Simplify your access to on-premises and cloud applications while increasing security. Single Sign-On (SSO) allows you to log in once and use one set of credentials. SSO is part of a comprehensive identity and access management system. With an integrated single sign-on solution you will be able to:
Single sign-on solutions are available for any size business and add a layer of security and at the same time provides users with ease of access to applications. Users are no longer able to safely manage separate passwords in multiple systems without utilizing compromised passwords.
Our SSO solutions are for every size organization and can provide multiple types of authentications including:
As part of our managed Identity as-a-service we can handle the recommendations, implementation, ongoing management and maintenance of Identity and Access Management solutions.
Choosing a single sign-on solution starts with an Identity centered approach. Finding the balance between security and ease of use will help your users be safe and productive. Identity Management will help you onboard new users faster, ensure that they have access to only what they are required to, and provide helpful resources to request access to new things.
Your Identity Management System should have the following components:
Most single sign-on solutions include a launch pad application to make finding applications easier to access. This also has benefits including analytics for application usage, roles based access controls for accessing applications. Some solutions include a reverse proxy (Access Management) that allows not only single sign-on to applications but also provides secure remote access.
One argument against single sign-on is that it reduces the number of passwords a user has down to one, and if that password is compromised many applications can become vulnerable at the same time to an attacker. However the upside is that if the user only has to remember one password and they are required to utilize a strong password it actually enhances the security. Combine that with multi-factor authentication and this will help you achieve compliance. Also if applications are easily accessible (i.e. no longer have to log into them) you can encourage your users to utilize things like secure file transfer or secure email programs because the access is now “just there”.
