Thales, an information systems and communications security company, announced SafeSign Single Sign On, the latest addition to the SafeSign strong authentication and ID management product line. The products features strong authentication for organizations concerned with ever increasing security threats, rising help-desk costs and frustration with managing multiple and complex passwords.
SafeSign Single Sign On provides secure access to sensitive applications through strong authentication, requiring the user to identify himself only once at the start of a session. SafeSign Single Sign On enables authentication logon policies to be enforced in order to meet a diverse set of business requirements.
Different strengths and types of authentication can be presented to different user groups including static passwords, one-time password tokens, USB tokens, EMV/CAP cards and PKI smart cards.
SafeSign Single Sign On enables users to use one identity credential and no longer need to remember lots of different passwords – meaning fewer calls to reset passwords or accounts and in turn dramatically reducing help-desk costs related to password management.
Providing a simplified secure login process improves the protection around accessing applications, SafeSign Single Sign On helps ensure that security policies are applied more consistently.
