Single Sign-On (SSO)

What is Single Sign-On (SSO)?

Single Sign-On (SSO) is a user authentication service that enables users to access multiple applications using one set of login credentials, such as a username and password. It combines several different application login screens into one, streamlining the login process for users. 

How is it used in Client Portals? 

Integrating SSO enables users to securely access multiple applications with one set of credentials, which leads to:

  • Centralized Authentication. SSO allows users to log in once to access multiple interconnected applications and services within the client portal.
  • Simplified Access. It reduces the need for multiple logins, making it easier for users to access various tools and platforms they need for their work.
  • Enhanced Security. Reducing the number of places where login credentials are stored improves overall security through SSO.
  • Improved Experience. In cloud-based applications, SSO reduces the frequency of login prompts, simplifying the user experience.

How does SSO enhance security in client portals?

SSO enhances security by reducing the number of places where login credentials are stored, thus minimizing the risk of credential compromise.

Does SSO simplify access to multiple applications?

Yes, SSO simplifies user access by allowing them to use a single set of credentials to log into multiple applications within the client portal.

What are the benefits of using SSO in client portals?

SSO reduces password fatigue, minimizes password request tickets, assists with regulatory compliance, and prevents shadow IT by enabling IT oversight and control over access.
