Single Sign-On (SSO)
When using Single Sign-On (SSO) in your business, you make the process of signing in to your apps much simpler and more secure for your employees.
We know that companies want to make the process of signing in to various apps more convenient and secure for their employees. That is why we’ve given your team the ability to sign in to CloudTalks’ apps with their SSO credentials.
Make it simple for your employees
As more and more companies move their business operations into the cloud and utilize tens or hundreds of apps every day, their employees need to be able to seamlessly access multiple applications from anywhere and at any time. The idea behind SSO is simple: rather than having every one of your team members log in to every one of your systems using different credentials, SSO gives team members one account to use across all systems.
Simplify work for your IT admins
Deprovisioning agents from multiple tools are complicated, especially for larger companies. IT admins, in particular, appreciate having a single interface where they can easily block access to all systems for employees who part ways with the company. SSO greatly simplifies the entire deprovisioning process and eliminates tedious busywork for IT admins.
Decrease security risk
A common misconception about using an SSO solution is that there is a single master password and if it is stolen, all related accounts will be threatened. The truth is when users utilize SSO, they actually create stronger (harder to guess) passwords without the need to write them down anywhere. For an extra security layer, an SSO strategy can be combined with multi-factor authentication (MFA).
