During their daily work, your employees use many different applications, for each of which they usually have to be authenticated with their own access data. On the one hand, this is not very user-friendly, and on the other, it represents a real security risk.
When new employees are hired or dismissed, all accesses have to be created or deleted individually, which is a time-consuming process.
The repeated login when switching between applications interferes with the actual work.
If users forget one of their passwords, they have to interrupt their work and keep the IT helpdesk busy resetting the password.
The use of numerous passwords encourages the use of very simple passwords, even multiple times.
If, on the other hand, IT forces every employee to use complicated, one-time passwords, constant password reset requests are inevitable.
SAP Single Sign-On provides you with a central administration of access data to which you can connect all your systems. This means that each user only has to remember one user ID, which they can use to log in once for all applications.
SAP Single Sign-On and SAP Identity Authentication Service (IAS) make a very significant contribution to raising security standards. The solutions support strong encryption methods and have extensive security features on board:
Mobile single sign-on with SAP Authenticator app
Risk-based authentication using access policies or two-factor authentication
External technologies such as smartcards or tokens can also be integrated
Single sign-on eliminates many points of attack on your IT in a single step, as only one connection to the central authentication server is established. This allows you to concentrate your protection measures on this one connection. The first time you authenticate to the system, an encrypted, time-limited ticket is issued to log in to additional applications. All these measures make it extremely difficult for digital intruders to obtain user data and gain unauthorized access to your system.
Single sign-on enables end-to-end authentication against SAP and non-SAP applications. Central management of access data increases security, as only one user ID is required for all applications. This means that passwords can be made truly secure without restricting user convenience too much. Constantly changing passwords for each application is a thing of the past, and password resets are minimized. You also avoid duplicate administration efforts in your IT and free up valuable resources.
SAP Identity Management focuses on the traceable management and consistent distribution of digital identities throughout their lifecycle – assignment, repeated adjustments, deletion. The SAP IdM solution makes it possible to flexibly map individual workflows so that required user accounts, roles, and authorizations can be assigned in a rule-based and automated manner.
