With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Microsoft Teams has become the dominant collaboration platform, surpassing 115 million daily average users in October and generating $49 billion in annual revenue.

Avatier for Teams provides an integrated Single Sign-On (SSO) solution with universal MFA support for secure identity authentication and access governance for any application.

Avatier for Teams’ always-on access makes it easier to maintain workforce collaboration through real-time identity management for any protected application. Avatier for Teams eliminates the complexity of adding identity management software by leveraging the Teams platform to save deployment and administration overhead. Native Teams SSO software also gives IT managers consolidated identity management control to secure work-from-home users.
“We have been aggressively rolling out our Identity Anywhere platform to offer a common, easy-to-use identity management interface no matter how you access enterprise assets. Following our SSO releases for mobile devices and Chrome, Teams was the next logical platform since Microsoft is one of the leading providers in the collaboration market,” said Nelson Cicchitto, founder and CEO of Avatier. “Since Avatier is the first Identity-as-a-Container platform, it’s readily portable as well as hyper-scalable, providing a native, secure login solution that can run anywhere.”
“With the increase in hybrid models of work, Microsoft Teams has grown in importance as a hub for teamwork,” said Mike Ammerlaan, Director of Microsoft 365, Ecosystem Marketing at Microsoft Corp. “Since Avatier is natively integrated with Teams, Identity Management becomes a collaborative experience while deployment and administration of your identity management and SSO solution are simplified and controlled from within Teams.”
