The Authentic8 Silo Access Portal extends the feature set of Silo by further integrating Silo into the desktop by giving you an easy way to launch the Silo secure browser directly from a page which you can bookmark in your traditional browser. When configured properly, if a user navigates to the Silo Access Portal and executes an internet search, enters a URL, or presses a preconfigured Webapp shortcut icon, the search, URL, or the shortcut execution will be initiated in Silo. Additionally, enterprise users have the ability to brand the Silo Access Portal to match the enterprise look and feel.
When combined with Silo’s SAML integration, the Silo Access Portal is the initiation point for the SAML authentication step.
