Nulab Unveils Nulab Pass, a New Security Service

Nulab has launched its new security service called Nulab Pass, post enabling support for WebAuthn. This new service will add an extra layer of security to all Nulab’s accounts with single sign-on (SSO) via SAML Authentication. It can be used on all Nulab’s software – project management software Backlog, cloud-based diagramming software Cacoo, and chat app Typetalk. Any customer using a subscription to one of these apps can now subscribe to the new service too.

Nulab Pass will strengthen the level of security, reducing the risk of lost or weak passwords and phishing attempts. It is designed to leverage the use of Nulab’s software for a safer and faster experience. Thanks to SAML, users will authenticate through their company’s identity provider, leveraging Public Key Infrastructure. This procedure will actively protect them against hackers’ attacks and data breaches while facilitating the sharing of sensitive information.

With SSO, users will be able to quickly and safely sign in to Nulab’s software with just one ID and password. They won’t have to remember application-specific passwords anymore or spend time to go through identity verification each time for each app.

“For security reasons, companies always require their employees to use strong passwords for their applications. But secure passwords usually aren’t that easy to remember,” asserts Shinsuke Tabata, CMO, Nulab. “With Nulab Pass, our customers can easily and securely switch from one app to another with just one single set of credentials. It’s safer, faster, and it enables an improved user workflow”. “We are investing several resources on enhancing our users’ security,” adds Tabata. “After WebAuthn, SSO, and SAML, we are planning to introduce more features, including user provisioning and an organization audit log”.

Nulab has offices in New York, Amsterdam, Singapore, Tokyo, Kyoto, and its headquarter in Fukuoka. Nulab Pass is the latest of several releases and milestones achieved by the company in the past few months among Nulab raising $5 million in funding, Backlog surpassing 1.7 million active users and 10,000 paying customers, and both Cacoo and Backlog being named Leaders in their markets by G2. Its other milestones include Nulab enabling support for WebAuthn on all of its software, Backlog being selected as an Overall SaaS Award winner for the international 2019 APPEALIE Awards, Backlog adding a new Kanban board feature that empowers project leaders to have greater visual control over workflow and tasks, and Cacoo releasing a new database schema importer in addition to Microsoft and Zapier integrations.
