Tools4ever, a market leader in identity governance and administration (IGA), has integrated their HelloID solution with Google Chromebooks. HelloID is a cloud-based portal that allows end users easy and safe access to cloud applications on their smartphone, tablet, or laptop via Single Sign-On.

A Google Chromebook is a basic version of a laptop, aimed at users who work with web applications. Chromebooks run on Chrome OS, a lightweight operating system, developed for use inside or outside of organization.

The default login on a Chromebook utilizes your Google account credentials. HelloID makes it possible for an end user to instead login with their Active Directory account, allowing for one less set of credentials that need to be remembered by the end user.

For the IT department, HelloID is extremely helpful by allowing them to gain full control over access to applications, dramatically increasing security. HelloID allows for the organization to easily require stricter guidelines for credentials, as well as allowing access to be granted or taken away with one click. It also allows for all user actions to be logged, which ensures that the organization meets their compliance requirements.

Authentication of the user is handled by the Identity Provider of the organization, such as Active Directory, ADFS, or LDAP. HelloID not only handles the authentication, it also is beneficial by allowing for one portal for all Single Sign-On applications. The benefit for the end user is that they can work more efficiently, since they have one, clearly defined portal in which all necessary applications are available immediately after only one log on.

“Google Chromebooks are a very convenient solution for users who mainly use web applications, such as students and employees on the go,” stated Dean Wiech, Managing Director of Tools4ever. “Our Single Sign-On solution HelloID is a perfect addition, since the user only needs to log on once, to have immediate access to all web applications no matter where they are.”
