Google Workspace SAML Single Sign-on (SSO) solution by miniOrange provides secure access to Google Workspace for enterprises and full control over access to Google Workspace application. Single Sign-On (SSO) into your Google Workspace Account with one set of Google (Gsuite) login credentials. miniOrange prevents frauds with its dynamic risk engine in conjunction with enterprise-specific security policy. We support a combination of the Device Id, Location, and Time of access as multi-factor authentication that can detect and block fraud in real-time, without any interaction with the user. Now you can restrict the use of Google Workspace only within the intranet and block user access from outside network. Restrict access to your Google Workspace based on IP address, Device ID, Time, or Location parameters.
IP based access control in cloud computing, allows you to enforce an IP restriction policy that enables the IT admin to restrict user access to business data only through one or more specified IP addresses. This ensures that no business data is accessed in an unsecured, public, or unregistered IP address. Preventing data theft is a big concern. IP restriction for Google Workspace does exactly that.

miniOrange Adaptive Authentication aims to provide a better experience to reduce the authentication burden on users while enforcing strong authentication where it is needed the most. For example, when a user attempts to access an application via an unregistered device then they may be prompted to register it. If the user logs in from a geographical location other than their office, they may be asked to answer security questions. Learn More

miniOrange provides user authentication from external directories like ADFS, Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, OpenLDAP, Google, AWS Cognito etc. It also provides user authentication with other IDPs like Shibboleth, PING, Okta, OneLogin, KeyCloak and many more.
Can't find your IDP ? Contact us on email@example.com. We'll help you set it up in no time.
2.1: Setup AD as User Directory
Here's the list of the attributes and what it does when we enable it. You can enable/disable accordingly.
|Activate LDAP||All user authentications will be done with LDAP credentials if you Activate it|
|Sync users in miniOrange||Users will be created in miniOrange after authentication with LDAP|
|Backup Authentication||If LDAP credentials fail then user will be authenticated through miniOrange|
|Allow users to change password||This allows your users to change their password. It updates the new credentials in your LDAP server|
|Enable administrator login||On enabling this, your miniOrange Administrator login authenticates using your LDAP server|
|Show IdP to users||If you enable this option, this IdP will be visible to users|
|Send Configured Attributes||If you enable this option, then only the attributes configured below will be sent in attributes at the time of login|
Refer our guide to setup LDAPS on windows server.
2.2: Setup miniOrange as a User Store
2.2.1 Create User in miniOrange
2.2.2 Bulk Upload Users in miniOrange via Uploading CSV File.
2.2.3 Self User Registration
If you want some of your users to sign in to Google directly, you can move those users into an organizational unit (OU) or group. Then, manage SSO settings for the OU or group so that those users are authenticated by Google rather than using your third-party IdP. Follow the following steps:
Note: Get started is only available if you’ve already enabled your third-party SSO profile.
Note: If the SSO profile assignment for an OU or group differs from your domain-wide profile assignment, an
override warning appears when you select that OU or group. You can’t assign the SSO profile on a per-user
basis. The Users view let you check the setting for a specific user.
If you want to turn off the third-party authentication for all your users without changing the SSO profile assignment for OUs or groups, you can disable the third-party SSO profile:
5.1: Restricting access to Google Workspace with IP Blocking
You can use adaptive authentication with Google Workspace Single Sign-On (SSO) to improve the security and functionality of Single Sign-On. You can allow a IP Address in certain range for SSO or you can deny it based your requirements and you can also challenge the user to verify his authenticity. Adaptive authentication manages the user authentication bases on different factors such as Device ID, Location, Time of Access, IP Address and many more.You can configure Adaptive Authentication with IP Blocking in following way:
|Allow||Allow user to authenticate and use services if Adaptive authentication condition is true.|
|Challenge||Challenege users with one of the three methods mentioned below for verifying user authenticity.|
|Deny||Deny user authentications and access to services if Adaptive authentication condition is true.|
|User second Factor||The User needs to authenticate using the second factor he has opted or assigned for such as
|KBA (Knowledge-based authentication)||The System will ask user for 2 of 3 questions he has configured in his Self Service Console. Only after right answer to both questions user is allowed to proceed further.|
|OTP over Alternate Email||User will recieve a OTP on the alternate email he has configured threw Self Service Conolse. Once user provides the correct OTP he is allowed to proceed further.|
5.2: Adaptive Authentication with Limiting number of devices.
Using Adaptive Authentication you can also restrict the number of devices the end user can access the Services on. You can allow end users to access services on a fixed no. of devices. The end users wii be able to access services provided by us on this fixed no. of devices.You can cofigure Adaptive Authentication with Device Restriction in follwing way
5.3: Add Adaptive Authentication policy to Google Workspace.
The most practical way to strengthen authentication is to require a second factor after the username/password stage. Since a password is something that a user knows, ensuring that the user also has something or using biometrics thwarts attackers that steal or gain access to passwords.
Traditional two-factor authentication solutions use hardware tokens (or "fobs") that users carry on their keychains. These tokens generate one-time passwords for the second stage of the login process. However, hardware tokens can cost up to $40 each. It takes time and effort to distribute them, tracks who has which one, and replace them when they break. They're easy to lose, hard to use, and users consistently report high levels of frustration with token-based systems.
miniOrange authentication service has 15+ authentication methods.
You can choose from any of the above authentication methods to augment your password based authentication. miniOrange authentication service works with all phone types, from landlines to smart-phone platforms. In the simplest case, users just answer a phone call and press a button to authenticate. miniOrange authentication service works internationally and has customers authenticating from many countries around the world.
