Authentication Services

Features and Benefits: Single Sign-on

Many complex heterogeneous organizations face challenges associated with multiple, disparate user identities and multiple logins. Consequently efficiency, security, and compliance may suffer. Authentication Services' patented technology empowers these organizations to achieve the "holy grail" of single sign-on--true and secure one identity, one directory, one password, one credential access to a high number of non-Windows systems and applications.

End-users can log into Active Directory, open a Web browser, and get single sign-on into the SAP Netweaver Portal with the only SAP-certified AD Bridge solution with this capability.Reduced Sign-on for Siebel -Eliminate the need for end-users to remember a separate username and password to access Siebel. Security and compliance are enhanced as Active Directory password policies and access control are enforced for Siebel logins.
