Made with love for Google Workspace:)
Let us first understand why do we even need Google Cloud Identity in the first place, what are we missing in life without it, this will help us understand & decide whether to consider Google Cloud Identity or not.
If you plan to use Google enterprise services for your business, then understanding Google Cloud Identity is highly recommended, let me show you what is Google Cloud Identity and how it can help your business.
Google has two primary Identity offerings, let me help you understand the difference between them, so you can make an informed decision of which one to use based on your requirements.
If you are confused about difference among Google Cloud Identity, Google Workspace, and Google Cloud platform, then let me help you easily understand how they work together, and what makes them different.
Once you are convinced that Google Cloud Identity can help your business become more secure, your immediate next question would be “how would would it cost”, let me help you easily understand Google Cloud Identity pricing.
Google Cloud Identity is must in some cases, and optional in others, let me help you understand this with a few example use cases, so you can easily decide if you need Google Cloud Identity for your use case.
Now, as you understand that you would need Google Cloud Identity if you want to use Google enterprise products (like GCP), let me show you how to easily do Google Cloud Identity Setup on your own domain.
Google Cloud Identity setup would be different based on whether you use Google Workspace or not. You should take this lesson if you already use Google Workspace for messaging & collaboration.
Sometimes you might have use cases where some of your users need to authenticate via 3rd party IdP, and rest of your users authenticate via Google itself, let me show you how Partial SSO can help.
Now its time for execution, let us configure Google Cloud Identity as our Identity Provider (IdP), and Office 365 as our Service Provider (SP) for automated user provisioning and Single Sign On (SSO).
