What's New: SAMLv2 Integrationโ€‹

In response to the need to secure many SaaS services commonly used in an organization, XFA Connect now extends its capabilities to seamlessly and transparently support the SAMLv2, or Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0, authentication protocol for both the requesting application and the identity provider without making any change to the specific authentication request or content.
