How many log-ins do you actively use? How many different passwords do you have? Sure there are options for password management, but most people don’t use them. Creating and remembering a password can be a pain. Passwords should be unique, complex and for security reasons you should change them regularly. According to a 2012 study conducted by Harris Interactive

“...38% of people think it sounds more appealing to tackle household chores – from folding the laundry to scrubbing toilets – than to try and come up with another new username or password.”

Gartner has reported that up to 50% of all help desk calls are for password resets and Forrester claims the time involved can cost $70 per reset.

That’s where Single Sign On (SSO) comes in. You’ve probably encountered somewhere online that allows you to log in through your gmail account or facebook. Convenient, right?

With our most recent update (October 4, 2017) we introduced Single Sign On integration with Okta for enterprise level accounts. Okta is a leading SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) SSO provider. Check it out below:

According to Okta its SSO service allows for a 50% reduction in login-related helpdesk calls, 50% faster login process and up to 5x faster IT integration. Single Sign On can save you time, money and improve your business workflows.
