, the setup I had sent a push notification to verify which was a bit inconvenient, but now there's a quicker auto-sign-in option (still very secure) that speeds up the process
  • Some basic UI improvements could be nice, just to jazz up the interface a bit
  • User management and provisioning is a bit clunky.

  • Single sign on - sign in once per day to access any app
  • Conditional access - block overseas access
  • Integrations to third party tools
  • Integrations with single sign on - however this does require third parties to work more with Oauth systems
  • Direct integrations with tools with plugins. Eg Wordpress websites, atlassian tools etc

  • Single Sign-On
  • App Integration
  • Bring your Own Device
  • The mobile app opens to the browser which can be a bit annoying especially if you are signing in with a work account. It would be a lot easier and straight to the point if it recognized you have the mobile app.
  • It logs you out pretty often which can be a bit painful to have to relogin to things every week.
  • Customization of the application homepage

  • Secure access regardless of device.
  • Multiple app integrations.
  • Supports bring your own device.
  • The mobile app opens to the browser. It would be nice if it recognized you have the mobile app of the app you're trying to open, and it opens that instead of a browser.
