SSO - single sign on solution for banks and financial organizations

  1. 1. Biometric Secure Single Sign-On (SSO) Software for Banks and the Financial Services Industry Eliminate Passwords and Increase Security in your Bank The increasing number of enterprise security data security breaches combined with the pressure on the financial services industry to implement methods of password management, identity management, data and network security, and two factor authentication has never been stronger. The sharing or theft of user passwords still remains the number one reason that corporate data is compromised. We help to solve this problem by allowing the financial services industry the ability to implement a centralized password management repository for single sign-on and secure access to internal applications. What is Single Sign-On? A cost-effective, server-based back-end that offers enterprise-wide identity and password management as well as data protection that is easily deployed and managed by your IT department. With a single solution that supports strong authentication techniques, banks can protect corporate and personal data while ensuring industry mandated compliance with governmental regulations.© 2014
