Most people think of single sign-on as something large enterprises need for security. And it certainly has been so in the past, but with offerings like OneLogin, single sign-on is accessible to anyone. I recently heard someone at a small software start-up say:
“we don’t have a large enough team to make a single sign-on program worthwhile”
That has been the conventional thinking in the past. But the cloud changes everything. People work remotely, teams are more autonomous and it’s easy and risk-free to sign up for new apps that help you get your work done. Our customers often use in the range of 15-25 different apps and software development shops even more.
For the smaller business the incentive for using single sign-on is not the size of the organization, but the complexity of their software landscape. At the last count, we used 24 different apps and we know already that we’ll be adding 3 or 4 more soon. The ability for us to quickly access applications saves us valuable time.
