MindTickle SAML integration

MindTickle supports continuous skills development. It allows you to quickly pinpoint sales skills gaps and assign simulated sales scenarios and virtual sales role-play to improve selling skills. This gives your sales reps the confidence they need to handle any sales situation successfully.

Arculix by SecureAuth, offers a simple method for adding MFA to MindTickle via its SAML solution.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an extra layer of security used when logging into websites or apps. Individuals are authenticated through more than one required security and validation procedure that only they know or have access to.

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is a protocol for authenticating to web applications. SAML allows federated apps and organizations to communicate and trust one another’s users.
