Single Sign-On (SSO) Authentication

Grant employees fast, frictionless access.

Authenticate Without a Password

In certain sectors, such as healthcare, finance or education, job functions require employees to access multiple systems and spaces within the same business day. Often, their workstations are also exposed to public environments, creating additional risk. It can be an inefficient hassle to resubmit the same password over and over throughout the day.

A more convenient, secure and automated solution is single sign-on (SSO) authentication. Single sign-on allows employees to authenticate their identity at the beginning of a work period, granting secure access to the right software, files and locations throughout the business day.

Single sign-on paves the way for new levels of productivity. Users log in once via an RFID card or smartphone to authenticate themselves for digital or logical access. Those credentials then conveniently move with them throughout the rest of their workday.  

Convenient, Efficient Access for All

Welcome to a Passwordless World

The biggest benefit on the path to a passwordless world is that the layers of authentication designed to decrease risk also propel the user experience. As password use results in several security challenges, a single trusted identity — like an RFID access card, mobile app or wearable — can be the key that conveniently unlocks spaces and places for more secure and seamless business.
