It’s critical that your SSO solution meets the basic requirements to support employees and IT needs. That means a secure solution and one with high usability. But remember that SSO is only part of your identity and access management solution. Digital transformation today relies on an Identity and Access Management (IAM) platform that includes SSO as well as other tools like MFA and directory integration.
Use the checklist below to make sure that your SSO system offers the protection your company needs.
Does the SSO solution support all your user communities?
If your customers need access, does the SSO system support commonly-used consumer authentication methods?
Does the SSO solution allow true single sign-on versus password vaulting?
Does the SSO solution work with your cloud and on-prem apps?
Does the SSO solution support the most common, widely-used protocols that enable a trusted relationship?
Does the vendor meet the common, highest security standards and implement adequate internal processes?
Does the SSO service demonstrate consistent and high availability and the ability to recover quickly from disasters?
Is the SSO user interface simple enough that employees will embrace it?
Does the SSO solution provide thorough support for mobile users?
Does the SSO system support and enforce password requirements in a usable and effective manner?
Does the SSO solution integrate with your network access points?
Does the SSO solution allow you to use the existing, corporate identity providers you prefer?
Does the SSO solution provide additional security?
Does the SSO solution provide APIs and support so you can enable single sign-on for your custom applications and third-party systems?
Does the SSO solution provide reports that enable you to meet compliance requirements and enhance your security based on threat data?
Although any SSO solution should meet basic requirements, organizations making a successful digital transformation usually choose solutions that meet advanced requirements. An advanced SSO solution ensures, from the start, that you aren’t behind the curve.
Does the SSO solution use behavioral analytics to intelligently adapt and respond?
Can the SSO solution manage authorization through its integration with your identity provider(s)?
Can you integrate the SSO solution with your custom apps and in your organization without having to replace or significantly modify existing solutions?
