Single Sign On (SSO) Managed Services


Managing user passwords involves unnecessary cost, aggravation, and lost productivity for most organizations. Yet many IT departments have given up hope of achieving single sign on due its complexity and perceived cost.

SSO doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming, especially if your network includes a Windows domain along with applications running on IBM i (AS/400), AIX/ Unix, or Linux systems.

Single Sign On Managed Services eliminates up to 80 percent of an organization's password management costs within one day—using technology they already own—with positive ROI typically achieved in 4–12 months. This is sensible single sign on at its best.

Immediate Results, Faster ROI


Guided by an SSO expert, your technical staff can by pass the upfront learning curve for SSO and immediately:

  • Reduce password-related distractions across the enterprise
  • Relieve your help desk from the majority of its current password burden
  • Eliminate the SSO learning curve for IT 
  • Ensure ongoing SSO success with responsive, expert support
  • Achieve positive ROI within 4–12 months

Eliminate Password Problems


For most organizations, the majority of password problems occur when users attempt to log on to services from their PCs. The Single Sign On Managed Service quickly and efficiently eliminates multiple passwords between Windows and your IBM i, AIX, Unix, and Linux systems. Depending on your IT environment and applications, this cost-effective service can eliminate up to 80 percent or more of your password management costs.

SSO Without the Learning Curve


Avoid the long and complex SSO learning curve. Our experts teach your security officer the SSO concepts necessary for your environment, guide them through each of the configuration steps to implement all of your current users, and train them to implement new users.

Users and help desk staff will experience the difference right away

Immediate, Tangible Results


Unlike most IT projects, the positive impact of SSO is immediately evident across the enterprise. End users no longer have to log in to applications they use every day, the number of help desk calls drops, and password-related distractions decline. The best part is that most organizations achieve positive ROI within the first 12 months, and the savings continue year after year.

No New Software Required


If your IT network includes a Windows domain, you’re already using and managing the software you need to implement SSO for many of your systems and applications. Most IT professionals just need experienced guidance on how to configure the complex software on non-Windows systems in their specific environment.

Risk-Free Implementation


Our approach to SSO is non-disruptive, and you administrator remains in control of your systems at all times. Once we configure your non-Windows systems, you can immediately enable all your users, a few users, or a single user to test the results. You can also disable users from using SSO at any time. You maintain full control.
