Eliminate password management problems with Single Sign-on
Passwords are a huge headache for employees and IT Departments. With multiple applications requiring unique passwords, users often end up writing passwords on sticky notes which get left on the side of monitors or hidden beneath keyboards - essentially negating the security the passwords are meant to provide. Single Sign on can take the problems out of password management. However, some available password management solutions are not adequate to the task - they require expensive recoding of existing applications or modifications to directories, or create inconvenient changes to user workflow. To solve this dilemma, more organizations today are turning to authentication and access management solutions from Imprivata that more effectively address password management challenges.
