Single Sign-On (SSO) Authentication

Introduction

Single Sign-On (SSO) is s an authentication method that enables users to securely authenticate with multiple applications and websites by using just one set of credentialsIn other words, SSO is the capability of a system to share login credentials with another system. The benefits of using SSO are the following:

  • You need to remember fewer passwords.
  • Simplifies username and password management for admins.
  • Reduces security risks for your organization and employees.
  • Increases speed to login and eases the onboarding of new employees to the system.

In OfficeRnD Hybrid, you can enable SSO for both the Web and Admin portals and enable your employees to log in using your SSO provider. The most commonly used external SSO providers by our clients are Google’s GSuite and Microsoft Azure.

Keep in mind that when you activate an SSO authentication, the following OfficeRnD Hybrid authentication services are disabled:
  • The standard login with an OfficeRnD Hybrid user and password
  • The "Reset password" links in OfficeRnD Hybrid
  • The token for authentication that employees receive when invited to the Members Portal.
