COMBINED SIMPLE SIGN-ON AND PASSWORD SYNCHRONIZATION OFFERS AN EFFICIENT ALTERNATIVE TO ENTERPRISE SINGLE SIGN-ON SOLUTIONS

 

Omada's Simple Sign-On Solution enables synchronization of passwords across all connected applications, so the user only has one password to remember. Essentially, when a user changes the password - due to a scheduled Active Directory password expiration process or a forgotten password - t Omada's solution synchronizes this password to all connected applications on the “back-end” enabling the user to log-on to all applications using the same password credentials. This back-end synchronization offers a more uncomplicated approach than implementing more traditional enterprise single sign-on.
