Enterprise Single Sign-on enables your organization to streamline both end-user management and enterprise-wide administration of single sign-on (SSO). It bases application and system user logins on your existing Active Directory identities, so there’s no infrastructure for you to manage.
Benefit from these key features with Enterprise Single Sign-on:
Active Directory-based single sign-on
Enables you to use the current identities, groups and policies built into your existing Active Directory deployment for basing single sign-on and access control for the entire enterprise, without requiring additional authentication methods or a metadirectory.
Security and access policy enforcement
Allows you to apply similar controls to client-based single sign-on for the entire enterprise-wide range of applications and systems to which a user may need access using established access policies and Active Directory rules.
Single point of strong authentication
Permits a single point of user login/authentication to any of your organization’s systems and applications, including standard username/password logins and the entire range of strong authentication options, such as biometrics, smart cards or token-based two-factor authentication.
IT and end-user efficiency
Increases your productivity and eliminates the need for your IT staff to manage user access and reset passwords across a wide range of applications because there’s no need to remember passwords for multiple systems and applications.
Achieve common compliance requirements for access control, strong authentication and secure delegation of access rights by implementing a consistent, strong, Active Directory-based infrastructure for access policy enforcement.
Enables you to generate audit reports from sign-on or LDAP data and also gives you the option of producing reports showing statistics.
Allows you to easily adapt applications to your unique environment, without requiring modification or custom connectors.
Optional fast user switching
Enables you to share a physical workstation using real-time context switching and individual authentication.
Optional password reset
Enables you to manage your own network password resets by answering secret questions, either through a Web interface or via a Windows login interface.
