EmpowerID SSO Manager enables everyone to access cloud and corporate applications using a single username and password. Federation allows users who are authenticated against one directory to access additional applications and services without re-authenticating when a trust relationship has been established.
SSO Manager acts as an authentication gateway or broker allowing internal corporate users to login with their Active Directory accounts and then seamlessly sign into cloud applications like SalesForce.com, Webex, or Google Apps. Business partners or customers have the same single sign-on experience for corporate applications like Microsoft SharePoint and may sign in with their corporate credentials or even their social media identities like Office 365, Google Apps, Facebook, Salesforce, Yahoo, and others. This new model eliminates multiple usernames and passwords and enables single sign-on between organizations.
