Nowadays, most companies implement Single Sign On (SSO) protocols to provide their line-of-business clients with a better user experience and high level of security.
The main role of Single Sign On is to enforce uniform enterprise authentication and authorization policies across the enterprise. SSO provides users with the convenience of having to remember only a single set of logins which makes it a lot easier for users to handle their credentials.
Therefore, in Wordbee Translator you can not only use the user authentication provided, but also Single Sign On.
What does Single Sign On actually mean?
For those who don’t have any technical background, the Single Sign On (SSO) functionality is especially designed to manage and centralize your login credentials for various applications within the same organization. The SSO process authenticates the user for all the applications they have been given rights to and eliminates further prompts when they switch applications during a particular session.
Benefits of using SSO
- High level of security
In addition to the user authentication provided by Wordbee Translator, you can also use Single Sign On, which authenticates your users with your existing enterprise sign-on pages. The authorizations are provided directly via the central SSO server, not the actual service that the user is trying to log in to, and therefore credentials cannot be cached by the service itself. The central authentication point – the SSO service – limits the possibility of phishing.
- Easier for customers
Remembering dozens of passwords on a daily basis can be very tiring. How many logins and passwords do you need to remember to use all the various applications your company maintains? With SSO, you only need to remember one set of logins, meaning far less password reset requests which in the end can compromise network and data security.
- Smoother accounts management
SSO makes it easy to manage accounts and gives clear visibility of what is available to whom. The management of user credentials happens outside of Wordbee. User name, role and other fields can automatically be updated from your systems whenever a user authenticates.
Setup and support
Setting up the SSO feature is easy for technical users, such as administrators. Wordbee supports the SAML-2 industry standard. This makes it very likely that your existing user management tool smoothly integrates with Wordbee Translator, like the following:
- Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS)
- Microsoft Azure Active Directory
- Ping Identity
- Many more commercial and open source solutions
