What Is Single Sign-On SSO?

Single Sign-On (SSO) is a user and session authentication process that allows users to access various applications and services with one set of login credentials. This way, users do not have to memorize multiple credentials and can log in once to gain access to different authorized applications.

Large organizations and enterprises use SSO to facilitate the employee authentication process when accessing multiple applications. The risk of security breaches related to password management is minimized with SSO.
