SSO is a major component of Access Management sub domain within Identity and Access Management and IDM People is an expert service provider in this area whether these resources are typically web single-sign on or WSSO, Enterprise Single-Sign-On or Federated Single Sign-on.
WEB ACCESS MANAGEMENT – Web Access Management protects access to web accessible services available within the enterprise through centrally defined authentication and authorization policies through the use of policy servers and/or policy decision points (PDPs) and distributed or proxy-based policy agents and/or policy enforcement points (PEPs); provides session management and domain single sign on (SSO) for web applications.
ENTERPRISE SSO (ESSO) – Enterprise SSO (ESSO) minimizes the number of times a user must authenticate to disparate applications by maintaining a secured store of credentials for each application that are submitted transparently upon access an application.
CLOUD SSO – Cloud SSO allows users to sign on to all of the organization’s cloud based software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications with just one username and password that can be leveraged from your organization’s user account credential store.
FEDERATED SSO – With Federated SSO the user never provides credentials directly to the service provider – the user’s credentials are only stored within the organization. The users sign in once and the service provider trusts the identity provider to validate the credentials.
