For system administration and information security, various (counter) measures are taken to keep the network safe, such as using complex passwords, setting a maximum validity period for passwords and instructing users not to write down their passwords. But these measures produce increasing frustration among users and a deluge of password reset calls.
These issues gave rise to the development of Enterprise Single Sign On (SSO) solutions. Users only have to log in to the SSO solution once, after which it will automatically handle the subsequent login procedures. The SSO solution will automatically log in users on various different applications based on the matching credentials.
