From today, all Tines plans will include Single-Sign-On support as standard. Previously, SSO/SAML was only available to customers on an Enterprise plan. In this post, we explore our rationale for making this change and include examples for how to use Tines with popular IAM providers OneLogin and Okta.

Security should not cost extra

We’re proud of fact that the Tines Security Automation and Orchestration platform is secure and private by design. All Tines customers, regardless of price plan, receive mandatory two-factor authentication on all accounts and granular control over data residency and retention. Additionally, Tines leverages a single tenant architecture, meaning every instance has dedicated and segregated infrastructure.

However, until today, only customers on an Enterprise plan could avail of SSO/SAML. Identity and access management is (or should be!) a priority for every security team, not just large enterprises. So, we asked ourselves why we only support SSO/SAML for a subset of security teams. Outside of “hey, it’s what everyone else does”, we didn’t have a good answer. Today, we’re fixing that. Updated information on our plans are available here – for pricing contact hello@tines.io.
