SSO - what it is and how it benefits your organisation
In an ideal world of seamless ICT user experience (UX), users log in once and access everything. There is no visibility or thought to the architecture handling any of the additional authorisations needed when moving from one service or system to another. This is what’s known as SSO (single sign-on). In this first post of our Authentication Series, let's explore what it is and how it can benefit your organisation and its users.
Single sign-on (SSO) is a session and user authentication service that permits a user to use one set of login credentials -- for example, a name and password -- to access multiple applications. SSO can be used by enterprises, smaller organisations and individuals to ease the management of various usernames and passwords.
