FLEXIBLE AUTOMATION & STRONG AUTHENTICATION
Combine Secure Single Sign-On with Authentication Management Including Two-factor Authentication
Enterprise Single Sign-On Manager (E-SSOM) strikes the balance between ease of use and compliance with organizational policies
Today's complex business environments call for the perfect combination of accessibility and security. Juggling those two opposing concepts can be a daunting challenge for even the most seasoned IT professionals. Enterprise Single Sign-On Manager (E-SSOM), a key component of the Tools4ever Identity Governance & Administration (IGA) suite, provides the flexibility of customizable options for automation and authentication including: single sign-on, automated login, strong two-factor authentication (2FA), Virtual Desktop Automation (VDA) and WebSSO.
Seamlessly access multiple applications with the Automated Login (AL) Module
Gone are the days of end users having to repeatedly login to different applications as they work throughout the day. With the E-SSOM basic Automated Login Module, an end user only needs to log in once with their Active Directory username and password. Automated Login automatically authenticates them for every system and application they use with a single login.Read more show less
With Automated Login, you get:
Improved Convenience & Productivity
Since multiple logins are no longer required, your end users see an immediate improvement in productivity.
Reduction of Helpdesk Calls
A significant reduction in the number of password reset calls since end-users only need to remember one complex password.
Enhanced Network Security and Compliance
A secure authentication method that results in a safe and compliant network.
Easily Access Applications via Smartcard Using the Authentication Management (AM) Module
With just the swipe of a smartcard, you can enable end users to access required applications via the E-SSOM Authentication Management (AM) Module. There's no easier way to grant end-users secure, quick access to their applications. An additional layer of security can be added by incorporating a PIN code for two-factor or multi-factor authentication. This type of ready access is especially beneficial for healthcare organizations where end users may not have the luxury of time if they need to access medical information in an emergency situation.Read more show less
Take Security to the Next Level with Strong Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
In situations where an additional level of security is required, the Authentication Management Module can also provide two-factor authentication (2FA) replacing the regular Windows login credentials with a card and a PIN code. The Authentication Management module supports most card formats, from physical access cards to ID cards, ensuring that your users get direct access to the locations and the data they need at any time, from any location.
Setting up end users via the Authentication Management Module is simple. Within just a few seconds, you can provide access to all required applications.
With Windows 10, Microsoft introduces additional functionality such as Direct Access and Custom Pictures. E-SSOM Authentication Management provides the basic functionality for the Windows credential provider, and any additional functionality is not supported. The E-SSOM AM basic functionality is supported which includes future bug fixes and changes. In case Microsoft introduces additional functionality via updates, E-SSOM will not support these features. Please contact your Account Manager for any questions you might have about this topic.
Authentication Management provides:
Simplicity for End-Users
End-users can log in quickly using a swipe and/or a PIN code.
A card and a PIN code together guarantee strong two-factor authentication. It is based on something the user has (the smart card) and something he or she knows (the PIN).
Compliance with Government Regulations
Provide user-friendly, yet secure access to necessary information while meeting all of the requirements for HIPPA, SOX and other government regulations.
Roam the Halls Freely with the Virtual Desktop Automation (VDA) Module
Direct accessibility to a virtual desktop is especially important in situations where end users are routinely switching between workstations. Automating processes that replace manual, duplicative password entry is critical. That's where the Virtual Desktop Authentication (VDA) Module comes into play.
This module takes Authentication Management a step further allowing multiple employees to quickly log in and out of their applications via Fast User Switching on a workstation. It also gives users the ability to take their virtual desktop to another workstation on Citrix and/or Terminal Services via Follow Me. The user simply places their access card on the reader and, within 8 seconds, the user can re-connect to their already active desktop applications in another location.
Save Time by Carrying Over Open Sessions
For employees that work on several different desktops or makes rounds, for example, the Follow Me feature of the VDA Module offer an invaluable time-saver. It works in conjunction with virtualized desktops (Microsoft RDS, VMware View, and Citrix XenApp / XenDesktop) or Terminal Services and allows for easy movement throughout the workplace.
Why use Virtual Desktop Automation?
Efficiency and Flexibility for End-Users
End-users can work on the same session on every station within the organization without having to repeatedly log in with their user name and password. They are free to roam between workstations, re-connecting to required applications within mere seconds.
VDA was tested thoroughly by Citrix on several criteria and fully certified for compatibility with Citrix products including XenApp and XenDesktop. The Citrix Ready certification makes it easier for clients to identify the solutions that best match their specific needs.
Reach for the Cloud with the WebSSO Module
Historically, offering Single Sign-On access capabilities to cloud applications has been complicated. However, with the E-SSOM WebSSO Module from Tools4ever, end users can be granted access to all cloud applications from any device (PC, tablet, smartphone, etc.) using the same, single username and password they have been assigned in Active Directory.Read more show less
Transparent Authentication Even Outside of the Company Network
By simply downloading a browser plug-in, end users get direct access to cloud applications even when they are not connected to the company network. The plug-in communicates with the E-SSOM WebSSO module in the company network to pass login credentials which are then securely stored in the internal network rather than some unknown location in the cloud. The operation of the plug-in is fully transparent to end users so for them, it's simply another easy way to access the data they need, even from outside of their corporate network.
Directly Access Cloud Applications
Device Independent Access
End-users can log in via any device: PC, tablet, smartphone, etc. and connect to their applications, no matter where they are.
End-users have quick, direct access to cloud applications with a single login, saving time and hassle when working remotely.
Flexible, Anytime, Anywhere SSO
No matter when they need it or where they need it from, end-users get the convenience of a Single Sign-On experience.
