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.
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
Smart Single Sign-On with Safenet Trusted Access
Safenet Trusted Access offers Smart Single Sign-On, which lets users sign in to all their cloud apps with a single identity, eliminating password fatigue, password resets and lost productivity.
How does Smart Single Sign on work?
With 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.
