Cloud Single Sign On (Cloud SSO)

Just one single identity for multiple cloud apps

Access to all Cloud Apps with a Single Identity


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.

What is Cloud SSO and how does it work?

cloud single sign on ssoWith Safenet Trusted Access, cloud SSO is applied intelligently. Each time a user access a cloud app, Safenet Trusted Access examines the login request, taking into account previous authentications in the same SSO session and the policy requirements specific to the user’s role, app sensitivity and contextual information. In this way, users may authenticate just once in order to access all their cloud apps, or step up authentication if required by the policy.

As enterprises adopt cloud applications, users are plagued with password fatigue--the never-ending burden of creating and maintaining separate identities and passwords for the multiple cloud and web apps they need to access on a daily basis. Adding to the frustration and downtime, when accessing certain resources, users are also required to validate their identities with strong multi-factor authentication, slowing down the access journey even further.

지난 수년동안 접근관리에 대해 들어보셨을 것입니다. "인증"과 "접근 관리"는 실제로 꽤나 비슷하기도 합니다. 그러나, 다른 점들도 있습니다. 인증이 사용자의 ID가 유효한지에 대해 살펴보는 것이라면, 접근관리는 사용자가 특정자원에 접근할 권리가 있는 것인지 살펴보고, 리소스에 대한 정책을 결정하여 운영하는 것이기 때문입니다.
