Unmanaged Device Access Control on SaaS Security API
Use the next generation firewall to control unmanaged
device access by configuring SaaS Security API as a SAML proxy.
You can control unmanaged and employee-owned device access to
your sanctioned SaaS applications by configuring SaaS
Security API as your SAML proxy. Unmanaged device access control
uses SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language)
redirection by proxy to:
Redirect your SaaS app traffic through your next generation
Decrease vulnerability to data exfiltration and malware propagation.
When an employee needs to access a SaaS app on an unmanaged computer
or mobile device, the authorization request is sent through the
SaaS Security API SAML proxy and authenticated by your Identity
Provider. After authenticating, the user is redirected through the
firewall, allowing visibility into access and control of corporate
resources on your SaaS app.
There are several options available for an identity provider
(IdP) and service provider (SP). SaaS Security API tested the following
IdP and SP combinations. When the table doesn’t indicate support
for a configuration one way or another, the configuration might work,
but SaaS Security API has not yet tested that specific configuration.
If you have an interest in a specific configuration, contact your
SaaS Security Sales representative.
