We are LogonLabs, a team of software engineers located in Vancouver, Canada. We’re the same team that built the email security product, DeliverySlip, which we founded in 2007. In 2016, some of our customers asked if we could allow their users to log in to our product with their Google and Microsoft accounts. Later, some of our larger customers asked us to let their employees log in with enterprise identity providers such as Okta, OneLogin, and Siteminder (CA SSO). We found the request a bit daunting at first as our expertise was in email and data security, not authentication.
As we soon discovered, authentication workflows are a disorganized mess. Not only are there multiple protocols (OAuth, SAML 1.1, SAML 1.2), but every Identity Provider approaches them in a different way. We wanted to please our customers, but we needed to do it right to maintain our high-security requirements. It wasn’t an easy task, and it ended up consuming a few months of our (already stretched) engineering resources.
In 2019, we had the opportunity to sell the DeliverySlip product to our main competitor. Given the ordeal we had gone through to enable our product with enterprise-grade Single Sign-On, we decided to share what we’d learned about identity and authentication. We created a simple, yet secure authentication API, or SSO broker, and we named it LogonLabs.

We often get asked about our pricing, and why it is lower than our competitors. The answer is simple: we built LogonLabs to be an extremely efficient API that doesn’t require costly resources like database queries. We’ve built the API to work alongside your existing registration and login screens, so there’s no need to change how you manage your users. Because of its simplicity, it requires very little support.
We’ve made our entire offering ‘self serve’ where we do not need to hire expensive salespeople. We only rely on support engineers to answer your questions and get you going with your projects. In turn, we are happily able to pass our knowledge and the savings onto your organization.
