As the number of websites, applications and systems that users must access to do their work multiplies, password management solutions haven’t kept pace. The need for passwords is universal in a technology-dependent era, but the way password access is managed is, perhaps surprisingly, often an overlooked consideration. In fact, password related breaches are the leading cause of data loss – so it’s not to be taken lightly.
As more companies move towards cloud-based technologies and there is a trend to more geographically-dispersed workforces, the number of employees remotely accessing online information to do their work is dramatically increasing.
Have you evaluated how your users are signing on to your business systems – in terms of security and ease of use, both locally and if working remotely?
IT and end users agree – Single Sign-on is the best
A Single sign-on (SSO) password management solution, where users gain access to multiple networks by logging in to a single web portal, is a key component of ‘ID as a service’ (that IT providers like Correct Solutions can offer). Single Sign-on has several benefits for your business and for your end users or staff:
Ready to improve security and efficiency?
As employees access a growing number of online resources, they need to spend more time keeping track of usernames and passwords. This encourages the use of weak passwords, recycling the same password for multiple applications, or storing passwords insecurely. These practices can lead companies to be exposed to a significant amount of risk.
A centrally-managed password solution like SSO can reduce security risk and aid compliance, improve employee productivity and reduce IT support costs.
The expansion of Cloud has brought many benefits to organisations, but it’s crucial to consider how your staff are accessing your systems. To keep your business secure, it’s worthwhile looking at Single Sign-on, an important part of Correct Solutions’ Complete Identity & Access Management Solution. Contact us today to find out more.
