Enterprise SSO solves password security challenges
Password policy can be complex to manage and a major challenge for organizations. Users often have so many passwords to remember that they end up writing them down and leaving them visible in their workspace - often jeopardizing the very security passwords were meant to deliver. Enterprise single sign on technology (SSO) can help solve this dilemma by giving users access to authorized applications after being properly authenticated into the network first. But often enterprise SSO technology is cost-prohibitive or too complex to implement and manage. Or enterprise SSO solutions can require inconvenient workflow changes, or costly changes to application code and modifications to directories. For an enterprise SSO solution that is non-intrusive and easy to manage and own, consider Imprivata OneSign®.
