OneLogin Desktop Pro | OneLogin Blog

Welcome to the post COVID-19 world of digital transformation – where workers are remote, devices are plentiful and businesses are living in the cloud. Although many organizations were on their way to a cloud operated, highly distributed workforce, the sudden unfolding of COVID-19 created the need for rapid changes. Users are remotely accessing corporate applications outside of the firewall, on a variety of devices – is your Identity and Access Management (IAM) strategy up for the challenge? Here are a few questions to get the wheels turning:

  • Are you struggling with rogue Macs?
  • Do you need to move off of Active Directory now that users are outside of the firewall or authenticate users against an on-premise directory?
  • Want to have greater visibility and control over the devices accessing corporate data?

If you were nodding your head yes as you read those questions, then the OneLogin Desktop Pro solution is the next tool to add to your IAM arsenal. This product enables organizations to simply and securely provide single sign-on (SSO) to applications accessed through the OneLogin portal. Desktop Pro can bind all of your corporate laptops to the OneLogin Cloud Directory, to ensure that users can always authenticate against a live directory – no matter where they are located. The best part – this solution works for both Macs and PCs. This solution will work for a variety of use cases, whether it’s a VP of Sales that needs to sign in from a trusted device at the airport, or a TechOps Engineer signing in from their corporate PC at home, OneLogin Desktop Pro can safely and securely provide access.

OneLogin Desktop Pro has additional key capabilities:

  • Strong authentication with the OneLogin desktop certificate: Desktop Pro issues a unique certificate to each laptop, which can be revoked by admins in the case of a lost device or the need to deprovision a user’s access immediately.

  • Mobile Device Management (MDM) deployment support: Securely deploy OneLogin Desktop Pro to groups of Macs and PCs with 3rd party MDM solutions like Airwatch, Jamf, and Meraki.

  • Simplified management for IT: Desktop Pro gives admins greater visibility, control and management abilities all in one place, making it easier to quickly onboard and offboard employees in real-time.

  • Reduce password fatigue: Users can login to their laptop with their OneLogin password, eliminating the separate laptop password and enabling true single sign-on access.

  • Self-service password reset: Users receive automated password expiration notices, enabling self-service password reset to eliminate numerous IT helpdesk tickets related to account lockout.
