Every intranet user logs in with a single ID
Single sign-on (SSO) is an identification system that permits websites to use third-party trusted websites to verify users while login. With the Single Sign-On feature, every intranet user logs in with a single ID and password to gain access to a connected system or systems without using different user names or passwords seamlessly. Now you don’t have to remember another password to log into your Creative Social Intranet website.
In our SSO feature, an agent module on the application server retrieves the specific authentication credentials for an individual user from a dedicated SSO policy server, while authenticating the user against a user repository such as a lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) directory. Single Sign-On (SSO) enables users to use one username/password for all of their connected applications.
The Benefits for SSO to Employees
Convenience is a huge advantage of leveraging SSO for your organization. It simplifies the cumbersome process of remembering and entering multiple credentials. It also increases productivity in employees by relieving them of password fatigue and enabling convenient sharing of data across platforms.
Automating identity and access management liberates your organization from time-consuming and laborious administrative tasks. SSO empowers MSPs to scale their business by minimizing IT costs and streamlining menial tasks to focus on greater goals.
SSO speeds up access to your business apps by granting access to all necessary applications with one set of credentials per user. If you provide services to customers over multiple properties or have two corporate-owned sites, you can use SSO to create a seamless experience for your clients.
When end users only need to remember a single unique password, instead of different passwords for each app, the risk of password fatigue drops significantly, and with it the rate of time-consuming password resets. What’s more, since they only need to log on to one secure platform, once per day, you eliminate the chance of users repeating passwords across multiple insecure applications.
With inbuilt SSO in the company intranet, you need not buy expensive 3rd party SSO integrations. Moreover it saves capital invested on IT support employees kept for resetting passwords every next moment.
More employee participation
Since SSO provides a lower barrier to entry, so employees sign in easily and securely, increasing employee engagement and participation in company portal.
With secured SSO in the company intranet, machines are less probed to hackers, thus improving the overall security.
