Prisma Cloud can apply password complexity rules for user accounts created
within Prisma Cloud. For the authentication of external identities,
Prisma Cloud supports LDAP and SAML 2.0. LDAP authentication supports the

Providers that have been successfully federated with the Prisma Cloud
Console are Okta, G Suite, Ping, Shibboleth and Azure Active Directory.
