Allowing SSO detection on Google Chrome, Edge and Firefox

Evidian Enterprise SSO

Demonstration of how to allow SSO detection on Google Chrome, Edge and Firefox

With Evidian Enterprise SSO, a user enters only one password or even none with a strong authentication method. After that, application passwords are automatically entered, on behalf of the user.

Evidian comes with a SSO studio which allows you to detect login prompts of new applications, either web based, desktop as well as legacy applications. The goal of the studio is to be easily configurable by anyone inside the organization.

This video shows how to use the SSO studio to enter passwords of Google Chrome, Edge and Firefox applications on behalf of the user.

Why over 5 million employees are using Evidian Enterprise SSO today?

Reinforce access to applications

A user enters only one password or even none with Evidian Authentication Manager and a strong authentication method. Evidian SSO can change transparently hardened passwords for each application. It allows the management of enterprise access policies (which user can access to which application) and centrally audit the user access.

Reduce up to 30% helpdesk calls

There are no more calls to the call desk to reset passwords because users no longer manage application passwords. Moreover, a Self-Service Password request (SSPR) function allows users who have forgotten their single password, or their access card, to unlock their accesses - even offline without the helpdesk.

Never reveal passwords

Users can share the same generic accounts securely, or delegate their access to each other while being away. Users don’t need to reveal their passwords and are audited by name. Thanks to a web portal, a user who is already on leave can remotely delegate all or part of his accounts, via a simple web page and fully comply with the security policy.

Satisfy regulatory constraints

By creating an obligatory passage point between a user and his applications, an organization can effectively control the accesses. Moreover, a log of these accesses and administration operations is kept centrally, which facilitates audit. Evidian SSO facilitates compliance with confidentiality, integrity and availability requirements.

Evidian SSO Single Sign-On

Evidian Enterprise SSO provides single sign-on to all users, businesses and organizations.

Free your users from remembering and typing passwords and drive your security policy by automating password management.

Examples of single sign-on solutions with Evidian Enterprise SSO and Authentication Manager

Typical use of SSO by over 5 million employees

Employees use a passwordless strong authentication method. After that, application passwords are automatically entered, on behalf of the employee, during application login prompts. This works either with web based, desktop as well as legacy applications without modifying them. Evidian gives an access to the applications to which the employee is entitled. And it transparently modifies and manages strong passwords for each application. An access log is centralized to facilitate audits, to know which employee uses which application and to meet regulatory constraints.

One PC - used by several users

Branch employees, sales staff in outlets, workers in manufacturing industry and others share a same PC in their Enterprise. They use a shared account with autologon to access the Windows session without password to save time. However, knowing who authenticated to the PC and at what time cannot be audited. Evidian with its multi-user desktop solves this problem with a fast user switching in a few seconds and a strong authentication method like a RFID badge to unlock the shared session.

One user – using multiple PCs successively

The day-to-day tasks of some employees may require them to move around within a site, such as doctors in a hospital, production managers at an industrial site, store vendors, and others. On each PC, they must log in to access their session and log out. As it takes time, an alternative solution must be found. Evidian offers a simple solution with a roaming session avoiding multiple login.

One user – using multiple PCs at once

Some employees need multiple PCs and monitors in order to work. These may include trading room workers, control room operators in industry, in transport, in video surveillance and others. It is unrealistic to ask these employees a multiple login to all PCs. Evidian offers a solution with a single login to multiple computers at once.
