Contentstack is Built.io's award-winning CMS that unifies, simplifies and accelerates content management. Built.io Contentstack empowers organizations to consolidate content management across channels via a single CMS and enables IT to enforce policies and establish best practices. Enterprises across all industries are adopting Contentstack, with marquee customers including Axiom, Cisco, JD Power, and the Miami Heat, among others.

To enhance its existing security features, Contentstack has implemented both single sign-on (SSO), which provides customers with enhanced controls over user authorization, as well as two-factor authentication, which adds a second layer of protection through the use of a one-time code delivered via SMS or the Authy mobile app.

With SSO, companies can leverage the credentials of their preferred identity provider rather than creating and managing a separate set of Contentstack usernames and passwords. The SSO integration in Contentstack is powered by the industry standard Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0 (SAML 2.0), which is compatible with popular identity providers and solutions, including those provided by its partners SAP (SAP Single Sign On), Microsoft (Azure and ADFS) and VMware (Workspace ONE). The bottom line for customers is enterprise-grade security, easier collaboration across business applications and improved compliance.

New Partner Program

The Contentstack partner program offers exclusive incentives, expert training and certification options, as well as enhanced support only available to Contentstack partners. Partners are also able to tap into Contentstack's marketing investment and benefit from participating in go-to-market activities, including joint webinars, content production, events and demand generation campaigns.

"When we discovered Contentstack, we were delighted by the flexibility it offers our team of designers and developers.
