About Single Sign-On (SSO) Authentication
How many times have you logged onto an application on a website that you’ve been using for a while, but simply froze when asked to provide your credentials again? SSO authentication offers a means of securely accessing a system or related applications via one set of credentials, usually a single username/password combination. Let TSC1099 customize single sign-on solutions to your organization’s unique wants and needs.
WHAT IS SSO?
A single sign-on authentication system allows users to sign into multiple applications and platforms at once. With a single sign-on system in place, employees won’t need to log into each application individually. Single sign-on authentication utilizes a centralized service that can be accessed by all apps, allowing for encrypted tokens to be exchanged securely between the server and the apps. Federated SSO is an advanced variation on this technology that makes it possible for users to gain access to resources with one password, whether or not all those assets are owned by the same organization. SSO provides an enterprise with the means to streamline the user experience for employees and maintain security at the same time.
