API Fortress introduces single-sign on

Specialist API test platform aims to smooth integration of workflows

API Fortress, the New York-based API testing platform, has announced a single sign-on (SSO) functionality for its enterprise customers.

This SSO will address a key challenge faced by customers of API testing solutions, most of which are composed of multiple discrete tools that have been "pasted together" in ad hoc efforts to deliver on the big promises of continuous testing, API Fortress said.

Customers have found it difficult or impossible to integrate these API testing solutions into efficient workflows. This, in turn, creates vulnerabilities and bottlenecks that that threaten data breaches. But these can be solved with real API testing automation, according to API Fortress, whose new SSO is Security Language Mark-Up Language (SAML) 2.0-based.

"In addition to improving user productivity, SAML 2.0-based SSO on API Fortress extends our interoperability with business systems and platforms, as well as simplifies compliance with companies' security policies," said Simone Pezzano, CTO at API Fortress.  "If an organization is on a journey to agile or hybrid agile development, micro services or CI/CD, it means increased regression testing on iterative products. SSO makes it easier to extend a standardized testing strategy across distributed  teams on those journeys."
