What is Fortra IdP? 

Fortra Identity Provider (IdP) serves as a centralized solution that allows users to log in and register for connected Fortra offerings using existing credentials from popular external identity providers. By incorporating industry-standard protocols like OAuth 2.0 as well as required MFA, we ensure secure authentication while providing a familiar and convenient login experience for our users.

  • Convenient log-in experience 
  • Access to Fortra Support Portalour new support ticketing system that allows you to conveniently log and track support tickets 
  • Access to additional service offerings in Fortra Platform as they become available. Planned features include high-level dashboards and connections to other Fortra products.

My organization already uses our company SSO for Frontline VM. Can I use Fortra IdP? 

Yes! If your organization is using Microsoft or Google for SSO, you will be able to seamlessly log in to Frontline VM using your company credentials. Please reach out to your client advocate if your organization is interested in this integration. 

If your organization uses a provider other than Microsoft or Google, we request that you fill out this form so we can learn more about your use case and prioritize additional integrations. 

Fortra IdP can also be utilized on its own in lieu of your organization’s existing SSO. This provides a secure login experience and is required for accessing Fortra Support Portal and other connected offerings.
