Microsoft Azure with AWS SSO

OPSWAT MetaAccess can be easily integrated with an Azure & AWS SSO integration to ensure that a device is compliant with the organization's security policy before it is granted access to AWS Console. This ensures that the user is not only authenticated by Azure, but also a device the user uses to access SaaS applications tested for risks and vulnerabilities such as infections or outdated operating systems, BEFORE it access an organization's cloud services.
