Did you know the Quantivate platform has Single Sign-On (SSO) Capabilities?

Today’s business environments rely heavily on a number of different technologies and applications. While this creates greater efficiencies, it also increases the number of passwords users must remember. Security best practices require those passwords be unique, strong and frequently changed. It’s no wonder users write them down, stick them to the monitor or just plain forget them.

Quantivate Single Sign-On (SSO) capabilities allow the Quantivate platform to trust the passwords and credentials passed from a user’s own network authentication and automatically perform user login. As a result, users do not have to enter a different username and password when logging into the Quantivate application.

Quantivate SSO provides end-users with convenience and uncompromising security through true SSO capabilities from network login through to application access.

 

Why use Single Sign-On?

  • Lowers the cost for password administration – if users forget their password, they can easily reset it using corporate processes.
  • Increases productivity – single sign-on significantly reduces the password-related helpdesk calls, and thus reducing IT workload.
  • Simplifies user experience – users log in at one single access point and enjoy a seamless experience across multiple domains and applications, removing the need for users to remember and manage multiple passwords.
  • Increases security – reduces the possibility of passwords being written down and left near computer access points. Single Sign-On can also configure automatic log out policies for users to prevent unauthorized access.
