THREAD Launches No-Code, Fully Configurable Single Sign-On For Clinical Research Platform

Provides Research Sites and Study Teams with Enhanced, Unified Log-in Experience

CARY, N.C., MAY 14, 2024 – Thread, a leading decentralized research, eCOA and consulting services provider, today announced the launch of a fully configurable, no-code single sign-on (SSO) for the company’s clinical research platform. The new feature enhances and unifies the experience of researchers, study teams and participants utilizing Thread’s platform to collect, share and analyze clinical data.

Thread’s new solution removes the barriers of current industry SSO options, which typically require code libraries, application programming interfaces, custom development work and multiple validations. In addition to providing research stakeholders with a seamless login experience across multiple applications, Thread’s new feature:

  • Alleviates burden – all research sites use a single login from their own identity provider, eliminating the need for new credentials
  • Enhances flexibility – integrates and offers multiple identity providers to organizations’ needs
  • Improves efficiency - easily manages SSO access for study and sponsor users
  • Simplifies registration - no longer requires a separate password, streamlining the login and onboarding process
  • Streamlines password management – centralizes passwords using each organizations’ already selected SSO provider(s)
  • Enhances security – provides a comprehensive user access and audit log

“In listening to and working with our customers, we developed a modern SSO solution that enables research sites, study teams and platform users to enjoy a faster, easier and more unified experience,” said John Reites, co-founder and CEO, Thread. “We transformed what used to be a technology barrier that can take months with limited ability to scale into a no-code configurable solution that solves this challenge in a few clicks using your already selected identity provider.”

Leveraging many of the top Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML 2.0) identity provider applications, Thread’s SSO feature allows platform and study administrators to select, enable/disable, and add/remove identity providers or groups from their instance of Thread’s platform.
