What is Single Sign On and how can it help you as a user?

SSO is used to simplify the login between multiple platforms. This means that you as a user should only log in once using certain credentials and you'll be able to log in to other applications as well with these credentials.

What is the advantage of SSO?

The advantage of Single sign-on is that the admins manage the users themselves. For example, when someone stops working for you, you put that person on inactive in your single sign-on solution and then they can no longer log in where you use single sign-on. Then you know that that person can no longer log in without immediately adjusting the users in all the software you use.

In addition, the users have fewer passwords if you can log in to different sites with the same single sign-on and you have control over whether certain extra parameters are taken into account (for example, only being able to log in from the office, etc.).

How do I get this set up for my firm?

You need to get your IT department to connect with the Silverfin SSO experts to get this set up. Please read the document attached at the bottom of the article to find out more.

We can set up:

1) Azure AD

2) Open ID connect

Just get in touch with your CSM with your requirements and we can get you set up!

How does it work once it's set up?

You can continue to add a new user as per normal! 

Please note! Once you use SSO to log in, for security reasons you always have to log in with SSO in Silverfin. The usual method, via e-mail address and password, will no longer work.
