Okta Identity Integration for SSO
GoSignMeUp has now integrated with Okta for identity management and federated identity-based authentication and authorization. With Okta Identity integration you can take advantage of ‘single sign-on’ (SSO). SSO allows your users to sign in to GoSignMeUp and other different organizations or institutions using just one ‘identity’. Okta integration allows for cross-domain single sign-on and removes the need for content providers to maintain user names and passwords. Okta Identity provides an identity and access management platform enabling the right people access to the right things seamlessly and securely. A user authenticates with his or her organizational credentials, and the organization (or identity provider) passes the minimal identity information necessary to the service provider to enable an authorization decision. Okta also provides extended privacy functionality allowing a user and their home site to control the attributes released to each application. GoSignMeUp now benefits from these features through Okta Identity integration. GoSignMeUp online class registration and management software saves training organizations time and money – and makes the user experience easier and more secure using Okta integration.

Changes To Outgoing Email
Responding to emerging internet security standards in regards to outgoing email, GoSignMeUp has made Changes To Outgoing Email. Internet security standards mandate that the “From:” address be the same domain that the email originates from. If the domains do not match, most recipient email servers will reject the email as spam.
To ensure mail delivery the “From:” address for emails will be “email@example.com” to match the sending domain of the mail server. There will be an additional “Reply to:” field with the typical email address of the email author. Functionality will remain the same for email recipients; Clicking “Reply” on an email client will result in the correct sender address in the response.
Clients also have the option to use their own mail server, to maintain domain-name continuity.
These mandatory changes will result in more reliable email delivery. Please let us know if you have any questions or issues by e-mailing us at “firstname.lastname@example.org.”
For more tips on how to avoid your outgoing email being labeled spam, check out this article.

Increased Security Standards
GoSignMeUp Registration Software is committed to keeping your data safe and secure and is implementing Increased Security Standards! New Increased Security Standards require that user passwords not be visible – even to admins. This new change will help keep your passwords protected, even if a hacker breaches an administrator account. Administrators can still edit a password and make it something generic temporarily, then the user can log in and change their password on their own. Users can still reset their passwords on their own from the public side as well. Limiting password view is just one of the many steps GoSignMeUp is implementing to meet upgraded security standards.
For more information about the increased security and running updates, be sure to contact GoSignMeUp at 1-888-286-4826 or submit a help ticket for support.
