SAP Single Sign-on Technology

Single sign-on technology (SSO), meaning the one-time logon of a user at his or her workstation, means that a user can access all computers and services after a one-time authentication without having to log in again each time. The relevant security aspects are of particular importance here. The single sign-on must not be weaker than the authentication procedure itself. It is precisely this area that we monitor carefully.

  • No need to install additional client software with its own login procedure
  • Easier and faster achievement of efficiency targets in the course of the introduction of self-services

Advantages of single sign-on technology

  • Since only one authentication is required, users save a lot of time daily.
  • This time saving can not only increase productivity for a company, but also save a lot of money.
  • SSO is a security gain, as no password needs to be transmitted after domain login.
  • Instead of many, and often unsecure passwords, the employee only has to remember one password.  This password can be selected to be more complex and secure.
  • Phishing attempts become more difficult because users only have to enter their UserID and password in one place, rather than in numerous scattered places.
  • The security-related login can be easier matched to the correct parameters (URL, SSL server certificate, etc.) through a central location.
  • Employees like to exchange passwords for illness and absence. Users of a single sign-on system do not easily pass on their personal “master key”.
