Workshare, the high stakes document company, announced an extension to its solution on Microsoft Azure. Workshare will now be using Azure Active Directory to offer single sign-on (SSO) to its clients.
Workshare has selected Azure to host all its online applications. In this recent move, Workshare now offers identity management. Future plans include delivering additional file comparison and document protection services for developers hosted and managed on Azure.

Ryan McGee, director, security product marketing at Microsoft Corp. added, “We are delighted that Workshare continues to extend its use of Microsoft Azure through SSO, and we are excited about their plans to develop file comparison and protection solutions on Azure.”
