User Guide: Benefits of using Volt MX Identity

Identity

Volt MX Foundry identity services help you secure your application by adding an authentication layer.

You can set up an identity service based on the type of the users who are allowed to access your application. To restrict access to your company's internal audience, use Microsoft Active Directory authentication. To allow access of your application to a larger audience, you can use enterprise identity providers (Microsoft Active Directory, Volt MX SAP Gateway, Open LDAP, OAuth 2.0, Salesforce, Custom Identity Service, SAML 2.0, Siteminder ) and social identity providers (Google, Linkedin, Instagram, Amazon, Microsoft, Yahoo, BOX, Facebook.)
