Basics of single sign-on
Discover how single SSO authentication systems work.
Simplify access to your software as a service (SaaS) apps, cloud apps, or on-premises apps from anywhere with single sign-on (SSO).
With SSO, your teams can use just one set of login credentials to conveniently access all their apps. No more memorizing multiple credentials or reusing passwords.
Provide a superior sign-in experience by reducing or eliminating sign-in prompts.
Simplify access and app discovery with a one-click, centralized app-launching experience.
Reduce the reuse of usernames and passwords across apps to help minimize the risk of breaches.
Centralize user account management and automatically add or remove user access across apps based on group membership or roles.
Enabling SSO with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) means users can sign-in once to access their Microsoft apps and other cloud, SaaS, and on-premises apps with the same credential.
With Azure AD, ASOS now gives new employees single sign-on access to the workplace tools they need, helping to minimize password proliferation.
Mattress Firm streamlined access for its workforce by providing single sign-on with Azure AD to over 40 apps, including Workday, Salesforce, Citrix, Microsoft Dynamics 365, Concur, Tableau and Office 365.
Employees love using Azure Active Directory for sign-on versus having multiple passwords and different accounts to manage.
