Single Sign-On (SSO) technology provides the ability to use a single identifier to access all authorized IT resources and systems. SSO solutions store all passwords and automatically process authentication requests at the demand of IT systems or web resources. Thus, you do not have to remember the login details and enter them manually.
To log in to the application, the user has to provide data for authentication. You can do it in one step, according to the chosen authorization method: get a one-time password, put your finger on the reader, connect a token or smart card, etc. The login and password will be entered by the SSO system automatically without user intervention.
Thus, when using Single Sign-On technology, the authentication procedure becomes easier and more accessible to users. Now users do not need to memorize plenty of characters to log in and enter them manually.
What is Online Data Room Single Sign-On?
If your provider specifies single sign-on technology among the characteristics of virtual data rooms, be sure that this platform is user-friendly. Instead of remembering dozens of passwords, now you and your colleagues just need to remember one. That also reduces the risk of locking the database by entering wrong login information. There are also more attractive benefits of SSO technology.
Surely you have found yourself in situations where you need to act quickly more than once. For example, there was a necessity to block someone’s access to data, show a document in a virtual room to a partner, check the activity of colleagues in the database immediately.
Single sign-on simplifies and improves work efficiency. All those operations that you must urgently and quickly perform become more accessible. After all, you do not waste time remembering your username and password. Sometimes, even on the Xth attempt, the system does not accept your password because it is wrong. What do you lose in this situation? Yes, such a priceless resource as time.
It is easier for the administrator to manage information and users in the virtual data room. You don’t need to remember a lot of usernames and passwords to check who has access to the data.
