As cyber threats continue to grow - with 61% of data breaches involving authentication, it's more important than ever to power up your digital defence. At PinMeTo, we constantly strive to provide businesses with powerful tools that help not just secure but also streamline operations. One such tool is the Single Sign-On (SSO) designed to simplify authentication and strengthen your cybersecurity.
What is SSO?
SSO is a user-friendly authentication solution that allows individuals to log into a single platform and gain access to multiple services. PinMeTo's Single Sign-On (SSO) feature helps organisations simplify their login procedures, strengthen cybersecurity, and future-proof their business.
SSO vs. Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
Many businesses default to two-factor authentication (2FA) as their security method of choice. While it adds an extra layer of security, 2FA can become tedious and time-consuming when applied across multiple platforms and applications. In contrast, SSO combines ease of use with stronger security, delivering a seamless login experience.
SSO and SAML: The Power Duo
To enhance the capabilities of our SSO, we've integrated the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML). SAML is an open standard for securely exchanging authentication and authorisation data, making it a perfect addition to SSO systems. PinMeTo SSO is empowered with SAML allowing for more secure and efficient user authentication.
Why Shift to SSO
SSO powered with SAML's security features reduces attack vectors, boosting your defence against the rising tide of cyber threats that target authentication processes.
With SSO, users no longer have to navigate through multiple sign-in processes or remember numerous usernames and passwords. This can reduce login support tickets by up to 75%, freeing your IT team to focus on more pressing tasks.
Easy Governance & Compliance
Role-based access controls in SSO simplify IT governance, making GDPR/ISO compliance a straightforward process, even in remote environments.
SSO's secure remote work capabilities make business integrations during mergers or expansions easier. Regardless of your team's location, SSO ensures seamless collaboration and productivity.
