Getting Technical - What is SSO?

Tuesday, August 31, 2021

The Basics

Let’s start with the basics. SSO (Single Sign On) is a common method used for user authentication. It allows a user to have one username and password to access multiple applications. SSO can be utilized by large and small organizations to securely manage user lists and their sensitive information. 

Types of SSO 

There are several types of SSO services available. Which service you use will depend on your organization and your specific needs. To get started, our recommendation is to reach out to your Information Technology Department and set up the introduction. The good news - we are able to stay flexible and integrate with a variety of SSO services. 

How Can SSO Improve My Program

Implementing SSO into your Company Store or program is a great way to take the user experience to the next level. 

We often recommend SSO when any or all of the following are true:
  • I want to secure my company store so that it’s not accessible by the general public
  • I have multiple groups of users who need specific permissions
  • I want to assign and distribute rewards at scale 
  • My user base is large, so I want to make password management as easy as possible 

The Benefits of SSO: 
  • Enables users to remember fewer usernames and passwords 
  • Streamlines the sign-in process and improves user experience
  • Ability to manage access and permissions 
  • Improved store security and exclusivity 
  • Fewer complaints about forgotten passwords and troubleshooting
