Single Sign-On

Utilizing single sign-on functionality will enable employees to access different IT resources across an organization including devices, applications and networks. By permitting users to enter one name and password for everything, IT admins don't have to worry as much about employees losing or forgetting passwords. In addition, it is far easier to remember a single, highly secure password than a handful of weak passwords. Many SSO solutions create trust in a way that is different and potentially more secure than username and password.

Corporate identities are the most valuable digital asset for hackers today. They are constantly being attacked and are perpetually at risk. Identities are the proverbial keys to the kingdom, and include private enterprise applications, devices, networks and data. If a hacker were to gain access to the right credentials, it could be devastating to an organization.

One of the best ways to keep corporate identities safe is to practice proper password management. From an IT perspective, this entails determining the types of passwords that are acceptable and where they are housed on the company's systems. It also focuses on having a unique password per service where possible.

In this slideshow, Rajat Bhargava, CEO and co-founder, JumpCloud, has identified the top five factors of sophisticated password management strategies used to protect corporate identities.
