SmartSignin has a unique and secure architecture that allows for employees to use a single sign-on, using its patented SmartKey algorithm to ensure complete privacy and security of user data, without the often insecure implementation of cookies or tokens. This one encrypted log-in gives each user access to all the necessary cloud-based tools, while allowing administrators to revoke access easily at any time.
A “zero-knowledge tool,” all sensitive data is encrypted through SmartSignin before it even leaves any device.
SmartSignin puts password resets and user management within an administrator console, making it easy to manage accounts for employees located throughout the organization, allotting individual cloud access to each member.
For organizations that deal with regulatory and compliance requirements, SmartSignin can help ensure audits go more smoothly. Restricted access ensures administrators know every person who is accessing which apps when for how long. The system can also generate reports, complying with PCI DSS, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, and other regulations.
SmartSignin integrates with a business’s existing Active Directory, importing users and groups to provide the current level of access to each. When a new employee comes, an administrator only has to add a user to a specific group and establish his or her access rights to give that user the same rights as everyone else in the group. If a change has to be made to access, that change can be made with just a couple of clicks, rather than having to be applied to each individual user.
Because SmartSignin is connected to Active Directory, changes can be synced there, as well. This allows businesses to use SmartSignin as the sole user management tool. The app’s easy-to-use interface gives administrators the ability to map permissions across an entire enterprise quickly.
Businesses today are regularly adding users to networks who aren’t immediately located within the organization, ranging from the sales rep accessing tools to show clients from his iPad to those working at a home office or on a freelance basis. SmartSignin allows administrators to efficiently grant application access to these team members, who may be working from personal devices, without putting security at risk. This partner or service provider will be given one password that offers access to all authorized applications. Of course, for both internal and external employees, this leads to smoother transitions, technological implementations and, without constant requests to override forgotten passwords, a more relaxed tech support.
Uncreative passwords like QWERTY and 123456 have put thousands of businesses at risk. SmartSignin solves this by providing centralized provisioning, monitoring, and control. Admins can even provision the apps to users without ever telling them the actual log-in credentials and the end user can access the apps by a single click.
Users can be added and changed based on roles, user groups, and departments, which makes adding and removing users easy and secure. SmartSignin’s strong authentication helps protect connected accounts from phishing, pharming, identity theft, and other forms of account tampering, by consistently validating each user’s right to access each piece of data.
For individual users with account privileges, SmartSignin provides a full-service security solution. While each account requires both a password and cryptphrases, users may feel more secure with three knowledge-based questions required at login. To help organize apps, users can also tag individual applications. Apps can be grouped by such tags as “business applications,” “shopping,” “news,” “social networking,” and more.
