External authentication (SSO)

The Identity Management Add-On is all about remembering fewer passwords. The add-on supports three authentication protocols: SAML 2.0, LDAP, and Kerberos (also known as Single Sign On)

Key benefits

  • It provides users with the convenience of having to remember only a single set of credentials to access multiple applications. It saves time and the so-called password-fatigue is prevented.

  • Users select stronger passwords, since the need for different passwords and change synchronization is avoided.

  • Dramatically reducing IT costs due to lower number of IT help desk calls about forgotten passwords.

  • Security is improved – users find it easier to remember their credentials and do not write them down.

  • Security on all levels of entry/exit/access to systems is guaranteed without the inconvenience of re-prompting users

  • Inactivity timeout and attempt thresholds are applied uniformly.

  • Significantly improving the effectiveness/timelines of disabling all network computer accounts for terminated users.

  • It improves an administrator’s ability to manage users and user configurations.
