Imprivata's OneSign Simplifies Password Management
What is Single Sign-On?
November 15, 2004
Imagine having separate login names and passwords for your desktop machine, email account, and the main application that you use for your job. At the same time, you might have a different user name/password combination for a web application or other programs. Then imagine, that all the systems you use enforce password aging, on different time schedules. In short order, the situation gets way out of hand.
It's a situation that Imprivata, Inc. hopes to improve with today's launch of OneSign 2.6, an enterprise single sign-on appliance that is now optimized for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9.
"It's impossible to keep on top of it," said Omar Hussain, Imprivata VP of Marketing and Operations referring to the past burden placed on users and administrators.
Simplifying the use of all those user name/password combinations, for each user is the aim of Single Sign-On SSO systems like OneSign.
Imprivata offers the OneSign enterprise SSO appliance as an effective and relatively low cost approach to managing user access and password functions, across multiple enterprise applications and machines.
