The proliferation of new cloud and web applications has a big downside for business users. They're wasting time trying to remember all their usernames and passwords, creating security issues by writing them down in plain sight and overburdening the help desk when they inevitably forget them. And the growing trend toward using personal devices and applications for business is only making matters worse.
Make It Easy on Yourself (and Your Users)
With SailPoint AccessIQ, users can log into applications without remembering all those pesky passwords, while IT makes sure they're signing on securely. The browser-based App Launchpad provides a clean, smartphone-like icon layout for application access. To further improve productivity, quick links ("approve expense report," "enter new lead") connect users directly to task-specific pages within applications. Behind the scenes, security professionals can manage standards-based and password-free sign-on options such as SAML, and beef up authentication for particularly high-risk users or applications.
Ensure Security without Impeding Access
The App Launchpad uses several mechanisms to both simplify and secure application access from any device – at work, home or on the go.
- Provide one-click access to any application using password-free SAML tokens, or via secure password replay if SAML doesn't apply.
- Simplify password management with single sign-on (SSO) and automated password resets via phone or browser.
- Secure with step-up authentication for high-risk users or applications by requiring a one-time password or other additional authentication factor.
