What is Single Sign-On?

Single Sign-On (SSO) is a form of access control that links multiple independent software systems allowing users to login once and gain access to all systems and applications without being prompted to login again.

Cloud OnPremise WhitepaperHow does it work?

Single Sign-On is generally achieved by using the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and storing authentication tokens in LDAP directories and databases. Integration with software systems and third-party applications allows for seamless, secure one-login access. Single Sign-On can be implemented via a cloud, on-premise or hybrid solution.

What are the benefits for my organization?

    • Reduces IT costs – fewer inquiries about passwords and access control
    • Saves time – less time spent logging into different systems and applications
    • Reduces password fatigue – fewer login credentials to be created

 


Cloud Federated Identity

connection dotsCloud Federated Identity refers to the ability to seamlessly link multiple disparate databases and identity data across multiple systems in a hosted environment. A common use case would be for Single Sign-On into software systems and third-party applications. With the cloud, it is no longer necessary to purchase bulky, expensive hardware or servers to take up space in the office nor is it necessary to hire and train staff to manage and maintain that hardware.

How does it work?

With Cloud Federated Identity, identity data and access control is securely stored and managed in the cloud. Multi-factor authentication and single sign-on seamless work together in the cloud to authenticate users and even allow for self-service user management and control.

What are the benefits for my organization?

  • Increased Security and Control
  • Reduced IT Costs
  • Eliminate Deployment Barriers
  • Meet Audit and Compliance Initiatives
