Single Sign-On – Is It a Good Fit For Your Company?

You may have heard about single sign-on (SSO) and wondered if it would be a good fit for your business.  We have provided some information below to help explain SSO and its benefits. If you have questions are would like to implement SSO for your company, WheelHouse IT is here to help.

What Is Single Sign-On?

The authentication method of single sign-on enables individuals to create a single username and password that multiple accounts and websites can recognize. If you have been on a website that gives you the option to “Login with your Facebook Account,” this is an example of SSO. Companies that utilize the cloud to host business applications can leverage SSO to enable their employees to use one account and one password to access each application.

Is SSO Difficult to Implement?

It may sound complicated and time-consuming to transition employees from multiple accounts, usernames, and passwords to an SSO model. Fortunately, that is not the case. If you secure an SSO provider, they can ensure a smooth transition to SSO. The SSO provider will also ensure that two-factor authentication is in place for each user, further increasing security. Each user’s identity will undergo verification and the system will confirm a secure connection at every sign-on.

What Are the Benefits of SSO?

SSO provides businesses with many benefits, including:

  • Increased protection from attacks. Any attack on your network will only review the logins to SSO accounts – which would prove useless without access to the secondary authentication method.
  • Ease of access for employees. Employees will be able to easily access business applications without managing multiple logins. This will also encourage them to use all the applications made available by your business.
  • Increased control. Centralized management of accounts gives the company IT department quick and comprehensive control over company accounts.
  • Reduced IT costs. The business will need to field fewer help desk calls relating to log in or password confusion.

If you think SSO is a good fit for your business, contact us now. We would love to help you put together a plan for implementing SSO.
