So why is SSO important?
SSO is an authentication process that allows users to access multiple applications using one set of credentials. Using different credentials each time to log into the multitude of applications you use for work increases enterprise security risk. With SSO, you are able to better manage your credentials for applications and use one set of credentials to log into multiple applications – significantly improving enterprise security.
Usability and Cost Savings
On top of the security improvements, SSO helps improve overall usability and productivity. With Microsoft and Google SSO enabled, you and others accessing the WorkMotion platform will no longer need to remember different passwords to login. This in turn also helps your IT department by reducing the number of lost password related tickets. For your IT department, in cases of offboarding talent who no longer work for your organization, SSO provides them with a simple and quick way to restrict access to the platform.
How It Works
SSO for GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) Compliance and Beyond
SSO is just one aspect of many security measures enabled by WorkMotion. We understand that security compliance, especially in relation to GDPR requirements for the security of data storage, transfers and processing is a critical component for all European organizations.
According to GDPR requirements, organizations are expected to put in place appropriate technical measures across their company and “…secure IT networks in the event of accidental events or malicious actions…” . SSO is one aspect of a technical measure that strengthens your position for GDPR compliance. WorkMotion is also continually working on advancing these security measures for our users. Another upcoming feature will be incorporating different access rights within our platform, another GDPR requirement.
