SimpleNexus, a creator of branded mortgage apps for loan officers, has announced its integration with Microsoft Azure. Using Microsoft Azure, SimpleNexus implemented Single Sign On (SSO) using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), allowing users enhanced security features when logging into the application. SimpleNexus has already applied this feature for more than 800 Loan Originators by working with Academy Mortgage.
“We work tirelessly to provide our clients with secure solutions,” said Matt Hansen, SimpleNexus’s chief executive officer and founder. “Integrating with Microsoft Azure evidences our concern for security and offers increased assurance that our users’ personal information will be safeguarded.”
By using Azure’s SSO service, mortgage companies and their employees can use their company username and password to log into SimpleNexus. Users simply visit the customized mortgage company page on the SimpleNexus Web site, and they are logged in. If they need to sign in, the users are redirected to Azure’s “Federation” server to authenticate. The process seamlessly connects loan officers with the SimpleNexus application while affording added protection to personal information.
"Loan originators need convenient access to the multitude of tools they use each day. Academy mortgage recognizes the need for originators to be efficient,” said Kate Pettique, senior manager of marketing communications at Academy Mortgage Corporation. “We appreciate how quickly SimpleNexus was able to integrate with Academy's secure Single Sign On Solution."
“We are excited about SimpleNexus’s new offering. Streamlining accessibility to our mortgage apps is a key strategy in providing secure solutions for loan officers and real estate professionals,” said Jim Harrison, business, sales & support manager at SimpleNexus.
