Single Sign-On (SSO)

Single sign-on (SSO) enables users to access multiple applications with one set of credentials, simplifying login processes and enhancing user experience in workforce identity management.

What is Single Sign-On (SSO)?

Single Sign-On (SSO) in the context of Workforce Identity is a user authentication process that allows employees to access multiple applications or systems with one set of login credentials. In a corporate setting, this means that an employee can log in once and gain access to various work-related resources without needing to sign in again for each system. Let’s explore the concept of SSO in workforce identity management.


These capabilities position BAAR-IGA as a market leader in Single Sign-On solutions by offering unparalleled flexibility, security, and usability to organizations of all sizes.

Multi-Protocol Support

Ability to support various authentication protocols such as SAML, OAuth, and OpenID Connect, ensuring compatibility with diverse application environments and enhancing interoperability.

Adaptive Authentication

Incorporation of adaptive authentication mechanisms to dynamically adjust authentication requirements based on risk factors, enhancing security without compromising user experience.

Single Sign-On Portal

Provision of a user-friendly portal for end-users to access all their authorized applications with a single set of credentials, enhancing user experience and productivity.

Session Management

Granular control over user sessions, including the ability to revoke sessions remotely, set session timeouts, and monitor session activities, enhancing security and compliance.

Seamless Integration

Smooth integration with a wide range of third-party applications and identity providers, facilitating rapid deployment and minimizing disruption to existing workflows.

Centralized Dashboard

Provision of a centralized management dashboard for administrators to configure SSO settings, monitor user activities, and troubleshoot issues efficiently, improving overall management effectiveness.

Passwordless Authentication

Support for passwordless authentication methods such as biometrics, hardware tokens, or mobile authentication apps, reducing reliance on traditional passwords and strengthening security.

Scalability and Performance

Scalable architecture capable of handling high volumes of authentication requests with minimal latency, ensuring smooth performance even during peak usage periods.


SSO simplifies access to multiple applications with one login, enhancing security, reducing password fatigue, boosting productivity, aiding compliance, supporting remote work, and offering scalability in workforce identity management.

Simplified Access Management

SSO simplifies the process of accessing multiple applications and systems for employees. With SSO, they only need to remember one set of credentials, which streamlines their daily work routine. This ease of access is especially beneficial in environments where employees need to interact with numerous applications regularly.

Enhanced Security

Contrary to initial assumptions, SSO can enhance security. It reduces the tendency of employees to use weak or repeated passwords across multiple platforms. With SSO, organizations can implement strong, centralized authentication policies, such as two-factor authentication (2FA), more effectively. Furthermore, SSO minimizes the number of attack vectors for cybercriminals since there are fewer passwords to compromise.

Reduced Password Fatigue and IT Support Load

Employees often experience password fatigue due to the need to remember multiple complex passwords. SSO reduces this burden, which can lead to fewer password-related support requests to IT departments. This, in turn, lowers the operational costs associated with managing user access and password resets.

Improved Productivity and Efficiency

SSO facilitates quick and seamless access to necessary tools and information, reducing downtime associated with logging in and out of different systems. This leads to improved productivity and efficiency, as employees can focus more on their core job functions rather than on administrative login processes.

Compliance and Auditability

SSO solutions often come with centralized monitoring and logging capabilities, which can aid organizations in complying with various regulatory requirements. They provide a clear audit trail of user access and activities across different systems, which is crucial for compliance and security auditing.

Support for Remote and Hybrid Work Environments

In today’s increasingly remote and hybrid work environments, SSO plays a vital role in ensuring employees have secure and easy access to the resources they need, regardless of their location. This flexibility is key to maintaining operational continuity and employee productivity.

How we are different!

Seamless User Experience

A standout SSO feature offers users frictionless access to multiple applications with a single authentication step, dramatically simplifying the login process and enhancing user satisfaction.

Robust Security Protocols

Distinguished SSO solutions incorporate advanced security measures like multi-factor authentication (MFA) and adaptive authentication, ensuring secure access while balancing convenience and protection.

Wide Integration Range

An effective SSO feature supports a broad spectrum of applications and platforms, including cloud services, legacy systems, and mobile apps, facilitating comprehensive access management across the entire digital ecosystem.

Intelligent Session and Credential Management

Superior SSO features provide smart management of user sessions and credentials, including automatic timeout for inactive sessions and secure token-based authentication, ensuring optimal security and user management.

Case Study

Enhancing Operational Efficiency with Single Sign-On in a bank in India


A bank in India, with a workforce of 12000 employees, utilized over 100 different applications for various business functions, including core banking applications. A lot of applications were legacy and required separate login credentials, causing inconvenience and security risks due to password fatigue.


Employees often forgot their passwords, leading to frequent password reset requests, consuming significant IT resources. Moreover, this fragmented system posed a security risk, as employees tended to use simple, easy-to-remember passwords across multiple platforms.


The company implemented BAAR-IGA to unify access to all applications. This system allowed employees to log in once using a single set of credentials to access all the necessary applications. BAAR-IGA was integrated with the company’s existing identity provider, enabling centralized management of user identities and access controls.


The implementation involved mapping all applications to the SSO system and setting up secure authentication protocols like SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) and OAuth for certain applications and BAAR’s legacy solution for all legacy applications. Employees were trained on the new system, focusing on the importance of a strong, unique password for the SSO login.


Post-implementation, the company observed a significant reduction in password-related IT support tickets. Employees reported greater convenience and improved efficiency. The company also saw enhanced security, as the SSO system allowed for more robust password policies and simplified the process of revoking access for departing employees.


This case study demonstrates how SSO can effectively streamline access, offering a blend of convenience, efficiency, and security. By centralizing access to various applications, the company not only enhanced user experience but also fortified its cybersecurity posture.
