What is Single Sign-On?
Single sign-on (SSO) is a method of authentication that allows users to access multiple applications or systems with a single set of credentials. This means that instead of having to remember and enter a separate username and password for each application or system, users only need to enter their credentials once to gain access to all of their authorized resources. SSO can improve security by reducing the number of passwords that users need to manage, and can also improve user convenience by making it easier for users to access the applications and systems they need. SSO typically involves the use of a central authentication server that verifies the user's credentials and grants them access to the appropriate resources.
By reducing the number of passwords that users need to manage, SSO can help to prevent password-related security breaches.
Enhanced user experience
SSO makes it easier for users to access the applications and systems they need, which can improve productivity and user satisfaction.
Better risk management
SSO can help organizations to better manage their risk by reducing the number of potential access points for attackers.
With SSO, users only need to enter their credentials once to access all of their authorized resources, which can save time and improve productivity.
SSO allows organizations to easily add new applications and systems to their environment without requiring users to remember additional passwords.
SINGLE SIGN-ON FEATURES
Support for Federation Protocols
Securify supports SAML 2.0 and OpenID Connect protocols which are natively supported in most apps. This means thousands of apps can easily be integrated with Securify.
Securify could delegate authentication to a third-party directory such as LDAP. As a result, users can login with their existing directory passwords to Securify SSO.
You could even totally eliminate passwords with Passwordless Authentication by enabling Biometrics factor for the MFA. With Securify SSO, Passwordless Password Manager is not an oxymoron anymore.
Securify supports OAuth2.0 protocol. By this way, API based access control is possible.
Password Vaulting and Form-Based Authentication
For web apps that does not support Federation Protocols, Securify provides a Password Manager extension which stores all site passwords securely and fills in credentials automatically. Your users only need to memorize at most one SSO password.
In some apps like Twitter, for corporate usage, the credentials should be shared by more than one user which has security implications. Securify can solve this problem by managing user credentials centrally and sharing them among authorized users. So, all these users can have seamless access without ever needing to know the credentials.
