Features and Benefits

• Streamlines the login process -- no need to reenter usernames and passwords repeatedly for anything     integrated with single sign-on (improves usability for users)
• Reduces the number of usernames and passwords that need to be managed
• Fewer password related incidents and requests for assistance (lowers IT costs)
• Increased security and compliance



• Any candidate information system or online service for integration with Single Sign-on (SSO) must first be vetted for approval or denial by the Director of Infrastructure and Operations. Approved integrations with SSO must then go through the change management process in order to facilitate the planning and coordination of additions, modifications, or removals.
• The solutions must be compatible with standard Single Sign-on (SSO) capabilities, including SAML.
• The solution must also include a current contract for technical support and maintenance to assist with setup, implementation and on-going support.
