Addressing Your Password Nightmares with an Enterprise Single Sign-On Platform: Live Webcast
By B Shashikumar on Oct 12, 2011
Who hasn’t experienced a forgotten password nightmare? In the information security business, we constantly hear about horror stories that resulted from forgotten passwords. Corporate users need access to many enterprise applications on a regular basis. For instance, an employee who uses six different applications might have six unique passwords. To eliminate the need to look up passwords each time they use one of their applications, some users tend to select easy-to-remember passwords. Unfortunately, these obvious passwords are easier for unauthorized users to figure out, enabling them to gain access to sensitive applications. If users forget their passwords, then they call IT helpdesk. In fact ,some studies estimate that more than 25% of help desk calls are related to password resets. Password-related help desk calls cost money and take IT personnel away from core tasks.
Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Suite Plus solves these challenges by letting users access any kind of application regardless of whether it is a mainframe app or a client server app or a web app or a SaaS app with a single password. Oracle ESSO Suite Plus can drastically slash the number of password-related calls received every year along with associated helpdesk costs. When it comes to evaluating ESSO solutions, it is important for organizations to think about how to manage identity profiles and permissions throughout the entire identity lifecycle, thereby ensuring regulatory compliance – with mandates like Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA, and simplified administration – how you can manage password policies from a single console. A comprehensive ESSO solution which integrates well with other Identity Management funcitonalities like user provisioning, directory services and access management can significantly strengthen an organization’s overall security.
