11/2020 Release: Introducing Two-Factor Authentication and SAML

When you are working on something confidential, keeping your report or presentation private becomes especially important. That’s why in November, we have added two new layers of security to the Piktochart editor. 

Here’s what’s new:

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) and SAML

You can now double up on security by protecting your account with two-factor authentication. It’s the simplest, most effective way to get secure access to your Piktochart account. If you don’t have one, simply sign up for free here and benefit from our online presentation builder, infographic software, and graph maker.

By setting up 2FA, you’re protecting your account against many security threats that target user passwords and accounts, such as phishing, brute-force attacks, credential exploitation, and more.

You will be able to implement it from the Account Settings level:

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) for PRO TEAM Accounts

If your organization uses the Piktochart for Teams plan, we’re happy to let you know that you will now be able to manage your multiple accounts using SAML.

SAML is a secure, XML-based communication mechanism for communicating identities across the internet. It primarily enables internet SSO (Single Sign-On), but it is also essential for these three reasons: 

  • Security (it decreases the risk of identity thefts or phishing attacks)
  • Access (it eliminates the need to type in passwords in multiple locations)
  • Administration (lowers the time and cost of maintaining duplicate credentials)

Thanks to SAML, the technical relationship between your organization, users who use Piktochart, and the app itself will now become even more secure. 

You will be able to implement it from the Team Account Settings level:
