OneLogin Desktop: How True Single Sign-on Enhances Security

September 12th, 2016   |     |  product and technology, smarter identity

It’s no secret that cloud adoption is altering the way organizations conduct business. Cloud applications are bringing new levels of business agility and operational efficiency to organizations. But pursuing speed at the expense of security is a recipe for disaster. Ask yourself: Is your company compromising its security posture to adapt to the new requirements of the cloud?

The Problem: Increased Vulnerability

Traditional company security boundaries are rapidly dissolving and remote access by employees, partners, contractors and customers are all on the rise. This can be great to for productivity, but IT still needs to expand security to deal with “access from anywhere” complexities and risks. You don’t want your organization’s security to be compromised, but you want to keep things simple for end users as well.

What’s the best way to keep company data secure while still keeping things quick and easy for users?

OneLogin Desktop

OneLogin Desktop combines operating system login and single sign-on (SSO) portal authentication into a single step. Just log into your machine and you’re done; It truly is single sign-on. This not only delivers hundreds of dollars of productivity benefits for every employee annually, but also increases security via an on-laptop certificate that delivers a second factor of authentication. This essentially enables you to implement multi-factor authentication (MFA) for all application access.
