Single Sign-On for the Cloud and Beyond: How Comprehensive Is Your Strategy?

The cloud is the topic in IT these days. From SaaS and cloud computing to Web applications and mobile devices, hosted services offer enterprises new advantages over resources managed in-house. But to deliver on this promise, they must be integrated seamlessly into the user experience. More importantly still: they must be secure.

The extension of single-sign-on (SSO) to a wide range of applications and third party IT resources has become a focus of technology for meeting these requirements. But to truly “future proof” the enterprise, organizations need to ask themselves some important questions about their SSO strategy.

EMA Managing Research Director Scott Crawford and Citrix Principal Product Manager Raghunandan will explore the key questions to ask in this free Webinar.
