Cloud Single Sign On (Cloud SSO)

Access to all Cloud Apps with a Single Identity

cyber

Securing and managing cloud identities is central to an enterprise’s IAM strategy. Without a centralized, iterative process for cloud identity management, organizations cannot build a sound cloud adoption strategy. Identity lifecycle management becomes inefficient, password resets lead to high help desk costs, and IT require multiple consoles to troubleshoot users. Plus, compliance risk increases as IT lack visibility into who is accessing what and when.

Cloud single sign on (SSO) offers easy access to cloud applications by letting users log in to all their cloud apps with a single identity—a single username and password set. By maintaining just one identity for all cloud apps, Cloud SSO solutions eliminate password fatigue and lower IT management overheads.

Cloud SSO solutions let users authenticate to their cloud apps just once, removing the need to re-authenticate to each cloud app separately.

Cloud Single Sign On offers numerous benefits for:

  • Users – A single credential set for all cloud apps
  • IT – Centralized cloud access management and fewer help desk tickets
  • Security officers – A single audit trail of cloud access events
