Tools4ever, the market leader in Identity and Access Management (IdM/IAM), has introduced a new feature, WebSSO, for its Enterprise Single Sign On solution, E-SSOM. With WebSSO, employees outside the corporate network, e.g. at home or while travelling, can access cloud applications with any device such as a PC, tablet, Android or smartphone via Single Sign On utilizing one password and username. This means users no longer have to remember multiple passwords and user names and can thus work more productively. Employees using their personal devices (BYOD) for business will then also be able to enjoy the same features that are used to in the corporate network.

It’s very easy to offer Single Sign On (SSO) within a network, but outside it and with devices other than the company workstation, this has been problematic up to now. This is because if the device is not in the company network, the user could not be authenticated with the Active Directory. A type of federation is then necessary, for example ADFS. Achieving SSO federation for cloud applications can be difficult or unaffordable to accomplish and often supported by the supplier. With the WebSSO solution from Tools4ever, companies can now offer SSO without regard to location or device.

WebSSO is based on an intelligent browser plug-in which processes the various log-ins for cloud applications automatically. For the log-in details, the plug-in communicates with the E-SSOM service in the company’s own network. This allows the log-in details to remain secure since they are stored in the company network and are not accessible at an unknown location in the ‘cloud’. For the end-user, the plug-in operates transparently and he or she can enjoy the SSO experience on any device and from any location.

“We are happy to have been able to add a new, important and frequently-requested feature to E-SSOM,” says Jacques Vriens, founder and general manager of Tools4ever BV. “Since the introduction of E-SSOM we have already added two-factor authentication - logging in with an access card and Follow Me, features applied particularly in healthcare institutions. With WebSSO we are now meeting our clients’ wishes to be able to work from home, and on other devices.”
