More easily implement password policy with single sign-on
Many organizations today have implemented password policy to secure applications, manage authentication, and control access to valuable corporate and customer data. But password policy can be notoriously difficult to manage and enforce. Users are given multiple passwords for a variety of applications, with some requirements to change passwords frequently to maintain password policy and effective security. Yet in their confusion, users often end up jotting passwords on sticky notes and leave them on the desk, making password policy ineffective and diminishing the security it was meant to provide.
Single sign-on (SSO) technology holds the promise of simplifying policy management and making users' lives easier, but many SSO solutions require costly recoding of existing applications, modifications to directories, or end-user workflow changes that are inconvenient.
For companies seeking to simplify password policy with single sign-on technology that is cost-efficient, easily implemented, and highly effective, Imprivata is the answer.
