What makes for an innovative digital solution? Better yet – what is an inventor? By definition, an inventor is someone who invents, especially one who devises some new process, appliance, machine, or article; one who makes inventions. Some might say that an inventor is anyone that can come up with a creative and necessary idea to solve a reoccurring problem. Today, it seems that without inventors and inventions it would be nearly impossible to live in society. What ever would we do without these top 25 inventions of 2015 here?
While the world around us is exploding with inventors and inventions, we cannot forget about the explosions within the cyber world. In a fast growing digital world, it is becoming the norm for businesses to fall back on a completely digital system – and SSO and SSPR solutions are in high demand to make the lives of businesses and their employees a whole lot easier.
Elements of an Innovative Digital Solution
What Is SSO?
Single Sign-On is a user authentication process that allows you to sign onto all of your applications with a single name and password. By doing so, it eliminates the need to sign in to each individual application that you
may use throughout the day.
SSO also serves to eliminate the need to remember multiple passwords – which can be easy to forget. That brings me to my next point…
What Is SSPR?
Self Service Password Reset is a tool that allows users to reset their password or perform changes to their personal accounts without the use of a third party. This functionality eliminates the need to contact help desk personnel to retrieve the password or make any necessary changes. It is all but essential to provide users with a method of self-service if you are to have a successful and innovative digital solution.
Now, for those individuals or organizations who wish to have a solution that provides more than a simple sign on method, don’t fret! There are options that offer all inclusive authentication packages – or so they say. While some may say they are all inclusive, the reality is not always so. Let’s look at some examples:
OneLogin, a self-proclaimed Enterprise Identity Solution, claims to offer a multi-factor authentication system. For those of you outside of the European and United States regions though, you may be out of luck. Yes, they may have 9 operating systems for the United States and Europe (as seen here), but would you consider that all inclusive?
In terms of a unique, innovative digital solution, you might want a little bit more bang for your buck, so to speak.
Okta has a variety of platforms that offer what you may be looking for, but finding all of those products together in one solution may be fairly difficult. A list of the platforms can be found here. The website alone can make it difficult to determine how solutions and products are segmented, and what exactly you get for your money. Innovation doesn’t always have to be so confusing…
For each of these companies, the pricing is on a per user/per platform basis. The more platforms that you buy and the more employees that you have – the more expensive the annual cost is going to be.
So, with all of that being said, you might ask, what makes PortalGuard different?
