Companies adopt more and more SaaS applications to lower their cost and increase agility.
Evidian Enterprise SSO as a service provides a seamless user experience by not requiring users to constantly re-enter passwords, one for each corporate and cloud application and/or environment. It generates strong passwords and connects your users to their applications automatically. These goals will be achieved without having to take on unnecessary infrastructure expenses or development burden, generating economy of scale.
By automating password management, Evidian E-SSO simplifies your users’ lives and lets you drive your security policy.
With E-SSO as a service, you benefit from a solution easy to deploy and ready to use, freeing your organization from administration tasks and infrastructure management.
Evidian Enterprise SSO as a service eliminates one of the primary threats of security: bypassing password procedures. Now, users no longer have to remember a multitude of credentials. They simply have to remember their main password. With Enterprise SSO you will limit password sharing between your employees as well as passwords written down in an unsecure way ... It also avoids multiple use of the same password for several applications.
Evidian E-SSO as a service enters and changes application passwords automatically, on-behalf of the user. The service supports the definition of separate password policies for each application and enforces the application password policy at every level.
It secures access to hybrid environments, both to legacy and web applications, hosted on-premise and on cloud, maintaining existing infrastructure unchanged. As a result, your users will become more productive and will naturally comply with your security policy.
Evidian E-SSO can transparently manage strong passwords for each application. Through a particular policy, you can require a re-authentication to allow Single Sign-On to be performed on sensitive applications.
By managing passwords' lifecycle, Evidian Enterprise SSO ensures that accounts' passwords correspond to your corporate security policies.
Evidian Enteprise SSO provides one unique authentication to login to authorized applications. Users are no longer required to type or memorize passwords across multiple applications, and significantly reduce time needed for daily tasks. Furthermore, by reducing password fatigue it will also reduce calls to the helpdesk up to 50%.
Every call to the helpdesk generates costs. Thanks to Evidian E-SSO, you can reduce these calls by up to 50% as employees no longer lose application passwords. Moreover, you avoid the costly procedures that occur when accounts are locked after password errors.
Evidian E-SSO automatically draws up a list of active application accounts that can be periodically reported. This allows you to optimize the associated application license costs. Next to the on-premises installation, Evidian E-SSO is now also available as a SaaS based service. The service is offered on a subscription basis without initial investments in licenses and infrastructure (no CAPEX). Furthermore the service is offered both as a shared service and as a dedicated service.
You can monitor your employees’ attempts to access applications. An audit trail of all accesses, who accessed what at which time, is maintained and can be made available on request. This will enable you to demonstrate that your access policy is observed and fulfills its objectives.
The main function of the product is to prevent users from entering a username and password for each application used. It also allows a user to delegate access to an application (define at enterprise level) to another user without having to disclose their password.
