Introduction to Security Benefits and Risks in Low-Code Platforms As digitalization becomes increasingly prevalent, low-code platforms are rapidly gaining adoption across industries. Employing visual techniques to programming, they enable the development and delivery of applications in a fraction of the time required by traditional coding. According to Forrester’s Now Tech: General-Purpose Low-Code Development Platforms, Q1 2021 , low-code platforms are “vital to digital business” and “proven in even the most mission-critical use cases”.

The more apps and credentials there are, the higher the risk of security threats, phishing attempts and ransomware attacks. SSO reduces these security risks and helps with regulatory compliance around authentication and data access. Reason
