Intel brings Cloud SSO to Salesforce's is integrating Intel's Cloud SSO to provide enterprise customers with single sign-on access to and thousands of cloud-based apps.

Intel is bringing a cloud-based identity solution to's social and mobile development platform,, as another option for secure and convenient access to popular enterprise apps.

Backed by security solutions from its subsidiary McAfee, Intel's Cloud SSO offers single sign-on capabilities using credential to log into and thousands of connected applications, such as Google Apps, Box's cloud storage space and Cisco WebEx.

Although single sign-on is a lot simpler for most web users -- especially because users can log in faster and only have to use one set of credentials -- there will likely be plenty of questions about security as well.

On its Cloud SSO, Intel is putting a lot of power in the hands of IT managers to regulate the single sign-on process. This includes user account provisioning/de-provisioning, a portal for designated authorized cloud apps, and a two-factor strong authentication system for access from mobile devices.

From there, enterprise customers can also sync up the Cloud SSO data with existing on-premise and cloud-based identity and account infrastructures.

The trial version of Intel Cloud SSO is available immediately from Intel and on Salesforce’s AppExchange marketplace.
