Enterprise Single Sign on Solution

“Reduce costs, simplify access and audit access to applications with single sign-on”

The Situation and Challenge

With an increasing number of enterprise applications and access points, organizations face the challenge of providing convenient access while ensuring strong security. Enterprises need software to help ensure that the right users have access to the right information in a timely manner. Password management has become a significant burden to both organizations and employees, and leads to reduced user productivity, higher help desk costs, and security and compliance exposures.

Even more importantly, poor password selection and management by employees represents one of the biggest corporate security weaknesses today. Employees often write down their passwords in unsecured locations, use common words like “password” as their password and share their passwords with coworkers.
