OneLogin's Secure Answer To Single Sign-on Solutions

In today's world, a typical office worker must login to a large array of applications during the course of the day. This means that they could have to remember a large array of usernames and passwords, which in turn could lead to downtime and support costs when they inevitably forget one or more of their credentials. They are also slowed down by constantly entering this information over and over. But it does not have to be this way if your organization uses OneLogin's Secure Single Sign-on solution (SSO).


With OneLogin's SSO, users only have to enter one set of login credentials, whether they are accessing applications behind the corporate firewall or in the cloud. Nor does it matter what type of device they are using. The solution will work with desktop computers, tablets and smartphones. The end result of this is that workers gain productivity without sacrificing security.


How does OneLogin keep applications secure? It does this through policy driven application of password secucrity, and by using multifactor authentication that is typical of single sign on. Organizations can implement an assortment of policies, such as requiring that passwords have a minimum length and meet a certain degree of complexity. Organizations can further restrict password reuse, and they can determine as well session limits and the amount of time before users must reset their passwords.


Mike Lynch, who is the IT director of Berwin, Leighton, Paisner, says that OneLogin's SSO solution has greatly helped their organization provision new applications to their users, regardless of where these users are situated or what time zone they are in. He says that, because of OneLogin, their organization has been able to simplify the process of delivering quick access to an increasingly wide range of applications to their users, and that they know that they will be able to do likewise in the future.


OneLogin Desktop provides IT managers with a new kind of credential management system, in which they can make use of the profiles of computers maintained within the OneLogin Cloud Directory. Users can then log into these profiles by using their OneLogin Cloud Directory credentials.

Afterward, they will be able to access any application available in the OneLogin SSO portal. What this in essence means is that once a user has logged into their computer at the beginning of the day, they are now logged into any enterprise application they may have to use during the course of the day. This both saves time and increases security.


With OneLogin, a single log in effectively establishes multiple authentications to the same types of applications. For example, if your organization uses a handful of WordPress applications and another handful of Google Apps, one log in authentication will provide authorization to all of them. If your organization has multiple production or staging environments, using OneLogin can increase worker productivity considerably.

Another feature OneLogin provides is the ability for users to log into it through their social media credentials. This means they can log into all your organization's applications through their Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Google+ sessions.

By doing this, your organization does not need manage user credentials at all. This can be very useful as well for applications in which your customers and partners access. What's more, it is very easy to implement this functionality within your applications.
