6 Benefits of a Single User Identity

As more and more businesses ‘move to the cloud,’ their teams expect and need, uninterrupted access to programmes and applications from anywhere, anytime and on any device. As such the need for single user identities or single sign-on has become much more important.

But just what is a ‘ Single User Identity’ 

In laymen’s terms, this means that users have a single point of login or authentication, irrespective of the platform, technology or domain. From here they can access a suite of applications without having to remember multiple passwords or credentials.

Here we share 6 key benefits of this approach

1)  1 account to rule them all – employees get an account with one password and they use it to log into everything related to their job role, and that doesn’t just apply to ‘techies’ either, it can cover all internal and external systems from payroll to the corporate Twitter account.

2)  This approach also provides a single place to log and monitor access – meaning you can see who has accessed what, and when, making it easier to monitor productivity, application use and any risk.

3)  You can keep on top of Security by providing conditional access which gives control over whether to let someone access a system based on up to date information (e.g. is it a trusted device, have they had the latest AV updates etc.)

4)  If someone leaves the business, all access can be removed across all systems in one quick process, no more generic passwords or having to ring your ex-employee for crucial log in details!

5)  It creates efficiency and productivity, remembering multiple passwords is pain let’s face and for some almost an impossibility, in adopting Single User Identity you’re removing a layer of frustration and creating more time for the important work to take place.

6)  It’s great for your customers too! if your business requires your customers to log in then making sign-up or log in a simple process increases the chance that customers will use your app or platform, buy your products or services and keep returning for more.
