OneLogin Empowers Susan G Komen with a Single Sign-On Solution

February 2nd, 2016   /     /   company news

The Susan G. Komen Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to combating breast cancer at every front. Since 1982, Komen has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer – transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.

Komen employees use a variety of cloud applications in pursuit of their mission. To make the use of these apps more manageable, the organization empowers its employees with a OneLogin identity and access management (IAM) solution. “We determined that OneLogin was the most modern of the SSO solutions we assessed. It had all the features we were looking for and supported all the applications we use,” said Brim Basom, IT solutions adviser at Susan G. Komen Foundation.

With only one password to remember, employees are able to quickly access the apps they need. Less time typing in passwords means more time for employees to be productive, and add value to the organization, while saving IT time as well.

“When you’re accessing apps through OneLogin, you never have to do anything with your password. It’s a huge time saver. ROI is also substantial when you consider reduction in integration costs.” - Brim Basom, IT Solutions Advisor, Susan G. Komen

OneLogin’s prominent security functions also make it a great fit for Komen. Several of the organization’s cloud apps contain confidential information from donors, including contact information like email addresses. All of this data is kept safe through OneLogin’s encryption system.

“We estimate that this solution will save us $35,000 annually by eliminating support calls related to password problems and resets. In addition, we expect productivity savings of $82,000 per year by making it easier for people to access the applications they need,” said Basom. “The solution also improves our security and administrative processes. It benefits our entire organization and also positions us for future growth.”
