Simplify password policy management with single sign on technology
Password policy management is a critical security issue for many organizations today. Protecting data from unauthorized access requires more controlled access to applications and networks - and establishing password policy is the first step in that process. But password policy management is often very challenging for IT and users alike. For users, password policy management can require the use of passwords for all applications and often, users need to frequently change passwords to comply with password policy. With so many passwords to remember, users frequently end up writing them down and leaving them in places where they can be seen by anyone passing - negating the security that a password policy is meant to provide.
To resolve these challenges, many organizations have turned to single sign-on (SSO) technology. Enterprise SSO solutions allow users to sign in once and access all the applications they are authorized to access. But too many SSO application solutions require expensive scripting, costly directory modifications or inconvenient changes to workflow.
