This unique capability is available as a feature of the EasyConnect single sign on product from SSO Easy, and is available for customers who need to address a Google Apps SSO use case.
Prior to this offering, Google Apps clients have struggled to attempt to effectively define, manage, and enforce Google Apps security policies related to remote user access. The market has required the capability for Google Apps customers to selectively allow remote access to Google Apps to some users, and/or groups, and/or roles in their organization, while somehow controlling and restricting remote access to other Google Apps users, groups, and/or roles. There has not been a clear, easy, quick solution to this requirement for Google Apps users. Until now.
Now, Google Apps clients who have a requirement or a desire to selectively grant remote access to Google Apps to some users, groups, and/or roles in their organization, while effectively restricting remote access from other Google Apps users, groups, and/or roles, have the ability to achieve this advanced function by using the EasyConnect product from SSO Easy.

Clients typically complete their production implementation of the solution in just a few hours. A Free Trial of the solution may be requested at the the SSO Easy website, listed below.

A spokesperson for SSO Easy commented today on the cricital impact that this solution provides to all Google Apps customers:
"We are thrilled to deliver this critical capability to the Google Apps customer base. Google Apps is the fastest growing set of personal productivity tools being embraced by the market. The ability for clients to effectively define, implement, and manage security policy for their Google Apps user base is essential.
