Enterprise SSO is a password management software. It allows Information System users to authenticate only once for the duration of their session, regardless of the number of applications that require authentication.
Managing users for multiple applications has become time-consuming and also a financial handicap for companies as certain applications share the same authentication, while others have dedicated user bases.
By centralising usernames and passwords, Evidian Enterprise SSO allows administrators to spend less time on password management tasks. This saved time can instead be spent on development of systems and on improving system performance.

Employees can get on with their work without worrying about forgotten passwords, and without having to change them regularly according to ever more complex criteria: special characters, length, case, etc.

What happens if an employee wishes to be replaced by a colleague while he or she is away?
Previously with an unsecured solution, said employee revealed his or her login and password, with all the inherent risks in terms of security and audit.

Moreover, a record of accesses is kept, so you know which operations have been performed by which user.
