Security Mentor announces SSO capabilities for best in class security awareness training.
Pacific Grove, CA (PRWEB) February 15, 2013
Security Mentor, creator of innovative information security awareness training that employees love to take, today announced that enterprise, government, educational, and non-profit customers can now access Security Mentor’s cloud-based training using federated identity single sign-on (SSO) capabilities. SSO technology streamlines the authentication process by eliminating the need for additional credentials, thus reducing barriers for user access to training, increasing compliance and ultimately ensuring greater success.
“Organizations have embraced SSO as a means of reducing their administrative costs and to help employees overwhelmed with too many usernames and passwords,” explained Craig Kunitani, Security Mentor’s chief technology officer. “We want to give our customers the ability to access our training in the manner that best suits their business – be that having their employees sign in to our online training with username and password, deploying our lessons on their internal SCORM 1.2-compliant learning management system (LMS), or by leveraging their single sign-on infrastructure to seamlessly access our hosted service.” Security Mentor’s SSO implements the prevalent Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 OASIS Standard.
Many employees don’t know or understand security in the workplace and inadvertently take risks with company information. Security Mentor effectively educates staff about information security risks through interactive, rich media, Flash-based lessons designed both to capture interest and be memorable. Because Security Mentor training is online, it can be accessed anytime and anywhere. And Security Mentor’s implementation of SSO makes security awareness training even easier for employees to take by allowing them to seamlessly connect to Security Mentor after authenticating to their corporate network. Moreover, security staff will benefit from SSO with simplified administration and reduced internal support costs.
