Cambridge, MA, February 7, 2017 (Newswire) –​ Pagos announces the release of SpreadsheetWEB 5.1 that includes new access control features for better integration with corporate systems

Many companies rely on spreadsheets to assist in handling business processes; their simplicity and broad familiarity among business professionals can make them an integral part of overall business operations. For many such companies, SpreadsheetWEB has been an invaluable tool in transforming their spreadsheet-based business processes into web-based business applications.

SpreadsheetWEB 5.1 introduces single sign-on (SSO) support via identity-provider initiated (IDP) federated services integration. SSO allows companies to securely unify their user base by providing a singular authentication gateway into all of their web-based toolkits. This alleviates the burden of maintaining and synchronizing a multitude of disparate databases with user information and, instead, integrate your SpreadsheetWEB user base seamlessly with your other products.

This version also provides support for administrator-defined password policies, which is significant for the overall security of the system. Password requirements can be critical in ensuring that your user base does not needlessly endanger the security of your protected data by generating weak passwords that can be easily deduced or guessed.

“Managing access to spreadsheets and their data has been a major concern for many of our corporate clients that manage their identify-provider systems internally. While SpreadsheetWEB had some level of support for integrating with external authentication systems, it was not at the level found in more mainstream cloud-based services” said Ugur Kadakal, CEO of Pagos. “We are happy to announce the availability of single sign-on support, where our corporate clients can seamlessly integrate with their internal authentication systems, giving them better access control over spreadsheets deployed on the SpreadsheetWEB platform”
