Administrators Can Now Enable SAML Single Sign-On in iMonnit
New iMonnit account settings enable organizations to allow users to log in using their work computer access credentials. The new login authentication process is called Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) single sign-on (SSO). Administrators and users will have an even more seamless and secure iMonnit login experience.
The primary role of SAML SSO is to improve online security and help people access multiple web applications using one set of login credentials. Other benefits of the new iMonnit SAML SSO process include:
- Eases iMonnit administrator management of user credential controls, setup, and use
- Helps organizations meet industry, corporate, and government web access security requirements
- Allows organizations to define and manage security levels like two-factor authentication (2FA) and credential authentication standards
- Provides iMonnit users simplified and authenticated access without remembering multiple passwords for employee software systems
Log into iMonnit to see the new SAML SSO account and user settings. Any questions? Call your Monnit Sales Representative at (801) 561-5555.
