Single Sign-on Saves Productivity

  1. 1. Single Sign-on saves Productivity Password issues consume countless employee hours and clog IT departments with help requests, costing your organization a significant amount in lost productivity. Single sign-on password management solutions can help remedy this problem, reducing inconvenience to your employees and allowing them to spend their time more productively. Employees at most companies and other organizations likely have multiple passwords they must remember for work applications – a password to log in to their computer, another for email, another for health and other benefits management, more passwords for job specific applications and so on. Keeping track of all the various usernames and passwords they are responsible for can be difficult, and many employees end up having to regularly submit support requests when they forget or lose a log-in or password. Time is money, and when employees have to wait for IT to reset their log-in information or having to do it themselves, they’re wasting time that could be better spent elsewhere. Also, when your IT department is stuck processing multiple support requests for lost passwords or log-ins, they’re devoting time and resources to menial tasks when they could be working on more difficult and important tasks. Single sign-on solutions reduce the number of passwords employees must learn, allowing them to sign on to multiple applications with just one log-in and password. The end result of this is fewer problems with lost passwords and greater productivity. Single sign-on technology allows users to sign on to multiple applications by entering a single log-in and password, usually when they activate their computer. In addition to reducing the number of passwords and log-ins they must remember, employees also spend less time logging in and out of applications, a further productivity gain. To increase security for these password management solutions, companies and other organizations can combine them with strong authentication methods such as smart cards. An example of single sign-on solution combined with strong authentication would be a system that required a user to insert a smart card into a USB port while signing on. The smart card would

This provides an added measure of security, as anyone else who obtained the user’s log-in and password would not be able to gain access without the user’s smart card as well. With single sign-on password management and strong authentication procedures, companies can increase security while also increasing convenience for employees by keeping them from having to memorize too many passwords and log-ins.
