True Single Sign-On™ for Systems, Applications & Networks

By Rajat Bhargava Posted February 23, 2017

Users want a single username and password to access everything. But as an IT pro, you know you must strike a balance between user access and security. Having a single user database with secure credentials to everything that those users need to access can be a powerful and efficient way for you to manage user access.

In a sense you are looking for a “True Single Sign-On” for systems, applications, and networks. Or, as we like to put it, “One Identity to Rule them All.”

What is True Single Sign-On?

SSO was originally a term used to describe tools that helped users access all of their apps with one sign-on. That’s great, but what about everything else? True Single Sign-On strives to give users access to all of their resources from systems to networks to apps all with one sign-on.

JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service® (DaaS) is leading the charge. DaaS solves the user’s problem by giving them one account to access every resource they need. Credentials from G Suite, Office 365, and Active Directory® can be managed by JumpCloud and federated via a variety of authentication protocols to third-party applications, services, and, of course, systems.

One Sign-On Across All IT Resources

In a complex world where centralized identity management is more critical than ever, the concept of a True Single Sign-On platform is refreshing. Historically IT admins have been able to only have web SSO, but the expansion to other resources in a heterogeneous environment is a critical for efficiency and security.
