What is Alfresco OpenAM SSO Integration?

The Alfresco Integration with OpenAM addon is a single sign-on (SSO) access management module that gives verified users a skeleton key to the system. This module makes the authentication part of cyber security easy for companies with centralized systems by reducing the number of passwords they have to remember. This protocol for web-based systems that permits users to access multiple applications while providing a single set of login credentials up front means that employees don’t have to remember a multitude of passwords. They just remember their main login and this module opens all the doors for them. The best part of this addon: IT teams are free to deal with more pressing issues than constant password resets.

Why is Alfresco OpenAM SSO Integration so important?

  • Avoid work stoppage – don’t waste time waiting on password resets
  • Maintain security –proven more secure than remembering multiple passwords
  • Efficiency– get the IT team working on IT issues not user error
  • Access management – control system credentials with the power of OpenAM
  • Eliminate password fatigue – and avoid typical user behavior, like writing passwords on a notepad in the employee’s desk, which is dangerous to system security

The Benefits of Alfresco OpenAM SSO

The Alfresco OpenAM SSO Integration addon is designed to eliminate password fatigue and all the problems associated with it. The average number of applications that an enterprise employee uses in the course of their work is currently 27 and growing. To compensate for the inability to remember each set of login credentials, employees often engage in dangerous behavior like keeping digital or physical lists of passwords in their desk or on their local machine. Studies show that using addons like Alfresco OpenAM SSO Integration avoids these security breaches while maintaining a solid authentication setup for your system. Alfresco OpenAM SSO Integration gives your employees an improved user experience (UX) in the company system and enables them to be more productive with their time. No more password resets. By implementing this integration with OpenAM, you will achieve full compliance and increased efficiency for both the general staff and IT.

How Does It Work?

The Alfresco OpenAM SSO Integration addon employs an access management application called OpenAM. OpenAM is a central authentication service (CAS). Skytizens has integrated this software with the Alfresco platform so that our clients can take advantage of single sign-on (SSO) authentication. That’s why we call it Alfresco OpenAM SSO Integration.

Alfresco OpenAM SSO Integration links up with all the disparate cloud-based and web-based applications that your company uses and coordinates the authentication processes to execute in one single step. Alfresco OpenAM SSO Integration serves as the “skeleton key” for a user’s multitude of accounts.

To the user, it looks simplified and easy. When the user wants to access a work-related application, they get a single login screen. The user supplies their main login credentials (username and password) and the integrated OpenAM software lets all the other applications know that this user has been authenticated properly. In effect, it unlocks all the applications so that the user does not have to deal with another sign-in during that session. When the user navigates to another platform or follows a link that directs them to a cloud application, the user goes directly to the page without being held up by another login screen. With the rise of SaaS, this addon really comes in handy: Once you log in, you are logged in everywhere. That’s the potential of one login per day.

The Skytizens Advantage: In the wider Alfresco developers community, the integration agent from OpenAM has a known bug in relation to the Alfresco Tomcat server that interrupts the login process. The Skytizens team of developers worked on the issue and created a patch for this issue. As a result, the Skytizens version of this Alfresco OpenAM SSO Integration addon is the most stable version available on the global market.

Multiple Platform Start-Up – Single sign-on (SSO) capabilities  are unlimited thanks to integration with OpenAM. This feature is ideal for companies with multiple systems, ancillary applications, and multiple SaaS platforms alongside the core Alfresco system.
