Email is essential for efficient workflows


Most enterprise applications and databases integrate email into workflows to improve efficiency and response times for approvals. If your workflow breaks due to updates in the email platform, productivity could be slowed or even grind to a complete halt. Rimini Connect for Email was designed to let you manage your enterprise applications and databases independently of your email solution. So as your email platform changes, you won’t have to worry about compatibility issues.

Don’t let changing protocols slow you down


Using Microsoft Exchange Online? You’ll need to start using the new Open Authorization 2.0 (OAUTH2) protocol in 2023. The new solution, OAUTH 2.0 is currently the industry-standard protocol for authorization. However, the IETF OAUTH Working Group is already working on features needed in OAUTH 2.1 and beyond.  Thus, the question is when (not if) you’ll need to make the next jump to future standards.

What does the deprecation of Exchange Online Basic Authentication mean for you?

Future-proofing your investment

Rimini Street has developed a seamless solution that translates the Basic Authentication protocols into Open Authorization 2.0 (OAUTH2) protocols. With this solution, the same Basic Authentication configuration is still used by your existing ERP system. However, instead of sending the messages to the Exchange Online service directly, the messages are now sent to the Rimini Street Connect server to convert the message to OAUTH2 and relay it to the Exchange Online service. You can continue to use your existing Exchange Online services with no changes to enterprise applications and databases.

Security is critical for your business. The Rimini Street Connect server is client hosted which means it resides within your environment behind other layers of security including your firewall. This allows you to benefit from the additional protection that OAUTH2 offers when authenticating across the open internet.

Our clients achieve fast and durable results

MilliporeSigma is a services provider for the pharmaceutical industry providing state-of-the-art tools, services, and expertise to perform experiments and engineer new products. In summer of 2022, MilliporeSigma was informed that Microsoft was ending the availability of Basic Authentication for Exchange Online. This protocol is required for their ERP system to run email-based workflows. Rimini Connect for Email helped them keep their environment up and running smoothly by allowing the pharmaceutical testing company to:

  • Ensure that critical workflows remained uninterrupted even when faced with evolving industry standards for email authentication
  • Avoid upgrading their enterprise applications which would have required months of testing in multiple environments
  • Implement a complete and seamless solution within weeks instead of months
